there are plenty of choices with the favs changing weekly. look for seasonal fruit ice cream-like peach -- fab! sundaes look great will try one next time. There were a group of seniors out for a visit and they ordered every sundae under the sun! Based on their reaction, they were a very happy group!

No trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake is complete for me without a visit to the Avondale Dairy. This time I chose a dip of coffee heath bar with a dip of kalua fudge. They weigh your ice cream and charge you by its weight. They also have specialities -- banana splits, sundaes, etc. Warning: the sign says that they close for the... More

I go to this dairy bar about twice a month on average. It's a nice short drive out into the country where the ice cream is actually made. The atmosphere is unchanged in almost 50 years so you get some nostalgia too with "old" black & white photographs on the wall of area points of interest. There are swings for... More

Many choices of ice cream. Popular location. Great to take your family out for a treat. All the ice cream is very good, play area for the younger children.

Being new to the area, our Realtor took us here for a cool treat on a warm day - after visiting many homes. This was one of the highlights of they day! Lovely, family business with heart.

Fantastic place to go for sundaes. The milkshakes are amazing. The ice cream is sold by weight and isn't cheap. The quality is very good. Staff are efficient. On a warm day be prepared for line ups.
