This ice cream was very delicious and fresh. Great homemade ice cream with interesting flavours. Service was good and I can never turn down ice cream.

It was a hot day so a visit was welcome. The mint chocolate chip that I had was good but the chips of chocolate were rather large. The honey ice cream also good but not exceptional. I think families would enjoy this more as there...More

Rich and creamy super delicious Disco dan was my favorite. Honey comb was my wife's... We first went here after biking at the dirt jump park so we were hot and thirsty... this was an awesome treat! The next day we got a icecream cake...More

Very mediocre, not a whole lot of flavour. Expensive for what you get. Am really appalled at the attitude and response of the owner, to icecreamgirls comment below. Really in bad taste. People are entitled to their opinions, that's why this review area is here!...More

A friend from Fernie brought us here for dessert when we were visiting. His son picks the huckleberries for the ice cream. This was the BEST (and actually the only) huckleberry ice cream I've ever had! Fun place, great ice cream!

The ice cream was well deserved and tasted great. There was no line up and staff was very friendly. They even had a kids picnic table for our 4-year old to sit and enjoy her ice cream.

Have had much better, especially for a small $4 single scoop. I guess natural and no additives means less taste. Take it or leave it...I'd leave it 😞

Our neighbor had just baked a Saskatoon pie, so we offered to help eat it. We had to supply the ice cream. Lots of selection and the ice cream was of very good quality. Quite expensive though..

We found the ice cream that we had at the Cranbrook Store, to be not very flavourful and way over priced for what you get. Let people feel they're getting value for money, otherwise you'll get a lot of one time visitors. We could have...More

Thank you for your thoughts. We use premium ingredients in our ice cream. We could make it cheaper using fillers and cornstarch, but we choose to make our ice cream the best we can. If you think you can make it cheaper and better yourself,...More

Their ice cream is so good, we tried too many options and we loved them! The staff is friendly and nice, you should visit them!
