Cool off this summer with local ice cream and frozen treats! Some of these local ice cream shops are fairly new to Edmonton and offer completely new and unique flavours you can’t find elsewhere. Some are also local neighbourhood favourites that have been scooping for Edmonton for years.

And don’t just picture a classic cone when thinking of the coolest or best ice cream shops in Edmonton. You can find ice cream rolled up, dipped in chocolate, mixed for a milkshake, or as a sandwich. Rather than trying to decide on a flavour, we suggest just trying them all!

Scoop n Roll

What started as a single food truck is now one of the most popular shops in Edmonton with 7 locations and their sister truck, MishMash. This was the first place in Canada to offer the rolled ice cream which comes from Thailand where you can order it as Tim Pad. This version of ice cream is all about the process and the fresh ingredients. Your order is created by pouring liquid ice cream over a frozen pan where it is mixed up with fresh fruit, nuts, or candy. As it freezes, it becomes easier to roll into convenient little cylinders.

  • 3414 Gateway Boulevard
  • 375 St. Albert Trail
  • 9908 170 St NW
