These places prove you can have ice cream your way by offering it rolled, in a taco, poured over coffee, topped with more sweets, and mixed up in a shake or cake.

XO Ice Cream & Waffles

Beyond the cones, there are many ways to serve ice cream. XO in Calgary’s south end serve up their ice cream in of course the cones, but also over waffles, in sundaes, in milkshakes, in cakes, and paired with espresso. Take it a little further, and have your espresso poured over your ice cream for the ultimate pick-me-up (also called an Affogato).

Milk Ice Cream Shop

The unique and tasty flavours from Milk draw on Vietnamese drinks and treats for inspiration. From this, we get delectable flavours like: Boujee Black Sesame, a combination of sweet almonds and roasted black sesame flavours; or Viet Coffee, flavoured with chicory and Cà Phê Sữa (which gives it the coffee flavour!). Take your Milk Ice Cream to go in a cone, ‘grab-n-go minis,’ or pints.
