“One of the Best in NS...”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

This is the benchmark that I hold other ice-cream places up to, and very seldom have I found one to meet the standard. When it does, it's usually way more expensive...

“Great spot!”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

We thought this was just an ice cream and dessert shop, but were very pleasantly surprised by the rice bowl dish and awesome chicken spinach salad! The desserts and ice cream are to die for, too. Clean as a whistle and friendly staff.

“Quirky, eclectic, delicious!”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

Ice cream sure, but also soup, sandwiches, salads, wraps, quesadillas, and who knows what else coming up. The bread and cookies are soft, dense, and chewy, just like I like. Always a treat to hit Dan's! Highly recommended for out of towners especially.

“It doesn't get much better than this”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

Stopped here for lunch. They offer everything, much more than just ice cream. Reasonable prices and speedy, friendly service. And the food was exceptional. What else could you ask for?

“BEST FOOD EVER!!!!”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

I live in Calgary, and every time I travel back home to Nova Scotia, I make a point to visit Dan's. This is the best restaurant, with the friendliest staff. I recommend his shoppe to everyone I meet. My favourite thing to order is the chocolate twist with colored sprinkles :-)
