“Chocolate to die for!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Friendly owner, shared unique history of the island (yes, movie stars own homes on Saltspring Island), recommended places to see, things to do, and we had the best Belgian Chocolate Gelato that his wife makes, to die for. Don't miss this little gem on SSI.

“The Best Ice Cream & Chocolates in the World!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We are so lucky to have Harlan's here. Hand made chocolates and gelato; favourite flavour is Salted Caramel and believe me it's to die for; the owners are super nice also!

“Best Ice Cream in the whole world”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

My favourite winter flavour is the salted caramel, in the summer i normally go for the blackberry gelato or the blueberry. I must say that everything about this place speaks of quality and care and the pure love of fine chocolate and the best ice cream i've ever had anywhere. Highly recommend!

“Sweetest place on Saltspring Island”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

This little shop is a fantastic stop on your travels around the island. The gelato is by far the best I have ever tasted, with unique flavors not found anywhere else and made with ingredients from the island, I would highly recommend this place. The store also has a great variety of candies and chocolates. Some yummy treats from around the world and also in house made chocolates that I can't stop eating. We go there often and is usually our first stop when we go to the island

“Best place in Ganges for an ice cream cone on a hot day!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Just plain good ice cream. Many flavors -- I'm partial to the chocolate but that's just me... Friendly service.
