“an icecream lover's delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

Once you have sampled icecream here you come back again and again. Waffle cones made fresh on the premises. Excellent creamy icecream.

“Had better for less”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2012 via mobile

Ice cream was average at best and overpriced! I have had better for less! I tried coldstone creamery on my way from Toronto and its much better for less. Merrickville is still a great community to visit so do your self a favour and see all the historic buildings and nice little shops.

“Great flavours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012

Popped in on our way out of town for a cone. A nice variety of homemade ice cream and gelato flavours. There was a large candy variety as well. The service was very friendly.

“Wonderful gelato and ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2012

This place is always busy in the summertime and it is easy to see why. Their ice cream and gelato is made on the premises and it is wonderful. We always get a single scoop in a waffle cone and the two cones come to over $10, so it's not cheap, but you really get what you pay for.

We recently got a puppy and discovered that they have complimentary puppy cones (tiny cones with a small amount of ice cream) for dogs. Our puppy loves it!
