Julien offered me a huge cup full of a ‘freestyle’ mix of flavours which I ate on the run.  I didn’t get time to talk to him about the specific flavours he put in the cup but I definitely tasted apple pie, grapefruit, mango, and apple.  It was all oh so good…  I also took some frozen cookie dough, and a pint of vanilla with a caramel swirl to go.

There’s definitely more that I want to try for next time, and I am already looking forward to my next trip back!

Decor: Very nice.  Someone has obviously taken the time to come up with something a little out of the ordinary from your usual ice cream shop.  There is also a terrace in the front that I can imagine would be pretty rocking on a warm summers day.

Service: I went at an off time, so I don’t know what it would be like when it’s busy.

Price: Reasonable.

Good For: A treat, something extra special when you are craving ice cream.

Baby Friendly: Yes.  There were a couple steps down into the shop, and it might be a bit crammed to get a stroller between the fixed tables, but I think it’s doable.  There’s also the terrace.  I doubt there are change facilities.

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
