In my quest to try every possible ice cream offering in Montreal, or so it seems, I dragged the family across town to La Diperie which is located just east of St-Laurent on des Pins.
La Diperie is a new little shop which offers vanilla soft serve dipped in a choice of 15 different flavours from milk chocolate to maple syrup. It can then be sprinkled with a variety of toppings to add up the deliciousness factor. My husband went for sucre à la crème and I tried “La Diperie” which is a combination of almonds, milk chocolate and caramel ganache. The little one had soft serve in a cup with milk chocolate draped over it.
The prices are reasonable and I like the fact that this is a little twist on your regular soft serve. The place is tiny and I only recall a few stools to sit on so expect your ice cream to go, or sit on a bench outside like we did.
I encourage you to check it out!
La Diperie, 64 Avenue Des Pins Est
Decor: A simple summery take out joint.
Service: Well, we were served right away. There was maybe a couple people ahead of us.
Prices: Reasonable – see photo above.
Food: Well, the ice cream was great! I mean it’s regular soft serve but, well, I love soft serve…
Good For: When isn’t it a good time for ice cream?
Baby Friendly: This place is tiny, so tiny we thought twice about wheeling in our umbrella stroller. But I mean, it’s ice cream, and it can be eaten outside, on a park bench, or wherever. What kid doesn’t love ice cream?
