Here’s the Scoop


Okay, the last few weeks were a little chilly and the warm weather might not be here for long. But are you going to let iffy weather curtail your summertime ice-cream outings?
We thought not. So we took it upon ourselves to scout out the most interesting ice cream venues. We know, tough job, but someone has to do it…. Here’s our collection of tips, in an assortment of flavours:

Rainbow is the only word to describe La Casa Gelato’s legendary range of ice cream flavours—218 flavours on display at any one time! Parking is easy and free samples are plentiful. (Dill pickle, anyone? How about wasabi?) Take part in a Vancouver tradition by visiting this Misceo family business in East Vancouver.

Orange you glad we found out about Brazza Gelato & Coffee on Lonsdale in North Van? This friendly spot is renowned for its excellent coffee, smooth as silk, and boasts homemade gelato to match. A variety of flavours, including many non-dairy and non-sugar options.

Mango: As in, if you and your man go to Vancouver Island this summer, do what any self respecting ice cream aficionado would do and make a pit stop at the fabulous Coombs General Store. A SavvyMom can get cones for her beloved and kids—not just because the ice cream’s cheap and yummy, but because it will buy you some extra time to browse around at this funky market/tourist attraction that’s infamous for the goats often found grazing on the roof. (A sneaky trick that’s transferable to a variety of holiday destinations.)
