This place is packed, but they push people through extremely quickly. For each 'size' you are getting a baseball sized scoop of ice cream. So if you get the largest size, that is an intense amount of ice cream! My go to: Get the 'middle'...sized one, and mix peanut butter chocolate, with Banana Boat (Banana ice cream, Chocolate veins, and Marshmallow Fluff!) Just go. SO cheap too.More

Had an amazing experience at Kawarthas Dairy in Barrie. Not only was the ice cream amazing but the girl that was working, I believe her name was Kelsey was awesome. She suggested trying the Key Lime Pie flavour and her customer service was impeccable. Will...definitely be returning!More

Sent an email complaint to Kawartha Dairy Barrie over a week ago about some issue we were having, and they do not have the decency to respond......... First complaint - While we stood in line for an ice cream, we noticed how many flavors were...unavailable (some very popular ones !!!!!!!!!! We Figured for a company/store this big there would be more stock available especially in the middle of Summer!!!!!! 2nd complain - this is a big one - as we are in the midst of a pandemic and everyone is trying to be safe and practice safety measures. I fee the girl who served us did not practice safety measures with regards to "customers" safety only for her own safety: We paid with cash, the clerk made sure she shut the window in order to put on gloves in order to accept the cash. But what she did next was so wrong - she came back to the window with the change in her hand, with no glove on....................is Kawartha Dairy only trying to protect their staff NOT their customers who bring in revenue!!!!!!! 3rd complaint - we asked for cones and when it was served to us it was in a cone but upside down in a cup!!!!!!! this was not what we ordered, we ordered cones not cups, it made eating the ice cream very difficult. When we went to turn it upside down to eat the ice cream in a cone (what we had ordered) we was not able to and ended up with more on the floor! If you do not serve ice cream in a cone why didn't she tell us that when we placed our orders???? She should have advised it would be served this way - we would have gone elsewhere ie: Baskin Robins, Diary Queen or even McDonalds where they serve ice cream in conesMore

We recently ordered two ice cream cakes for birthdays. The staff were very helpful and flexible in taking the order, making the cake, and during pickup. We chose custom ice cream flavour, icing decoration colours and additions such as sprinkles. The cakes were delicious and...a real hit at birthday parties. And by the way - the ice cream is delicious! We chose the flavour - Birthday Cake.More

Kawartha Dairy has the best selection of Ice Cream flavours, they’re reasonably priced, and there’s plenty of spots to sit inside or outside to eat your ice cream.
