A perfect way to end a summer night after dining at one of the local restaurants. After a nice dinner somewhere around the area, it's nice to go down by the harbour and grab a nice ice cream (at a CHEAP price) and enjoy a nice walk. Burgess meets its demand, perfectly.

Shaw or London Ice Cream or Kawartha would be no much nicer than Nestlé.) Burgers, fries, etc. are good and dependable. The service was friendly, enthusiastic, helpful and FAST. Nephew loved...

This place was recommended to us by our neighbour who grew up in Leamington. We really enjoyed the take out food, onion rings really good, chips and gravy and even tried the corned beef. Company with us had the foot long hot dog. We sat at the picnic table and later walked around the marina. Next time we visit out... More

Ice cream is very good with a good variety of flavors. Long lines waiting for service reflects how good the ice cream is but also how slow the service is.
