The best ice cream we have ever had....32 flavors I think! The size of the cone was huge! Went back several times while we were in Parksville! It was pretty much a meal because it was so big and if you go with the grandkids...More

There are so many flavors to choose from. The ice cream is yummy and you get a lot for the price. Highly recommend.

This has a huge range of ice creams ans enormous scoops with every combination of tubs and cones. There's a decently sized seating area outside and all shaded. A nice stop in a nice town.

So many varieties of ice cream and other frozen treats here. It was all so good! You can have a taste test to see what you'd like. The young staff were friendly, fast and enthusiastic!

We came in almost right after lunch but the tempting array of flavours was too much to skip. Choose a cup or cone at the same price, and enjoy a huge scoop (or two) of so many different flavours, many of which I had never...More
