Five urban Vancouver ice cream shops we love

Innocent Ice Cream

We love this adorable, gluten-free ice cream sandwich shop! Handmade, all natural flavours such as Coconut Rose, Chai, and Cherry Bomb paired with non-dairy, egg-free cookies are a dream come true. Can’t make up your mind? Order a flight of minis – perfect for kids and sharing. Located on Main Street, it’s a convenient stop on your way to Queen Elizabeth Park or Nat Bailey Stadium.

Rain or Shine

Fresh, natural, sustainable whole ingredients are what define this family-owned gem. By partnering with local suppliers, Rain or Shine creates unique flavours like Coffee Toffee (with freshly roasted JJ Bean espresso beans) or Blueberry Balsamic (with organic blueberries from Hazelmere Organics Farms in Surrey and balsamic vinegar from the Vancouver Olive Oil Company). Check out their vegan, gluten-free and egg-free options at any of their three locations!

Mister – Artisan Ice Cream

Liquid nitrogen ice cream? Think richer, creamier, made-from-scratch deliciousness with natural ingredients sourced from local farmers. This is one ice cream shop you won’t want to miss! Located in Yaletown, a short walk from the Roundhouse Community Centre and oceanside David Lam Park.

Mini waffle flights, custom-made ice cream pies, and kombucha floats are just a few of the incredible menu items at Buckets. All of their ice cream is made to order, in house on Main Street. Mango Lassi, Genmaicha Tea, and tropical Pandan are just a few of their popular ready-to-go pints. Yum!

La Casa Gelato

This list would not be complete without mentioning this legendary gelateria on Venables. Open until 11 pm seven days a week, you can always count on La Casa to satisfy a late-night craving. With 238 flavours, half the fun is finding your favourite and daring a sample of Durian, Purple Yam, Wasabi, or Pear Gorgonzola.
