Beat the heat with an ice cream treat!
This blog may be a week late (considering Alberta’s recent record-setting heat wave) but it’s still a topic we want to scream about all summer long: WHERE TO GET ICE CREAM IN THE LEDUC REGION!
We’ve got the scoop (literally and figuratively) on 10 spots where YOU can grab the ice cream treat of your dreams…
***Blog edited as of June 6, 2021***
ADDRESS: 4728 50th Ave, Leduc, AB T9E 6Y6
You may know them for their cinnamon buns, you may know them for their coffee, but DID YOU KNOW the Leduc Coffee Shop also serves ice cream?! Assorted flavours are available in three sizes (baby, small, or large), but you should probably upgrade to a Brownie Supreme Sundae… Because, why not?
ADDRESS: 4809 43a Ave #106, Leduc, AB T9E 8J6
Marble Slab Creamery Leduc has an almost endless range of flavours, unlimited tasty mix-ins, hand-rolled cones, and real Canadian dairy ice cream. They also serve gourmet ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and ice cream sandwiches – perfect to celebrate summer!
ADDRESS: 51 St, AB-39, Calmar, AB T0C 0V0
It’s a literal miniature barn that sells hard ice cream, and it’s called Maggie Moo’s. If that isn’t enough to convince you to make the trip out to Calmar for ice cream, the impressive array of flavours they have will! Try it for yourself, and snap a selfie in front of the barn while you’re there.
Sometimes we make mistakes… Like skipping over the fact that Leduc’s Blackgold Husky Station sells amazing ice cream! They’ve got a great selection of flavours, outstanding customer service, and you can’t beat the prices. Thank you to everyone who let us know about this killer spot for ice cream!
ADDRESS: Beaumont, AB T4X 1E5
What do you get when you take a shipping container and fill it with 80 flavours of premium hard ice cream? You get… 80 Flavours Ice Cream mobile ice cream stand! Be sure to try one (or all 80) of their flavours next time you visit Beaumont.
ADDRESS: 5017 50 St, Beaumont, AB T4X 1J9
Across the street from 80 Flavours is Five-O Bar & Grill… and they’ve got a HUGE selection of Foothills Ice Cream! Swing by with the family to enjoy a scoop, float, or milkshake on their beautiful patio. Insider tip for adults: Let the bartender add a shot of something special to your ice cream, because treats come in all shapes and sizes.
Jef’s Cafe is the perfect place to cool off in Beaumont with ice cream and milkshake options! We could go on and on about all the reasons we’re obsessed with this cute café, but we’ll leave that for another blog.
ADDRESS: 5 Superior St, Devon, AB T9G 1E9
We’ve said it before in previous blogs, and we’ll say it again… Phalika’s Thai Food is an excellent choice for a quick bite to eat in Devon – especially on your way down to Voyageur Park. BUT – did you know they serve delicious ice cream too? And the portion sizes are HUGE!
ADDRESS: 25 Superior St, Devon, AB T9G 1Y9
With a name like The Sugar Shack, you would imagine that they should serve ice cream. And, they sure do… 12 flavours of yummy soft serve in fact! If you’re not sold on ice cream, try a milkshake from here instead (they also come in 12 different flavours).
ADDRESS: 5102 50 Ave, Calmar, AB T0C 0V0
Of course the Calmar Burger Bar serves ice cream, but did you know they have sundaes and milkshakes too? We know where we’re going for ice cream next time.
There’s so many reasons to take a road trip out to Rolly View at some point this summer, but that’s a topic for another blog. No road trip is complete without a stop for ice cream, and the Rolly View General Store has you covered with tasty soft serve!
Did you hear somebody scream for ice cream too, or was that you? Seriously though – check out some (or all) of these ice cream spots throughout the Leduc Region this summer!
