Ice Cream Touring in Vancouver

Submitted by on July 8, 2017 – 8:55 amNo Comment

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, ice creamIs Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in your plans for summer vacation?

For the third year, the Vancouver tour company, Off the Eaten Track, is offering a Gourmet Ice Cream Tour until the end of September 2017. It’s held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursdays and Sundays with four stops and six ice cream samples.

The experience starts at Railtown Café (397 Railway Street) where you’ll try three of chef Alex Abley’s flavors. You’ll also walk around Railtown and learn about the history and evolution of this area of the city.

The next stop on the tour, Cadeaux Bakery (172 Powell Street), is located on the edge of Gastown and run by pastry chef Eleanor Chow. The bakery is known for one of the best ice cream sandwiches in the city (salted chocolate shortbread with house-made ice cream sandwiched in-between).

From there, you’ll move to the cobbled streets of Gastown. No ice cream tour would be complete without soft serve, always a crowd favorite. However, Soft Peaks (25 Alexander Street) doesn’t serve just any soft serve; theirs is made from local, organic milk and features gourmet toppings. You’ll get to try the Mudslide, their signature twist topped with TimTam flakes and chocolate syrup.

However, save room for one last stop. You’ll finish the tour at Chinatown’s Virtuous Pie (583 Main Street) — they specialize in plant-based vegan ice cream made from cashew and coconut milk.
