Village Ice Cream

Village Ice Cream is a hidden gem. Tucked away at the back of a cul-de-sac, I found it one hot summer night after 9 pm by the long line ups coming out of the front door.

They have about a dozen enticing flavours: from the usual suspects like Village vanilla bean, chocolate, and strawberry to the more exotic like cardamon, Phil & Sebastian Coffee, and toasted coconut. They also have some special seasonal flavours that change on a regular basis like black sesame and toasted marshmallows. I find that their seasonal flavours are in limited supply and tend to run out early.

I tried their Phil & Sebastian Coffee which tasted like strong coffee in a creamy ice cream form. The strawberry ice cream had subtle hints of strawberry that wasn’t too sweet with flecks of real strawberry to show that they used real fruits. I was surprised to find out that they source their ingredients from some of my favourite local sources such as the Silk Road Spice Merchant.

Their single scoop portions are generous. Their fresh waffle cones that are made-to-order compliments this nicely.

Overall, this is a great place for ice cream. My coworkers and I have even done ice cream runs in the middle of winter to this place.

TLDR: the place to go for ice cream; open late too!

  1. I was just there a few days ago. It seems like the quality has gone down since I have last been (IMO). The flavours are not as strong anymore. I tried 4 flavours (which I tried previously) and all of them were weaker now. The ice cream ends up being more creamy and milky. I don’t know if they changed this because people like the flavours more subtle or to save money on spices and flavouring. …or maybe there was a bad batch?
