La Casa Gelato

Ice Cream in Commercial Drive

If you've been on your feet all day exploring the city, it may be time to cool down with an ice-cold treat. A visit to Vancouver's fave traditional ice-cream joint should hit the spot, although you'll likely get brain-freeze trying to choose from the bewildering kaleidoscope of gelato, sorbetto and frozen yoghurt flavors (238 at last count).

Staffers are more than happy to let you taste your many options here. And there are plenty of vegan, gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free choices. Keep in mind that credit cards are not accepted.
