Rain or Shine

Ice Cream in Fairview & South Granville

Under the gaze of a cone-crowned purple cow on the wall, you may have to queue at this finger-licking ice-cream emporium. But that will give you time to mull the flavors, which range from – on our visit – crushed mint to blueberry balsamic. All are made on-site and served in cups or cones, although perhaps staff will shovel it straight into your mouth if you ask nicely.

Alongside the flavor mainstays, there are always some seasonal additions to the roster, while glutinous milkshakes (Earl Grey lavender recommended) are also available if you still need a few thousand more calories to round-out your day. If you're in Kitsilano, find the original Rain or Shine on W 4th Ave.
