Three words: Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream. Need we say more? Earnest Ice Cream has become a Vancouver staple. From whiskey hazelnut to salted caramel and “not-so plain vanilla”, the unique flavours are endless. Earnest Ice Cream is known for its rich, creamy texture and for its signature homemade batches. Plus, did we mention the delectable ice cream sandwiches? We also love their zero-waste glass jars and commitment to sustainability.

Welcome to milkshake heaven! Few places know how to serve up fully-loaded milkshakes like Craffles in The Lonsdale Quay Market. These milkshakes are almost too pretty to eat but once you get a glimpse there’s no going back! The “Monster Extravagant Chocolate Shake” includes a Nutella frosted cup, topped with Ferrero, Kit Kat, Maltesers, Pop Tart s’mores, toasted marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate and caramel drizzle. We know what we’ll be dreaming about tonight!
