Nothing says summer like ice cream on a hot day, so we’ve rounded up some of the best local spots to grab a scoop (or a swirl) in the Greater Edmonton Area this summer. 

Made By Marcus

(Brewery District & Whyte Avenue) 

Made by Marcus promises honest ingredients, innovative flavours and a superior experience. Originating in Calgary before expanding to Edmonton, Made by Marcus experiments with uncommon flavour profiles using locally sourced ingredients to create premium ice cream featuring some of the wildest flavour combinations. Each batch is built from scratch with dairy from grass-fed cows and real ingredients produced by farmers, roasters, distillers and artisans they know and trust. It’s no wonder people line up for their ice cream. 

Right now, you can try flavours like Fried Chicken & Waffles and Dill Pickle Peanut Butter, or something more traditional like the Jammy Strawberry Rhubarb, Dutchess Earl Grey & Raspberry or their Double Cookies & Cream. They offer Seasonal, Gluten Free & Vegan options by the scoop or in a pint, as well as Ice cream cakes and bars. They even offer delivery in Calgary, Airdrie, Edmonton, Sherwood Park, and St. Albert. 

Die-hard fans can subscribe to The Pint Club, which includes all four seasonal pints *before* they launch in-store, so you'll be the first to sample their newest creations! Plus, receive an additional surprise exclusive to subscribers (i.e. swag, toppings, etc.).

Kind Ice Cream

(Ritchie & Highlands)

Kind Ice Cream specializes in small-batch ice cream handcrafted in Edmonton using exceptional ingredients with a focus on sustainability. Did you know all of their to-go cups, spoons and napkins are compostable, and they offer washable tasting spoons and eat-in bowls? 

“It’s about more than delicious ice cream. It’s about bringing people together and serving up joy.” 

Their ice cream is chef-driven, thoughtfully crafted and made from exceptional ingredients right here in Edmonton. They focus on taking classic ice cream flavours and turning up the dial on quality to create unbelievably delicious scoops. Their current rotation features Ice Cream Truck themed flavours; choose from Drumstick, Creamsicle and Cherry Slush Sorbet (vegan) or one of their Always Flavours like Birthday Cake or Lemon & Jammy Raspberry (also vegan).  

Twice Cream


Twice Creams co-owners and best friends Romeo and Lilly pull inspiration from their diverse family backgrounds and years of travel experience to bring a wider, bolder menu of ice cream flavours to Edmonton. But don’t worry; they don’t leave out the classic flavours your love of ice cream is founded upon. When you visit their Westmount shop, you can expect to find handmade, from scratch, small-batch ice cream made using only the best ingredients, sourced as locally as possible. 

“It’s about more than just delicious, artisanal ice cream—it’s about creating lasting memories around food and shared experiences.”

Choose from their current rotating flavours, Pridescream: Candied Fennel Passionfruit and Maple Salted Butternut, only available for a limited time and their Forever flavours, classic staples like Bourban Vanilla and Michel Cluizel Chocolate, which are available year-round. They also have vegan options made using cashew milk and coconut milk. 


(Whyte Avenue)

Drizzle is a locally owned and operated soft serve ice cream shop located just off Whyte Avenue, with ample parking out front. They offer curated premium sundaes, 12 different flavours of Belgian chocolate dips, house-baked Belgian waffles, milkshakes, and soft serve, including vegan options, to satisfy any sweet tooth.


(Whyte Avenue)

Yelo’d is the place to go when you want a cold treat or just something sweet and unique. Owners Jason and Ailynn share what they know and love; bring Filipino and Asian-inspired deserts to Edmonton’s food scene. There is so much to choose from with Classic, Luxe, Vegan and Secret & Seasonal ice cream flavours. In addition to soft serve and hard ice cream in a cup or a cone, they also have many other menu items, including Toasted Marshmallows, Champorado (brown rice pudding with ice cream on top), Tustado, Ice Cream Sandwiches, Affogato & more! 

“Yelo’d (n): A Tagalog (Filipino) word meaning ice. Add the “d” and you get a play on a verb, iced. Ice for the ice cream, and iced for the iced cakes and sweets offered at Yelo’d.”

Miller Ice Cream 

(Fort Saskatchewan)

Millers is a family-owned business serving ice cream in downtown Fort Saskatchewan every day from May to September. Their menu includes 40 premium Foothills Creamery hard ice cream flavours, milkshakes, sundaes, banana splits, floats, mini donuts & more! 

If you’re heading down during a farmers market or holiday, get ready to line up around the building - it’s a popular spot for a reason! 

Ice Cream Shack 

(Sherwood Park)

 This Sherwood Park summer Ice Cream Shack features 55 Flavors of Foothills Creamery ice cream served in your choice of waffle cone, sugar cone or a cup - or mix it up and try their other refreshing beverages, including Milkshakes, Floats and Pop.

The Whole Scoop 

(Spruce Grove)

Founded by Cameron and Kirsten Schriever in 2017, The Whole Scoop started as a spot for families to enjoy ice cream in Spruce Grove. They’ve since expanded into the destination for family fun, with three different locations across the Edmonton area and an original mini-golf & an amusement park at their flagship location in Spruce Grove. 

If you’re looking for a place to recreate nostalgic memories, this is a must on your summer bucket list. The Spruce Grove amusement park includes an 18-hole mini golf course with many more fun attractions to come! With over 35 flavours, there should be something for everyone.

DRIZZLE is great. They use REAL cream, not the fake concoctions that some other places use.
You can taste the cream and the ice cream isn't crazy sweet with way too much sugar like some other places. Just right. And delicious.
