Posted May 15, 2022by Kristene Smith

Spring & Summer days call for cool treats….like ice cream! Nothing beats an ice cream on a hot summer day and if you’re like us, you can enjoy it morning, noon or night. There are some great places for ice cream in #BurlON and we wanted to share the insider tips with you (disclosure: some taste testing was involved in order to fully give the best tips).  Locations are in no particular order.

Offering real soft ice cream dipped in your choice of flavour; dark chocolate, salted caramel and Oreo to name a few. With additional toppings like Fruit Loops and sprinkles!

This is a Burlington staple. We love visiting Easterbrooks located across from the Royal Botanical Gardens.  They offer real ice cream as well as milkshakes and good old fashioned floats.
