Stay cool this summer with a frozen treat from a new ice cream shop, cafe or coffee shop. Here are a few new Calgary spots that have opened recently and offer ice cream, soft serve, shaved ice and more.


Good News

Look for this new coffee shop located in a red house in Inglewood. Inside, you can order a coffee and try the latest feature soft serve flavour, which has most recently been peach pie or yuzu blueberry. You can also get a float or an affogato.

This new eatery specializes in churros, which you can enjoy with ice cream a few different ways. The chulato is essentially an ice cream sandwich with a scoop of Noto gelato between two cinnamon-sugar churros. There are also five flavours of chilled churros, which feature two loop churros with vanilla soft serve and toppings like sweet milk drizzle or brownie chunks. The cafe also has several other churro creations, including sweet and savoury “churro tacos,” churro sandwiches and a variety of drinks.

This local ice cream company just celebrated the grand opening of its first storefront at the beginning of August. Swing by the Mount Pleasant shop to try flavours like the White Rabbit candy-inspired White Bunny, Viet coffee, Dunkaroos, sea salt Skor, pandan and more on the patio that Milk shares with John’s Breakfast & Lunch.

This Japanese bakery, which just opened its first Calgary location, is best known for its cheese tarts, but guests are already raving about the soft serve here as well. Try the strawberry or black sesame flavours either on their own or together in a swirl.
