Now that's lunch! Ice cream sandwiches around Vancouver

The modern update of the ice cream sandwich is much more appetizing than the rectangle of bland vanilla ice cream between chocolate wafers we remember as kids. These days there are creative and artisanal sandwiches popping up all over Vancouver. This is where you’ll find the coolest ice cream sandwiches around town.

Beta5 Chocolates

413 Industrial Ave, Vancouver, BC V6A 2P8

The ice cream sandwich is a summer-only treat at this award-winning, contemporary chocolate and pastry shop. The sandwiches are available in fun flavour combinations, but the mint chocolate chip is always a hit. If it doesn’t fill you up, try their to-die-for cream puffs as a side dessert.

Earnest Ice Cream

3992 Fraser St, Vancouver, BC V5V 4E4

This little business is already becoming legendary for their homemade ice cream. The only way to improve it would be to sandwich the creamy confection between two macarons for the best dessert in Mount Pleasant. While you’re there, get a take-home pint, packaged in returnable and reusable glass jars.

Butter Baked Goods Ltd

4907 MacKenzie St, Vancouver, BC V6N 1G8

Enjoy a seasonal dessert at this little bakery that’s famous for their sweet confections. As would be expected, you’ll find baked-goods-inspired flavoured ice cream, like Apple Pie Crumble. You can satisfy your sweet tooth with ice cream by the scoop or on top of pie, but why do that when you can get it in the form of a sandwich?

The Gluten Free Epicurean

633 E 15th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5T 2R6

The sweet-loving, gluten-free foodie doesn’t have to miss out on the trend — The Gluten Free Epicurean makes a worthy contribution with rich ice cream squished between their homemade cookies. Like everything else at the bakery, the cookies are made with the highest quality ingredients and sustainable organic products. And of course are gluten free.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
