The best gelatos in Montreal

This all-Italian frozen dessert is gaining more and more followers, and offers an alternative to ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet. We have more and more counters offering it. Here are some places where you can satisfy your craving for sweet refreshment in Montreal.

Paysanne Gelato

202-705 rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H3B 4G5

This small chain has shops in Quebec City, Montreal (Eaton Centre, Galeries d'Anjou) and the outskirts of Montreal. As the name may indicate, you can find tons of gelatos with combined or single flavors (hazelnut, mint and dark chocolate, etc.). But that's not all! Also, try the gelato bar and the gelato cake (including Choco Brownies). Are you hungry?

F C O De Fiumicino

451, av Viger O, Montréal, QC H2Z 1G6

Sure, it is a pizzeria ... but also a gelateria. It's all possible temptations in one place. This should be illegal. But it's not, so enjoy it! As for gelato, you'll find it at this West Viger Street establishment. Ricotta cheese and cinnamon? Ferrero Rocher chocolate? Pistachio? Let yourself go. You can even buy it by the liter, to be sure not to miss out.

Gastronomia Roberto

2221 Rue Bélanger, Montréal, QC H2G 1C5

Taste authentic Italy. It's not us telling you this, it's Roberto, and we're definitely prepared to believe him. Located on Belanger Street East, Roberto Gastronomia offers complete meals that one ends with an "authentic" gelato, nothing less.


7070 av Henri Julien, Montréal, QC H2S 2S3

How can you pass up this artisanal ice cream that can be found at Jean-Talon Market, and on the Promenade Fleury (and in the Quartier des spectacles, and the Atwater Market)? Sorbets and ice creams are made with, in their words, "quality raw materials." A little Dulce de Leche, anyone? You'll also find macarons and seasonal desserts, like Yule log or home-made Easter eggs.

Les Givrés

2730, rue Masson, Montréal, QC H1Y 1W5

Les Givrés, located on De Castelneau Avenue, are no longer alone! A second shop was recently opened on St-Denis Street. You will find more than thirty flavours of gelato and sorbets in this fabulous artisanal dairy bar which is open all year. Who says that you can only enjoy it when it's hot?


60, av Fairmount O, Montréal, QC H2T 2M2

This small and very popular establishment located on Fairmount Street in the Mile End, offers not only excellent gelato but also sorbets and other sweets. And all without preservatives or artificial flavors. It's no surprise that there is often long lines! And if you have a Twitter account, follow them and you're sure to have a good laugh.
