Coming out with a statement like “This is Barrie’s Best Ice Cream Shop“ is liable to get me at the bottom of Kempenfelt Bay in some concrete shoes. I mean, people take their ice cream very seriously, and so they should. But when it comes to getting a little taste of heaven, where should you go? What options do you have and why would you go there? Here is our list of Barrie’s best or the area’s best options when it comes to this icy delight.
If you are preparing to take a jaunt to get your ice cream fix, we have a few options for you. Visit Marble Slab Creamery at Big Bay Point Road and Yonge Street or Baskin Robbins on Barrie View Drive. We also suggest any of the shops in the area’s capital of ice cream, Thornton Ontario.
What does this mean for you? More centrally located or looking to grab a scoop or two and walk the waterfront? Check out the ever-popular Kawartha Dairy Store on Anne Street near Dunlop. This place is always busy so be mindful of what time of day you go. Another classic ice cream establishment is the Dairy Queen on Bradford Street. There is often a line, but they are fast and will have you on your way in no time. Lastly, if you want to try a unique ice cream experience, you should check out Swirleez by the Lakeshore. It faces the water and has a patio. Here you self serve your frozen yogurt and then add from the toppings buffet which is just about everything you could think of to put on a frozen treat and more.
Lastly, if you are in the East End we suggest you stop into Burger Royal for an old fashioned Milk Shake! East End Variety is where you can find a classic ice cream sandwich.
