Indulge in these incredible shakes from Fun & Shakes (located in Flynn’s Convenience). Their ice cream shops have so many flavour combos to choose from plus classic milkshakes and ice cream!

Coffee shops are the perfect afternoon hangout spot and they’re even better when they also serve gelato. Try the Strawberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Gelato and you won’t be disappointed! (Vegan flavours offered as well)

SUGAH! CONFECTIONARY & ICE CREAM EMPORIUM

Sugah! creates their confections by hand with unique ingredients from Nova Scotia. We recommend trying ‘Moon Mist’ – a classic Nova Scotian ice cream flavour consisting of grape, banana and bubblegum!

This artisan chocolate and confections shop offers the most delicious soft serve in their dairy bar to keep you cool on hot summer days.
