From vanilla bean and strawberry to flavours like cereal milk and cardamom, Village Ice Cream never fails to amaze us with their tantalizing flavours that change with the season; but don’t worry, the fan-favourites stay all year round. With in-house made waffle cones and rich, locally-made ice cream available twelve months of the year, what else do you really need?

Returning from a South American motorcycle adventure exhausted and stressed, founder Billy Friley discovered the best pint of ice cream he’d ever tasted on his grandma’s porch. This was enough for him to feel revitalized, deciding to open his very own ice cream shop in Calgary, Alberta. With three locations in Calgary, the last six years have been a whirlwind for the company. Serving up hundreds of handmade cones and creamy, uniquely-flavoured ice cream daily, it’s safe to say that Friley has sure made a name for himself in our city, snagging the Best Ice Cream award in Calgary yet again. Check out their newest flavours here so you’re ready to order when you get to the front of the line.
