Delicious Little Place

Le Monkey Bar has some amazing ice cream options! I especially love their ice cream cakes when they have them. I had a snickers one for Sugar Rush one year that was incredible. I don't get out often but always a treat when I do!

Not good anymore 😞

I LOVED this place in the summers of 2018 and 2019, but since they changed their management (or operations? Whoever's actually doing the prep and service) this year, 2020, it's been a bust. Very disappointing! The shakes went from creamy and amazing last year to undersweetened and not very good this year. No more creaminess, kind of... sour and thin? And that whip on top - tasted like the inside of a metal can. Yuck. To add injury to insult, I had a massive stomach ache afterwards, of the variety I get when I've been "glutened." I suspect despite the fact that I asked specifically for a gf option, machinery wasn't cleaned between my friends' birthday cake shakes (which contain gluten) and my strawberry shake (advertised as gf). This never happened in previous years. I'm so sad about this, I can't even tell you. Unless they switch back to running things themselves, I'm staying away!

Pros: Vegan

Cons: Poor management, No longer tasty

From amazing to meh

I have changed my review since my original post as they changed a lot from one season to the next. From my understanding the business is ran by the same people but the crepe cart nextdoor makes up the staff now.
Anyway, compared to last year the shake was much smaller and not very rich at all (probably way more banana and less coconut milk) making for a super meh experience. Also barely any of the pretty bad tasting whip was found on the shakes. Hopefully things change back...

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Quality deteriorated greatly , Poor value

A vegan dessert oasis!

My first ever stop at this cute kiosk on the Provencher Bridge/Esplanade Riel - a vegan dessert oasis! I had their Classic ice cream sandwich with chocolate chip quinoa cookies stuffed with vanilla nice cream and mini chocolate chips. Scrumptious! Next time I’ll try the peanut butter ice cream sandwich... or the date snickers.

Pros: Fresh takes on whole-plant-based desserts, Good prices-and they cater!, Amazing location near Forks/Human Rights Museum

Cons: Closed in cool/cold or rainy weather
