Plenty of options!

Glad to see there was more than one vegan option! Both the nice cream and sorbets are amazing, my personal favorite being the lemon-basil sorbet.

Pros: Lots of options, Rotation in flavors

Cons: A little bit of wait

Home made never tasted better

Finding vegan ice cream is hard enough, and finding a place that makes healthy, home made, vegan choices is a real gem. They always have at least 4 vegan choices. The store has seating inside and out, and you can walk along the Lachine canal just across the street.

Pros: VEGAN!, Home made, Tasty

A Wonderful Experience!

I always love my experience when I visit this ice cream shop. There is a wide variety of flavours to chose from, so there is always something new to try! If you are not sure what flavour to take, they are happy to let you taste them before. My personal favourites are the 70% chocolate sorbet and the coco mango vegan gelato. The staff is very welcoming, and there are great decorations to suit the shop's boat theme. There can sometimes be line ups during the summer, but these homemade gelato and sorbets are worth the wait!

Delicious wide variety!

This little shop is an ice cream lover's dream! This place can really satisfy anybody with their wide variety of both homemade sorbets and vegan gelatos. You can really try something different like their black sesame and cashew gelato or keep it simple with a dark chocolate sorbet. My personal favorite is the coco mango gelato, it just screams summer! And if you do not like coconut, there's option in contrary to other places where they do not use alternatives like almond or oat milk. Would totally recommend this place to anybody!

Pros: Delicious gelatos and sorbets, Wide variety, Beautiful location

Cons: Not downtown

Top Quality home made gelato

What I like most about Quai des glaces is that I can find flavors that you don't find everywhere : you can see at a glance that they make there own gelatos. As for the vegan options, they adapt the base to the flavor : for an example, they use coconut cream in the Coco Mango gelato, they use almond milk in the Almond Butter gelato, etc... (so for an example you don't have a weird coconut taste in a flavor not related to coconut)! The sorbets are all vegan too and made with full tasty fruits, often mixed with herbs such as : pineaple with mint, lime-lemon-cilantro, and strawberry and basil... It's my favorite icecream spot in Montréal. It is not downtonw but worth the trip, because the location is just great : in Old Lachine, at the canal Lachine, facing the St. Lawrence River... Nice bicycle goal because local right in front of the Canal de Lachine path :)

Pros: A lot of homemade flavors, Very tasty gelatos and sorbets, Beautiful location by the river

Cons: Big line ups during the week-ends, A little bit far from downtown Montréal (15 min)

A personal favourite!

I absolutely enjoyed this ice cream shop! They have different flavours of vegan ice cream such as coco mango, chocolate & banana, almond & chocolate, and more! The matcha coco flavour was really good and refreshing!
I also tasted their sorbets which are also really nice.

Original flavors!

At Quai des glaces, I enjoy a wide variety of vegan gelatos and sorbets. I really like the chocolate 70% sorbet (it tastes like a chocolate mousse) and the coco-mango gelato (it tastes like a tropical drink)! There offer very original and unique flavors, such as Black Sesame ! The sorbets are so fresh : my favorite is pineaple and mint. The staff is always welcoming and the location, at the end of the canal Lachine, is very nice. They also offer a vegan chocolate dip!

Pros: Wide variety of flavors, Nice decoration!, Welcoming staff

Cons: Small place, Expect line ups
