Not only is July National Ice Cream month, July 15th is National Ice Cream Day! To celebrate this special day, we have a ONE DAY promotion: you can get one scoop and your second scoop free - applicable to any of our flavours at our Ambleside store. It's the perfect place to get your ice cream before hitting up the beach this sunny weekend! While we're on the topic of ice cream, allow us to feed your curiosity and tell you a little more about our newly introduce ice cream bar at our West Vancouver location. 
Meinhardt Ice Cream West Vancouver National Ice Cream Day

Our ice cream is all fresh, locally made with natural ingredients. There are no preservatives or artificial colours used.  Ice cream bases all contain cream, milk, sugar, and egg yolks; Fruit sorbets are purely fruit and sugars. Our ice-cream counter has 7 signature Meinhardt flavours and 5 rotating seasonal selections. Our team got together to come up with all these flavours by ourselves and partnered up with the one and only talented Eleanor Chow of Cadeaux Bakery to bring the flavours to life! The following flavours are available at our Ambleside location this summer:

Seasonal Flavours
