5 Trendy Ice Cream Shops to Try This Summer

Remember when ice cream only came in 2 flavours. Well, times have evolved and so have we. The most classic summer activity remains grabbing ice cream and enjoying the beautiful weather with family and friends.

Here are the best stops you should be making.

Gastronomia Roberto

2227 Rue Bélanger, Montréal, QC H2G 1C4

You cannot go wrong with Gastronomia Roberto, where they import their ingredients straight from Italy, open since 1982. Who says you have to travel for eight hours to enjoy some fresh gelato? Alongside, they also have a traditional Italian cuisine.

So many flavors 😮/ Autant saveurs 😮
