The Cone

Although cooler weather is now kicking in, summer is still not over! There is still time to enjoy the sunshine, relax, and treat yourself with a classic summer treat: soft serve ice cream. Edmonton's newest ice cream shop offers this crowd favourite, served from a giant ice cream cone complete with a cherry on top. Say hello to The Cone!

The Cone.

The Cone is located in the empty lot north of Wild Earth Bakery, along 99 Street and 90 Avenue. It's definitely not hard to miss! It is owned and operated by the Kleininger sisters, Sheridan and Shelby. Check out this Edmonton Journal article for more info about The Cone.

Picnic tables.

Three picnic tables decorated with glass jars of flowers (I snapped this picture before the flowers were placed) make for a lovely setting if you visit The Cone with family or a group of friends. 

Soft serve ice cream flavours.

So many flavours available - it was hard to choose! We learned that we could mix different flavours together to create our own unique flavour. The ice cream is served in either a cone or cup for $3.50, with stir ins available for an extra 50 cents each.

CJ wanted something fruity and went for the Pina Colada. The pineapple and coconut reminded him of hot summer days which was much needed since it suddenly started raining when we visited! I decided to mix cheesecake and butter pecan together and the combination was delicious and not too sweet. I would say that the flavours I tried were more subtle (flavours weren't too pronounced) but it was still delightful.

I would love to visit The Cone again to try more ice cream flavours! The Cone is open Tuesday-Sunday from 1:00 PM to 9:30 PM unless it is raining. I think it is the perfect place to check out on a warm summer day. Follow The Cone on Instagram (@thecone_yeg), Twitter (@TheCone_yeg), and like their Facebook page
