500 Flavors of Ice Cream, Gelato and Sorbet in Vancouver


vancouver la casa gelato hundreds of wacky flavorsMy time in Vancouver, BC recently led me to one of my favorite things: a massive ice cream shop! It’s called La Casa Gelato and they experiment with flavors like you’ve never seen. They’ve been in business here for 32 years. With a whopping 518 flavors of ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt and sorbet, they are serving 218 flavors at any given time. By all means, sample away! (And I did!)

Some of the most unusual ice cream flavors they serve are:
  • Curry
  • Chocolate Jack Daniels
  • Berry and Jalapeno
  • Curry
  • Pear Gorgonzola and Blue Cheese
  • Chocolate Basil
  • Peach Plum Jasmine
  • Lemon Tarragon Sorbet
  • Lavender
  • Fig and Almond
  • Aloe Vera
  • Cheddar and Apple

I will admit some of their unusual flavors are not to everyone’s taste, and some are more successful than others… that’s part of the fun of coming here. Trying new things! Some of my favorites were actually traditional flavors like pistachio, coffee and cookies n cream.

This shop has inspired me to try to make my own sorbet – Lemon Basil. I’ll let you know how it goes!

La Casa Gelato is off the beaten path, but it isn’t far from Vancouver’s Chinatown and the city bus #22 runs right in front of their shop. They are open 11am to 11pm, 7 days a week. Address is 1033 Venables St, Vancouver, BC. La Casa Gelato on Yelp
