Rooster’s Ice Cream Bar

Rooster’s Ice Cream is not your typical ice cream spot. It almost seems like it’s the complete opposite to the ice cream giants in town (Earnest and Rain or Shine) on purpose; I dig it.

Located in a random spot? Check.
Only one staff member working? Check.

We’ve been a couple times and I have yet to see it busy. A few people pop in but no one ever lingers. Most likely because there’s no seating.

There’s only one standing table along with a window sill to people watch if you stay.

Some cute decor along the walls/shelves.

There’s a sign on the counter stating you can only sample 2 flavours during peak hours.

Pints and ice cream sandwiches (only available during the summer) are right beside.

More cute little ice cream decor.

Menu is short and sweet. Scoops, sundaes, sundaes, ice cream sandwiches and ice cream filled doughtnuts.

There’s usually 10 to 12 flavours; always something unique and interesting.

Avocado honey with vodka, fresh lemon poppyseed and blueberry balsamic swirl!

One visit they only had four flavours that day. All sold out!

Mango raspberry swirl and London fog ($7.00 double)
DSC03798Waffle cone is included and it was better than expected. The ice cream itself tastes a bit denser but still has a creamy satisfying texture. The London fog was fantastic! The mango raspberry was more mango than raspberry but also quite good.

London fog ($5.00 single)
DSC03659We went with the London fog; just as good as the last time.

Dark chocolate and black sesame with honey ($7.00 double)
DSC08176The dark chocolate tasted like a fudgesicle but better. Not too sweet but hefty; it was so heavy it almost fell off the cone! The black sesame was delicious. Not quite like the ones we had in Japan but tasty and flavourful.

I’ll be back for more! Digging the laid back, no frills vibe at Rooster’s.
