Our last stop of the evening was for some plant-based ice cream at Frankie & Jo’s. They have two other location (Capital Hill and University Village).
We dropped in on a busy Friday evening (around 8:30pm). It smelled heavenly inside with fresh waffle cones being made. Nice that you can sample a few flavours.
They had a total of 13 flavours available (10 everyday and 3 seasonal).
Scoops are pricey; $5.00 USD (mini), $7.50 USD (standard) and $9.50 USD (large).
Pints are $14.00 to $15.00 USD.
Their maple vanilla waffle cone ($2.75 USD) are easily the most expensive cones we’ve come across.
Large ($9.50 USD)
For our two scoops, we opted for the love of lemon (lemon curd swirl with lemon shortbread cookie) and California cabin (smoked vanilla and pine with a black pepper cardamom shortbread cookie). The texture was rich and creamy. The California cabin was unique and refreshing; first time having pine and we loved it. The lemon was exactly as described; a lemon square in ice cream format.
It’s pricey at F&J but the quality and flavours are on point.
