Earnest Ice Cream recently opened a shop on Fraser Street in Vancouver.I’ve always adored their ice cream since they used to deliver the jars to my workplace. Once you have their salted caramel, you can’t go back to other ice cream places.
Depending on what time you arrive, there can be long lines, but you don’t wait too long. Near the big arrow in the back of the restaurant, you can see the pint size jars available. Those flavours aren’t the same as what you can get for the ice cream scoops.
The menu is quite simple and you can see the ice cream available for the day. The popular flavours tend to run out fast. My personal favourites are Salted Caramel, Oatmeal Brown Sugar, Peanut butter chocolate chip, and strawberry basil.
Clearly, I’ve bought a lot of pints before. So, it’s quite nice to finally have then open a shop and not have limited flavours to try.
A scoop of London Fog in a waffle cone ($5) was delicious! You can definitely taste the Earl Grey tea. It was so good that the next day, my sister had to order a pint for the fridge.
Affogato ($6) with a scoop of Tahitian Vanilla Ice cream. It tasted good, but my other friend had hers with whiskey hazelnut ice cream. The espresso is made with Matchstick Coffee. It has a nice strong bold taste that pairs well with the ice cream.
There’s a few tables inside, and some people like to sit on the benches outside. The turnover of the tables are quite quick, so you will have to have good timing to grab a table.
Overall, the ice cream is pretty good, but it is quite expensive. It’s not a place you can regularly go to or else you’ll be broke. It’s a nice treat on a hot day.
