Rain or Shine Ice Cream: Scoop after Scoop

Diana Chan May 12, 2014 Dessert, Kitsilano, Three Beakers


Who says ice cream is only for sunny days. With 365 days of the year, it mostly rains in Vancouver but ice cream is so delicious, you can have it any time of the year. There’s a new shop called Rain or Shine Ice Cream close to West 4th and Burrard.

A lot of people compare this place to Earnest Ice Cream.


They try to use the best ingredients possible in their menu. Fresh, natural and sustainable ingredients are used and you can see it being reflected on their menu.


The Keepers sections are flavours that are kept year round. Seasonal flings are the ones with ingredients that are currently in season.

The Keepers:

  • Chocolate
  • Vanilla
  • Salted Caramel
  • Coffee Toffee
  • London Fog
  • Honey Lavendar
  • Blueberry Balsamic
  • Peanut Butter
  • Coconut Chocolate Chunk
  • Cracked Mint

Seasonal Flings:

  • Spiced Honey Hazelnut
  • BrownButter Snickerdoodle
  • Oatmeal praline Rum Rasin
  • Ginger Coconut
  • Power St White IPA

On Tuesday, they sell ice cream tacos. It looks pretty awesome. But, since it was a weekend when we visited, it wasn’t available. They also have sundaes and shakes.


There’s not a lot of seats inside, but you might get lucky. When we came around noon, it wasn’t busy at all. Which is perfect for us cause we then occupied all the seats.


After sampling a few flavours, I really had a clear favourite.

Peanut Butter (1 scoop- $4.50) was so good. I really like peanut butter. The ice cream was smooth but I did find a few ice crystals inside of it.


Overall, the nice place to grab some ice cream on a day that is either rainy or sunny.
