I thought I should let everyone know that Village Ice Cream is open in Calgary and their ice cream is amazing. Village Ice Cream is located in the East Village at 431 10 Avenue SE. The company was started by Billy Friley late last year and this man could not be more passionate about ice cream (and tacos)! Billy is using old school recipes with extremely high quality, organic ingredients. I used some of his Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream at last weekend’s event and I set up a little ice cream bar with fruit, candied nuts, waffle cone pieces and coconut shreds. Despite the weather outside being freezing, almost everyone who was at the event (100 people) had this ice cream and loved it. One young fellow even came back 5 times!
Village is currently in the process of opening an ice cream shop in the front of the production facility at the above address. For now, stop by on Saturday afternoons to purchase $8 pints. Also check out www.villageicecream.com to see the other amazing flavours Billy is whipping up.
