Where did I eat?
Soft Peaks at 25 Alexander Street in Gastown.
What do they specialize in?
Soft serve ice cream.
What was the vibe?
Bright, cute, and busy.
What did I order?
Left – Honeycomb Peak and Right – Salty Himalayan with maple sauce
- Soft Peaks makes all of their ice cream with organic Avalon milk and the cream flavour really stands out.
- The ice cream is super smooth and not as sweet as regular ice cream, resulting in a very refreshing and surprisingly light feeling dessert.
- The Honey Comb Peak comes topped with a piece of honey comb. I have never eaten an actual honey comb before, but it was delicious and added a good amount of sweetness to the ice cream. It also comes with corn flakes on the bottom, which added some crunchy texture.
- The Salty Himalayan was also really good because I love sweet and salty combinations. The maple sauce was great and not overwhelmingly strong like many maple flavoured things are.
I loved the ice cream at Soft Peaks and would definitely return because soft serve ice cream is so much better than hard ice cream in my books.
