I stopped to put air in my bike tires at MEC and ended up having some work done. To while aeway the time I crossed the street to Fan Tan alley to browse the always charming shops. I kept seeing people with delicious looking waffle...cones, and when I found the source, Kid Sister Ice Cream, I went in to see the operation. Sweet little ice cream stand on Canada's narrowest street, making delicious home-made ice cream. I asked if there was anything dairy free and was handled a sample of an outrageous kiwi/blackberry/coconut flavour. I was hooked. Evene tho I had avoided ice cream for several years, I succumbed to the pleasure and enjoyed every lick. A few weeks later when visitors were in town and I toured them throuh the delightful Fan Tan alley, of course we had to stop... this time the dairy free was a mango sorbet... again outrageous. Terribly habit forming - beware!More

Great little ice cream shop in the middle of Fan Tan Alley. You can smell the delicious hand made waffle cones as you walk down the alley and it draws you in! The small batch ice cream is made from local ingredients and the fruit...flavors are based on the seasonal availability. My favorite, the salted caramel was creamy and rich and so delicious!More

Walk down this magical alley and you’ll swear you’ve stepped into the world of magic and wizards. This alley boasts some really unique kitschy shops and this ice cream shop was no exception. You can see the team making waffle cones fresh in front of...your eyes. Choose from an array of cool flavours. I couldn’t say no to the double chocolate made with cream cheese. The ice cream was amazing. I’ll definitely be back.More

Excellent "home made" ice cream. We overheard a tour guide recommending this place, so gave it a try. Superb ice cream.

Hidden in the middle of Fan Tan Alley, this is a great little place to get some local ice cream. Decent selection of flavors, reasonable prices for artisan ice cream.

If you like ice cream, the visit to Victoria is worth it JUST for a few balls from this place! It’s also in Fan Tan Alley (just a side - it’s not worth visiting the alley unless you want to come here for ice cream)...so kill 2 birds with one stone (though I would also like to point out that NO animals were injured during the writing of this review).More

Our Vancouver Island vacation is fast becoming an ice cream tasting tour! We visited Kid Sister Ice Cream while exploring China Town and Fan Tan Alley. They had a good selection of flavours and gave very generous portions. They make their own waffle cones and...they were almost as good as the ice cream! Definitely worth a stop while exploring Victoria on a hot day!More

In Victoria this place is my favorite because have different flavors, but sometimes my favorite (double chocolate) finish early due to great demand.

If you're visiting Victoria you must head over to Fan Tan Alley and try the ice cream here. Forget all the other great ice cream you've ever had. You will be amazed how incredible their ice cream is. If you like sesame be sure to...order the black sesame. Can't wait to go back.More

Amazing treat! We went on a whim and what a great surprise. Very tasty even with the vegan option. I had the strawberry coconut lime...so refreshing. Waffle cone was perfect.
