Highly recommend you splurge on this, So worth it!! We got the monthly subscription...where they delivery right to your door - what could be better. We also got some at Vita Health Store on McPhillips St.More

When I walked into this little ice cream shop the first thing I noticed was that it was spotless. The ice cream was well displayed, with lots of variety. But if you are a vanilla fan, this the place to go for "Plain Jane". The...BEST ice cream I ever had. It has a super creamy texture that is unlike any other ice cream. I recommend this little shop to everyone I know. Go. You won't be disappointed. They also use glass jars that can be returned for $1.00 off your next purchase. Great idea!More

Chaeban has the best ice cream in the city. I've had nearly every flavour on their regular menu, as well as some of the seasonal flavours. I have never been disappointed! Every time I try different ice cream I genuinely wish I was having Chaeban...instead. It's expensive and definitely a luxurious treat, but always worth it. The shop itself is very clean and bright. It's great for a date or a hangout with friends. There's plenty of seating too, especially if you come when it's quiet. The staff are super friendly! They give out giant scoops and really fill in your cone. Zainab knows my order at this point and she's always happy to see me when I come in. Very kind! I'm always happy to come to Chaeban. I recommend it for everyone who wants to try new ice cream. I'm excited to come again!More

Absolutely the best ice cream in the city. Super clean. Super friendly. A great atmosphere. And the flavours are amazing. Joseph’s ice cream has a different texture to it than most others I have tried. There is more substance. Chocolate and almond are my two...favourites.More

I loved the variety of traditional and non-traditional flavors. It is fantastic that the owners have blended their cultural ingredients into ice cream. I can't remember the name of the ice cream but it had dates in it and tasted like a Christmas Cookie. It...was so good. Definitely worth stopping for dessert. Staff was very friendly and kind.More

Favourite ice cream place, different flavours and ingredients, this place has become my place to go for a treat. This coming from someone who was not overly fond of ice cream until I found this place! Favourite flavours are Abir al Sham and Anna Bananutella,...although I have tried and enjoyed many. Glen Coconut is a dairy free/ vegan option I have also enjoyed. You can get a cone or maybe try a flight of 4 different flavours first time. This is not your usual mass produced cheap tasting ice cream, the price reflects this but really no more expensive than local dessert places for that dried out gateaux or desserts, and so much better! The first time I spotted this place there was still snow on the ground and there was a long queue to outside. When I finally went and tried it I understood why it had become so popular with locals and the rest of the city. Recommend.More

I’m not really a sweets person but I never say no to Chaeban Ice Cream. I really love their coffee flavoured ice cream, but I also love trying their other unique flavours. I love that they always have kiosks at events all over town so...I don’t have to drive to their store. I heard that they now also sell in local grocery stores, but I think getting it directly from them is still better.More

My spouse and I drove to the city one day last week based on the information that this place had allergy friendly options. On arrival, it looked good. But then it went downhill. There weren’t options, but one option; and the employee did not know...the product well enough to be able to answer my questions about ingredients. I tried checking the products in the cooler for their list of allergens (a legal requirement in Canada) but they didn’t have one. So in the end, we left without being able to even taste their ice cream - even though we understood that we could and had made a special trip to the city for it. So while I am sure it is as delicious as others say, I don’t know; and I would caution anyone around their claim to have allergen friendly options.More

Friends we are visiting in Winnipeg, our first visit, took us to this ice cream place after a great pizza dinner at around 10 PM on July 2nd, 2019. The expectation was high but the disappointment started as soon as we stepped in - two...of the flavours we were interested in (Salty Carl and Donnie Darcocoa - I love dark chocolate!) were sold out and then the young lady behind the counter said that we couldn't have the four bowl sampler (featured in their TravelAdvisor photo!) even though the customer ahead of us was getting one! Apparently some rule about not serving the sampler after 10 PM and that the other server had forgotten! However, as we were enjoying our ice creams, I got one scoop of Abir Al Sham and Mona Maamoul each, I noticed another coustomer getting the platter! Maybe young Neda didn't like us! ☹️ However, all the flavours we tried, were exceptional! Try this place - great ice cream! Two scoops for the price of one on Tuesdays!More

Anyone finding themselves in the Winnipeg area should give serious thought to visiting Chaeban Ice Cream (390 Osbourne) - premium quality stuff - highly recommend the flight of four flavours, husband, son and I shared three flights, all 12 flavours were exquisite.
