Family afternoon with banana split,sundaes,ice cream cones and cake selection.Add ingredients to milk shake to personalize the flavour.Summer time enjoy swing set and sitting at picnic table until kids tired of running.Just as exciting when my parents took us for ice cream cone to cool us down after busy play day.No Air conditioner at home.

I've been coming here ever since I was a child and have very found memories of summer and delicious ice cream. My family and I favour this place because of its location, the friendly service, and the scrumptious homemade ice cream they serve. We come here quite frequently in the summer and they always seem to satisfy. They have so... More

It's like a trip back into another era.Excellent cones ;shakes and sodas in an array of flavours using real ice dream and made before your eyes.Well worth the wait as the line ups can be long particularly on a hot summer day; but worth the wait. I particularly like the malted milk shakes... More

Wasn't thrilled with the line, but the ice cream and shake was top notch....YUMMY. Met a local while waiting in line. Very friendly and very pro tourist too. I'll go back if we visit the area!

It is a bit of a drive.. outside the hustle and bustle. But well worth it! The ice cream flavors and freshness of the ingredients make this place really unique! for decades, families have been going here to enjoy the ice cream, and the swings. Surrounded by fields.. a nice outing.

We love Avondale ice cream. My kids say it's their favorite of anywhere we've traveled to and they have had quite a bit. We were disappointed when we went yesterday and it's closed until March. Trip Advisor please update this on your website. We will be back this Summer for the best ice cream

An institution in Niagara. Real country experience- out of the way drive in the middle of nowhere. Lots of parking. Line-ups on hot summer weekends. Ice cream is tasty but expensive. Eat outside at picnic area with the fresh aroma of cow manure!

there are plenty of choices with the favs changing weekly. look for seasonal fruit ice cream-like peach -- fab! sundaes look great will try one next time. There were a group of seniors out for a visit and they ordered every sundae under the sun! Based on their reaction, they were a very happy group!

No trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake is complete for me without a visit to the Avondale Dairy. This time I chose a dip of coffee heath bar with a dip of kalua fudge. They weigh your ice cream and charge you by its weight. They also have specialities -- banana splits, sundaes, etc. Warning: the sign says that they close for the... More
