Holman's is the best ice cream in the island. It is better than a certain other famous ice cream shop in PEI, you know the one...named after a large dairy animal. Aside from the delicious ice cream, the sitting area outside is large and beautiful...and perfect for enjoying a treat on a nice day. I can't wait to come back to PEI next time I'm in PEI.More

We finally were able to visit this ice cream shop on Canada day. The service was amazing, the person at the window was very patient when my kiddos couldn’t make up their minds AND it was free sprinkle day! The ice cream was the most...delicious my family has ever had. The kids enjoyed the outdoor seating and it was a really nice way to spend some of our Canada day. We will definitely be making the trip again next summer.More

The best ice cream on PEI, hands down! Milkshakes, ice cream and sundaes, Holman’s is our first choice. We drive over an hour each way often (more often than we’d like to admit!) for their products. You won’t be disappointed!

Holmans Ice Cream Parlor is by fair the best Ice Cream on the island. Bolstered with many different fun and creative flavours as well as classic flavours that change throughout the week. They make delicious waffle cones that are always fresh. My go to is...honeycomb crunch in a waffle cone...unbeatable. The staff is friendly and they do a good job of making you feel welcome. I have never been disappointed with Holmans Ice Cream Parlor and I would strongly recommend this place to anyone and everyone!More

Not only does Holman’s have the tastiest ice cream but a visit to the parlor is an experience in itself. It’s such a warm, inviting place that has friendly staff and beautiful gardens for you to sit and enjoy your ice cream. Really, best place...to get ice cream on the island, and that’s saying something because there’s a lot of ice cream choices. Every visit to the island has to consist of a stop here!More

I could go on and on all day about how great this place is. We go all the time, my kids and I absolutely love it. The whole family does, it's so great. We've tried almost all of the flavors, Our family favorites are definitely...chocolate orange and strawberry sorbet. The staff are always so kind and patient. My kids take about ten years (not really but feels that way when in line) to decide on flavors and the staff are all so patient giving out samples so the kiddos can pick which kind they really want. ALSO The new Belgium chocolate dipped cones are absolutely amazing definitely recommend trying. Highly recommend trying this place if you haven't already. Never had a bad experience, and it always tastes amazing.More

This was my second visit of the summer and I had hoped that Mexican Chocolate would be on the menu. It is hands down my favourite ice cream flavour I’ve ever had, and I’ve tried a lot of ice cream! It’s spiced but not too...spicy and the flavours work with the chocolate seamlessly! Plus the location is fantastic and everything about this place is adorable. Keep up the great work!More
