Had lunch at the Goose and took the wee ones for a walk down to the ice-cream parlour for dessert. All were HAPPY. The flavour assortment was great, and the cost very reasonable.

Homemade ice cream that tastes like your Gramma made. It was beyond delicious. They have gelato, delicious chocolates and old fashioned candy. If you are in Merrickville you have to go. Actually it's worth the drive to Merrickville just for this store.
