Really good ice cream. Good size servings and high quality ice cream. The waffle cones are usually warm and fresh.

A great place to stop before lunch (or maybe after) on a hot summer's day. We went in for small dishes of ice cream, and had to resist the tempting candies & chocolate. A must stop when you are downtown near the market!

We had yummy ice cream as we walked around town. Unfortunately the waffle bowls and cones were stale. Possibly having to do with the humidity, but bad news for our family of three to pay that much and throw the cones/waffle bowls away.

Kilwin's makes a good quality ice cream and has delicious candies. They are generous with their scoops. Perfectly located after a day of shopping or dinner around the market.
