Muki does indeed have excellent ice cream. However, people are really interested in feeling good after their ice cream and in not feeling ripped off. The prices could be a bit lower so that the experience is excellent!

While walking towards the river in Old Montreal, I saw the Xavier Artisan Cafe so I stopped in for brunch. I had a grilled chicken and avocado and a coffee for brunch, which was quite good. I couldn't resist having some of the hazelnut ice cream after sampling some of the flavours. It was excellent:)
A cute little cafe with great service and good food and serving delicious ice cream.

Our attention was drawn to Xavier Artisan cafe initially. And it wasn't until we entered we found it was a joint venture with Muki ice cream.
The cafe is all home cooked cakes and goods.they also make their own bread. The ambience was very pleasant. Teas, coffee and home made lemonade available. The lemonade was very nice.
Sampled the very nice ice cream, which is also sold in the shop.
The young lady serving was very polite and extremely helpful.
The cafe is quirky and it was nice to sit and relax.
Only downside... Paper cups for hot drinks, proper cups would have been nice.
In all very nice.

I go to LOTS of ice cream stores, and this product was good. Creamy, great texture, and wonderful flavor. The help is awesome, patient, and glad to help and strike up a conversation. The building is even cool. The setting can't be beat; along the waterfront,allowing us to walk the street, take in an open air market, and explore.
Many a time I have thrown away an ice cream. Not here! Good to the last drop. They even roll a good cone.
