Soft Peaks - Vancouver

Soft Peaks
Organic soft serve

One of the most anticipated ice cream parlors in Vancouver has finally opened its doors to the public! Located in the heart of Gastown - Soft Peaks specializes in organic soft serve ice cream along with premium local toppings. Their milk is from Avalon - a local BC dairy farm, and all their toppings are sourced from local BC suppliers. These two brothers truly believe in supporting local businesses! 

E and I finally got a chance to stop by Soft Peaks for a taste test - Dessert before dinner! 

We tried out some of their most popular items on the menu, which was the "Honeycomb Peak" topped with a piece of fresh honeycomb from the local honey farms in BC. The richness of the soft serve ice cream along with the sweetness of the honeycomb was delicious! Why haven't I ever had real honeycomb before!?!

Next up we tried the "Green Forest" - this soft serve ice cream is topped with a sprinkle of Matcha powder, sweet red beans and condensed milk. 

This version kind of reminded me of a parfait from Chiccos or Mimibuloveme. Again delicious and quite satisfying - all the toppings paired very well together.

The last one we tried was the "Avalanche" twist topped with multi-grain powder and liquid honey.

The liquid honey added a very nice texture to the soft serve ice cream, but if I had to pick my least favourite flavour it would have to be this one.

The Avalanche was very messy to eat because the multi-grain powder was falling off the rim of the cup. Also, it wasn't as exciting to eat as the Honeycomb Peak or the Green Forest. I didn't really like the multi-grain powder, it didn't really add to the flavour of the ice cream and it was messy to eat.

Overall, Soft Peaks is such a cute little ice cream parlor that has a lot of potential! Their menu is still a work in progress and I can't wait to visit again, especially in the Summer time!

What I hope to see in the summer is how they will incorporate fresh seasonal fruits with their organic soft serve ice cream, and possibly a milk shake menu?!?!

Anyways if you have time check them out and grab 
an ice cream before dinner!

Until next time folks.
