Miss Cold Comfort with ice cream

We make ice cream.

A lot of folks say it’s the best they’ve ever had.

It’s small batch, quality ice cream, born of pure creative force. Curious, seasonally inspired flavours, and  hand-crafted locally in small batches, our ice cream is sure to give you a memorable experience.

Cold Comfort Headquarters (HQ) is located at 1115 North Park Street, right next door to Fernwood Coffee’s Parsonage Cafe, in the same block as Mt. Royal Bagels and Patisserie Daniel.

We don’t just sell ice cream in our shop. We often have some random house-made treats (including cookies, salted butter caramel sauce, and our own “Happy Hour” bar nut mix), as well as a few of our favourite locally made products including groceries (bread from Fol Epi organic bakery, local and imported cheeses, organic milk, cream, eggs and Abeego (re-useable beeswax) food wraps.

Cold Comfort products are also available at 10 locally-minded, quality food establishments here in Victoria! You may find our Ice Cream Pints & our Ice Cream Sandwiches around town.
New flavours are being created weekly. We’ve produced over 340 flavours so far… (check out our flavour archive!)

Quality is imperative.

We are dedicated to making a high-density, quality ice cream. We do our best to avoid any ingredients that have been genetically modified and we use mostly organic ingredients, incorporating local fruits, herbs, and other locally produced items when possible. We use organic cane sugar and sometimes honey or pure maple syrup to sweeten the mix. Our organic eggs, cream, and milk are from Avalon (on the mainland).

We use natural ingredients; we don’t shortcut by using artificial flavours, preservatives, emulsifiers, starches or stabilizers. Our overrun (air content) is remarkably low, which means more dense satisfaction in every mouthful.

You and Dairy don’t get along? We also make a dairy-free version of ice cream. It is essentially a sorbet, and the ingredients are usually not a lot more than coconut milk, organic cane sugar, and sea salt. Simple, rich, creamy, and delicious. You might not notice a difference. Some of our ice cream sandwich cookies are dacquoise (made with almond flour & meringue), so there are many grain-free options.
