Oakville Ice Cream – La Dolce Vita

This place has great ice cream. It’s close to the original old part of Oakville near the lake on Lakeshore Rd W. We had the great fortune to go during a work day when it was quiet. As you can see from the photos, there are a ton of flavours and many not typical, like Sicilian Pistachio. However, you could tell by how the place is arranged, it’s rigged up for line ups.

For fresh foods, it was suggested the Sorauren Farmers’ Market could provide what we need. This market is tucked in the Roncesvalles/Parkdale neighbourhood and is open even on holiday Mondays, which worked out well for us.

Never in my life have I seen such an impressive collection […]
