Ask any many-generation Calgarian – they probably begged their parents to go to My Favourite Ice Cream Shoppe at some point in their life. Nestled into a little strip mall near Marda Loop in Calgary's Southwest, My Favourite Ice Cream Shoppe is the go-to ice cream joint in the city, featuring such classic flavors as Coffee and Cream, Our Best Strawberry, and Rich Rocky Road (the more adventurous may be inclined to try Cherry Custard, Deep Dish Apple, or Moose Tracks). Don't be alarmed if the lineup is out the door, waiting only makes the ice cream taste better. Arcade games from the '80s, an ancient looking horsey ride, and the pointy white confectioners hats on the staff round out this trip into Calgary's delicious past.
