Soft Peaks - organic soft serve in Gastown

NoMoreSnuggles | Jan 18, 201512:44 AM

Hi ho. Decided to pop into the soft opening of Soft Peaks last night. The concept is organic soft serve (plain) available with a few toppings. I tried the very appealing North Pole Breakfast which was topped with cornflakes and a drizzle of honey. They also had one with chocolate sauce and Tim Tam bits, another with pink salt and chocolate caramel, a multigrain powder and honey and others.

The ice cream itself had really lovely thick, smooth texture and a pure milk flavour that was not sweet. And there isn't anyone else in town doing an upscale soft serve so that's a plus. I have to admit to occasionally craving a DQ and hating myself the minute it's weirdly petroleum finish sinks in so I am glad it's there.

That said, I found their pricing a bit aggressive. A small plain cup is $4; my large cup with a sprinkle of cornflakes and honey (pictured) was I think $6. For cornflakes and about 2 teaspoons of honey. There's a $0.50 up charge for what looks like a totally run of the mill wafer cone. I also spotted bottled chocolate sauce so I don't think they do anything but the ice cream in house. Price wise, that puts them in the same arena as Bella whose product generally has a lot more going on than milk and sugar.
