Where can I buy/taste your ice cream?
Please visit the Where? page to find out all of your options, including our seasonal retail location, the Ottawa Farmers’ Market, and at local food spots/restaurants.
What are your hours?
Our fall hours 2019 are;
- Thursday & Friday 3 – 7pm
- Saturday: 12 -7pm
Missing us on Sundays? Come by the Lansdowne Farmers Market for a selection of fresh pints, sandwiches and more!
Can I see a full menu? What are your daily offerings?
We are a proud from-scratch-small-batch business. This means that everything is made with the utmost love and care and with top quality local ingredients- most of which are seasonal / also small batch. When they’re gone, it can be hours before we are able to churn out more, or even an entire season before more produce becomes available.
Think of your visit as an exclusive food adventure. New flavours are just a new favourite you haven’t tasted yet.
Why don’t you sell scoops of Ice Cream?
We are not a traditional scoop shop, more of a specialty small batch ice cream counter. We are proud to be the only place in Ontario with a “Little Jem” ice cream machine that produces “New Zealand Style” Soft Serve.
We chose the Little Jem as it allows us to customize our unique flavours in the most natural way, staying in line with the values that has built Pascale’s into what it is. Check our instagram or facebook for daily offerings and exclusive flavours.
Can I get a dipped cone?
You betcha! We are proud to offer our “magic shell” chocolate dips in dark (vegan!) or milk chocolate and peanut butter.
What’s up with your friends?
Pascale’s has always been proud to be a shared kitchen space- in the industry we refer to it as an “incubator”. As such, we love sharing our prep space with our friends Adam Bakes and Mad Faux Cheese. Our friends make up “Pascale’s & Co” and will also have daily offerings at our counter, so make sure you give them a follow too! *put handles in*
Do you have somewhere to sit?
We have a modest partially shaded seating area (custom built for us by our friends at re4rm!) covered in gorgeous blooms in the corner of our parking lot. Come join us and take in the sights of Centretown, and the smells of our neighbour The Red Apron.
I’m vegan/ dairy free. Am I out of luck?
Fear not my friend! We are proud to offer dairy free and vegan options for ice cream, and we frequently team up with fellow Pascale & Co friend Mad Faux Cheese, and source sandwich cookies from Little Jo Berry’s.
I love the environment- will you fill my dish from home?
We love the environment too, which is why we use mostly green packaging for our products. If you’d like us to fill your dish for you, please give us a heads up via email or phone and we’ll be happy to accommodate you.
Anything else I should know?
This is our first season ever open to the public and we’re still learning so we thank you for your patience! As we are a walk up counter, we do not have a public restroom but there is one a half block away at McNabb Community Center.
Also please note that parking can be limited at times, but there is plenty of free parking on Gladstone and Percy Ave. We are excited to see and serve all of you soon.
