Coffee & Treats in Keswick

Select Local Merchants

What began as a single store with a single recipe in 1983 has since expanded to coat tongues across Canada with its handcrafted, always-fresh repertoire of premium ice cream. The aroma of freshly baked waffle cones roams freely throughout each Marble Slab Creamery location, luring customers counterside to watch staff members blend nuts, fruits, and candies into a variety of ice-cream flavours atop a frozen slab. Ultra-fresh ingredients, including dairy products from local farms, vanilla from Madagascar, and fine European chocolates with up-to-date passports join forces to infuse each bite with an extra punch of sweetness. In addition to standard cones, Marble Slab Creamery's daily-made ice cream can also be savoured in the form of ice-cream cakes, milkshakes, and floats, and low-fat yogurts offer a lighter, equally delicious alternative.

Taste buds are playfully tickled by the flaky texture of florentiners ($3.15) or with the luxurious touch of a vanilla custard-infused Bienenstich ($9.95), which comes crowned with crumbly almond, glistening honey, and an innate sense of superiority. Whole cakes, such as an eight-inch Black Forest ($28.95) and strawberry mousse ($33) star during birth-week celebrations, and the traditional chocolate cake ($11.95+) delivers linearly sound shots of time-tested flavour. Customers can complete bakery bundles with a wide selection of buns, bretzel, and baguettes, as well as a variety of gluten-free goodies and sweets for diabetics.
