    Hipster ice cream, but fantastic ice cream. Not overly sweet, yet still rich, creamy, and delicious. Try their London Fog and Serious Chocolate! Mind that the waits can be fairly long, however.

    Top notch ice cream! Lived up to its Urbanspoon ratings. I had the Salted Caramel & London Fog flavours. My brother enjoyed his Whiskey Hazelnut flavour. Cannot wait to be back & get a pint!

    What happens when two people who love ice cream get together? I am not talking about simply loving to eat ice cream, I mean love all things about ice cream. What happens is Earnest Ice Cream. Read more

    The whiskey hazelnut and London Fog are two of my favourites. The seasonal 33 Acres of Malt collab with 33 Acres Brewing is amazing. However, vegan options are pretty mediocre most of the time.

    Affogato. Matchstick Coffee x Whiskey Hazelnut. Or even better, Matchstick Coffee x Cardamom. The right amount of sweet people and ice cream.

    I knew this place was going to have great ice cream but I was surprised how subtle the sweetness was. Pleasantly surprised! Beware: this ice cream is filling. Coffee was great too!

    What more is there to say than Gingerbread ice cream. Spectacular flavour, a spice explosion and chunks of ginger...a heavenly holiday treat. Thank God I don't live next door!

    Hot fudge sundae is a winner. Get it to stay so there is nothing to throw away. The lineup is sometimes legendary, but if you are there for pints, there is a separate queue. Reusable containers.

    Go early to avoid long lineups. Bring back your old Earnest Jars to get $1 off your next pint. 33 acres of malt and whiskey hazelnut are my favorites.

    Best ice cream in Canada. Made with quality, local ingredients. You can taste the difference. Amazing customer service as well.

    Lavender was perfect, not at all "perfumey" which was my fear. Sweet and creamy with a lovely herby South of France appeal.

    If you're with a friend and don't mind the germs, get 2 scoops in a cup for $7 instead of paying $5 each. They'll give you two spoons and it's super romantic...

    I wanted to like this place, well, because everyone else is obsessed, but they use corn syrup in their ice cream, and artificial flavors. My take home pint was also iced over.

    Earnest takes the things we love and turns them into ice cream. I mean, whisky hazelnut? Ridiculously good.
