Why locals love it

You can’t miss it – this Mile End staple attracts attention with its hot pink & neon green façade and a lineup made up of families, couples, and groups of friends. Run by a friendly husband and wife duo on the corner of Fairmount and Clark, Kem CoBa’s name is inspired by the co-owner’s niece and signifies “third auntie’s ice cream” in Vietnamese.

Why you should visit it

Opt for a Strawberry-Lychee sorbet or their Peanut Butter & Honey, 72% Dark Chocolate, and Matcha ice cream flavours. If you’re feeling indecisive, a homemade soft serve ice cream combination appears every second week. Original groupings have included Madagascar Vanilla & Passion Fruit, as well as Quebec Blueberry & Honey, among many others!

Special tip

Kem CoBa’s frozen goods are made without preservatives or artificial flavours.

One of the best ice creams places in Montreal. It has flavours you don’t find somewhere else. A bit pricy but worth it. Tip: cash only

Is the line up that goes all the way around the corner for a cone of the home made ice cream worth the wait? You tell me, but it is one of the best ice cream spot in the entire city. Do not plan on going on a rainy day. They don’t bother opening then.

Asian inspired flavors, incredible soft ice cream. Kem Coba is the best ice cream shop in Montreal. There is always a line though, so be patient.
