Ice Cream, Ice Cream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

The only trouble is deciding which flavour to order.

Lily & Claudia's

How many of us can say that we started our first successful business when we were under twelve years old? Well, for Lily, Claudia and Brendan partners and owners of Lily's and Claudia's it's a reality! The trio opened their ice cream parlor in June of 2014 and already it's the talk of the town. With a keen sense for business, which the team inherited from their parents, it's no wonder that their ice cream parlor is showing no signs of slowing down.

You can't miss this dynamic and lively bunch that brighten up Mill Market with their big smiles and colourful uniforms. You'll find Lily, Claudia and Brendan serving ice cream every Mill Market day. Open in June on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 12pm until 6pm and July and August, Wednesday through Sunday from noon until 6pm. But don't worry, these kids will be out enjoying summer and having fun like their peers on their days off!

In keeping with the local food mantra of Mill Market, you'll only find fresh locally made ice cream at their shoppe. Customers can choose from Mint Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Vanilla, Butter Pecan, Rolo, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream, Raspberry Lemon-Lime Sherbet served in a cup, cone or waffle cone! New this year are vanilla or chocolate Chapman's ice cream cups that are peanut free! Can't decide? Take some advice from the experts! Brendan would recommend Peanut Butter Chocolate, Claudia loves Rolo and Lily is crazy about Cookies and Cream.
