A new non-dairy ice cream spot is opening up in The Plateau in June

May 7 2019, 9:51 pm

Just as Montrealers enjoyed a taste of springtime weather, they can soon enjoy a taste of dairy-free ice cream.

SWIRL, which is slated to open next month, will operate as a takeout window where customers can stop by and enjoy scratch-made, dairy-free, soft serve ice cream made with organic coconut milk.

“The concept for SWIRL was to create a minimal shop with only a few items on the menu, designed to highlight simple ingredients,” said SWIRL co-owner Charles Deluvio, in an interview with Daily Hive. “Our rotating soft serve flavours will feature greenmarket fruits, as well as Asian ingredients, from sea buckthorn to¬†hŇćjicha.”

The vegan soft serve spot is slated to open at 230 Rachel Est, on the corner of avenue Laval, a popular foodie spot that already features the likes of HÀO, Patisserie Notre-Dame Du Rosaire, RAKU, and Café Replika.

“All of the founders have some intolerance to lactose so we don’t get to enjoy a good ice cream as often as we’d like,” continued¬†Deluvio. “What we’re trying to create here is an honest product that can look and taste as good as the ones served at our favourite ice cream shops.”
