Popular Vancouver ice cream truck to open a permanent storefront soon

Oct 22 2019, 11:27 pm

A popular Vancouver ice cream truck is opening a permanent storefront – and despite having its truck been broken into and robbed earlier this month – it’s happening soon.

Say Hello Sweets, maker of delicious non-dairy ice cream, ice cream sandwiches, and milkshakes, will be opening a brick and mortar outpost sometime in mid-November.

The ice cream purveyor will be taking over the previous location of Pazzo Chow at 620 Quebec Street in Chinatown.

The 963-sq. ft. space will be mostly dedicated to production but it will have some table and bar seating for customers, along with some outdoor tables during the warmer months.

Folks can expect a “modern take on retro ice cream parlours” with black and white checkered flooring and bright colours.

In terms of eats, Say Hello will offer a full coffee bar with locally roasted beans from Spent Grounds and pastries from local bakers (Yellow Basket Baking and Flourgirl) alongside house-made desserts, ice cream, and ice cream novelties.

Some treats to look forward to include ice cream cake by the slice (in addition to custom ice cream cakes), a Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake, Ice Dream Sandwiches (classics and rotating feature flavours), house-made gluten-free waffle cones, and Honey Box Toast.

As a nod to the former tenant, Say Hello Sweets will offer Pazzo’s line of Italian sauces called Sugo Sauce, so people can still get a taste of the brand in the same location.

Say Hello customers are also are entitled to one-hour free parking in the parkade above the shop, so once this spot opens all you have to do is get yourself there and then enjoy!

We’ll keep you posted on an exact opening date.

Say Hello Sweets

Address: 620 Quebec Street, Vancouver
