I Scream, You Scream - La Lichette

Posted by Emily / July 1, 2007

There has always been one particular aspect of many ice cream shops that I have found undesirable, and that is the décor. The bright, pastel-coloured walls, the fluorescent lights, the pictures of cows and the ridiculous uniforms the staff are forced to wear make me feel like I walked into a six-year-old’s birthday party.

La Lichette on St Denis is my kind of ice cream parlour. The décor is by no means dreary or sophisticated, but nor is it reminiscent of a nursery. And of course, the ice cream is extremely yummy.

With light blue stools and two-person tables lining the wall of the shop, the ambiance has an old timey, back-to-basics kind of feel. There are a few pictures on the walls, but they’re not silly drawings of cows but mouth-watering photos of dripping ice cream cones and towering, fudge-covered sundaes.

The ice cream seems to match the shop’s décor: not too sweet, just right. It tastes homemade and the creaminess isn’t overpowered by too much added sugar or flavouring. Even if La Lichette was as cutesy as a cupcake, the ice cream would make up for it.

My favourite flavour so far is the green tea ice cream which had a very subtle bitterness from the tea. The black cherry flavour was just a little tart and really refreshing. I also tried a fudgy chocolate flavour which had a deep dark chocolate taste and wasn’t excessively sweet.

The prices at La Lichette aren't much different from those at Ben & Jerry’s, but in my opinion the Lichette staff are cooler. Case in point: two out of the three times that I visited the St. Denis shop, I received two scoops and only had to pay for one. That’s cool.

Great website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!
