We only have a few weeks left of summer (sorry), and even though you can eat ice cream in the winter, it's just not as fun. 

While we have some amazing ice cream spots in Ottawa, a lot of them are boujee AF like this waffle cone shop or these adorable macaron ice cream sandwiches. If you're just looking for some simple (but delicious) original scoop ice cream, this is the place to be. You can also add it to the list of hidden gems in Ottawa, because it definitely deserves that title.

Carp Custom Creamery is a little hidden shop in Carp (obviously), and their ice cream is absolutely unreal. It's located in an adorable house that takes your order through a window, so it's super old school. And you best believe that their ice cream will take you back to being a kid.

They have a wide variety of flavours from classic vanilla to blue bubblegum, and even the pickiest eaters will find something they love. Salted peanut? Skoreo? Yes please. 

If you're not a big ice cream fan like me, don't worry. They have other options like slushies and milkshakes that are to die for. They don't have any fancy treats like waffle bubble cones, but they do have chocolate tacos which are actually unreal.
