When it comes to frozen desserts, we can all agree that you'll want a scoop of the good stuff. When you are craving ice cream, that cheap bucket in the back of your freezer simply won't do the trick. Where you'll want to go is this retro soda shop in Vancouver that makes drool-worthy massive sundaes.
Heading to Glenburn Soda Fountain in Burnaby is like stepping back in time. The retro family-owned business specializes in desserts that will put a smile on your face.
Just like the old-school ice cream parlours you've seen in television shows, here you can get towering parfaits loaded with delicious toppings like brownies, candies, and sprinkles. When it comes to desserts, you'll be spoiled for a choice.
They even sell classic banana splits with a heaping portion of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream, hot fudge, pineapple and strawberry sauces, bananas, walnuts, cherries and a mountain of whipped cream.
The massive treat is perfect to share in the summer and would make a super cute date idea that won't break the bank.
There are 14 specialty sundaes, plus scoops of ice cream, milkshakes, malts, and egg creams. Or you can try their delicious cookie dough, which is loaded with chocolate chips and served in a waffle cone.
If you prefer, there is also the option to make your own custom combination. You can also mix and match any of the ice cream flavours and sauces.
Plus, they carry plenty of gluten-free and dairy-free options too.
Recently, they just announced on Kickstarter, that they would be opening a second location at 4347 Hastings Street in Burnaby.
The new shop will be take-out only and have a walk-up window where you can get their frozen treats and other savoury options like waffle grilled cheese.
At their original location, they stay open till 10:00 p.m. to satisfy your late-night cravings.
Prices are all under $15, with a mini scoop being $3.75, and the banana split royale priced at $14.75.

Why You Need To Go: It's not summer unless you've treated yourself to a banana split royale.
