Hutch’s Harbour Front 325 Bay Street North

If you’re keeping up, I’ve been on a mission. A mission to eat all of the ice cream. It ain’t over yet! It wouldn’t be a tour of the city’s ice cream spots without a trip to my favourite spot in Hamilton, the Waterfront. I say it’s my favourite, and it is, but I still don’t go there nearly enough. Whether Bayfront Park or Pier 8, I love being down in the north end and close to the water.

Back in late June, I ventured down to Bayfront for the Hamilton edition of Dusk Dances – it was the third time that the show came to Hamilton and after attending last year, I knew I had to check it out again. Keep it in your calendars for next year – it takes place on the last weekend in June and it’s just magical!

When in Bayfront, you hit Hutch’s! It’s a classic Hamilton spot. A fun memory I made there was just this year – after winning the Hamilton Music Award for Website/Online Publication back in May, my friend Celina and I went to Hutches for celebratory cones.

I love fish and chips, but I went straight for the ice cream this time. Hutch’s serves up Stoney Creek Dairy ice cream and they have quite the selection to choose from. I saw Birthday Cake, and knew that was the winner. For my second scoop, I went with Super Kid. That flavour really took me back – remember Super Kid? Super nostalgic, tasting that for the first time in years.

Bayfront is an ideal ice cream spot – grab a cone and then get your exercise in with a nice walk around the area. I love that so many peaceful spots are in close proximity to the busier parts of the city.

Until next time – more ice cream still to come!
