Love is sweeter than chocolate

In 2001, La Cigale first opened its doors in a small heritage house on the main street in Old Chelsea. Offering freshly churned ice cream to residents, hikers and visitors to the Gatineau Park, we gradually became known for our fresh take on that simple pleasure. In 2009 we moved to a larger space just around the corner. We were able to add a wraparound porch and extend our garden; all with the intent of growing our business in a way that continues to emphasize fun, relaxation and genuine goodness.

Spoil Yourself!

Chocolate Hazelnut

There is something so very comforting about hazelnuts. Here we’ve paired it with a creamy milk chocolate so it doesn’t overpower the delicate flavour of the nuts.

Mango Sorbet

Made with real fruit!

Raspberry White Chocolate Sandwich

Raspberry White Chocolate ice cream sandwiched between 2 homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Banana Skor Walnut

Banana and nuts are a natural combination, but add the crunch of toffee and this one rises to a whole new level.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream mounded in a chocolate cookie pie crust, topped with whipped cream and double chocolate cookie pieces.

Fruit and Nut Pie

Apple Pie, Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie, Blueberry Pie, Apple-Raspberry Pie, Pecan Pie and Sugar Pie.


Home-made ice creams


This one never disappoints. Dark and rich, our chocolate will satisfy any chocoholic.

Raspberry White Chocolate

This flavour starts with our white chocolate ice cream and then we swirl homemade raspberry sauce through it. Beautiful and delish!

Coconut Cashew

Sweet and salty at it’s best.


Most people describe vanilla as plain, but all vanillas are not alike. We use a double strength Madagascar Bourbon vanilla in our ice cream, and it is anything but plain!


Spoil Yourself!

Jimmy Mac Brownie Attack

Decadent and a chocolate lovers dream, this is one of my favourites.

Banana Split

I believe it is something everyone should try at least once in there lives.

Malted Milkshakes

Malted milkshakes or malts are hard to find these days. People often think they are just a thick milkshake, but in fact they are a milkshake with malt powder added to it.

Frosted Mocha

Made with a homemade mocha sherbet, real espresso and ice.
