Welcome to La Cigale.

We love Ice cream and we think you will love our ice cream too once you try any one of our 24 homemade flavours.

Whether you are the more adventuresome type who would like to try one of our original flavour creations (such as Gingersnap and Chai), or you prefer one of the classics, we think we have something for everyone. Choose to try any one of them in a homemade waffle cone or in a scrumptious sundae, or take some home in a tub to share.

We are nestled in the beautiful town of Old Chelsea, Quebec, only 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa, Ontario, directly across from the Gatineau Park’s visitors centre.  In summer months we invite you to relax in our perennial flower garden with your ice cream and enjoy the fresh country air. We accept dogs in our yard and we also have a dog dish and a hook for your leash in front of our store.

Hope to see you soon!
