Plateau Ice Creamery Ripples Is Expanding to Mile End

It’s almost time to trade that frigid winter hellscape for a sweaty summer hellscape — which also means it’s ice cream season.

And this year, there’s big news for longtime Plateau staple Ripples: the 35-year-old ice creamery appears to be planning to open in Mile End.

Signage with Ripples’ logo on it has appeared in a storefront at the corner of St-Viateur and Jeanne-Mance streets. It will be located right behind coffee shop Myriade Mile-End, in a retail space that is connected to the café. It previously housed a Japanese kitsch shop, and before that, trendy clothing store Savoie Fils.

Under owner Richard Bernett, Ripples has been scooping up house-made frozen treats at its location on St-Laurent for three decades. It made a name for itself with its classic French vanilla flavour, but offers some 30 options all up, running from staples like strawberry and chocolate to nougat-like halvah and a mojito sorbet.

Despite Ripples’ enduring popularity and small storefront, Bernett has never attempted a second location for the crèmerie, although he has branched out into private events and wholesale options, meaning Mile End will be just its second location.
