Vancouver's Perverted Ice Cream dessert chain to open in former Soda Shoppe space
CITIFIED.CA STAFF

Vancouver's Perverted Ice Cream is readying to open its first Island location in a retail space formerly occupied by The Soda Shoppe in downtown Victoria's Belmont Building.

Interior renovations are underway in a small space at 796 Humboldt Street which was vacated late last year in tandem with the Sam's Deli & Bistro and Dog-Gone-It.

Perverted Ice Cream is known for unique ice cream creations with flavour profiles untraditional to the creamy snack. The company's first location opened last year along the 700-block of Thurlow Street in downtown Vancouver.

In addition to serving up fantastical treats, Perverted Ice Cream's Vancouver staff can come to their patrons with catering services accommodating between 50 and 2,000 people. Private events can also be hosted at the Thurlow Street shop between the hours of 10AM and noon, and after closing time (10PM or 11PM).

Although the company has not identified a specific opening date, patrons are likely to start enjoying Victoria's take on perverted ice cream by mid-summer. The shop's catering and event services will be announced then.

The chain's entry onto the Victoria market follows in the footsteps of a number of Vancouver-based food businesses that have recently gone Island-bound, which include Virtuous Pie and Flying PigC

Note: this article was updated to reflect that Perverted Ice Cream's retail space will be situated solely within the Soda Shoppe component of the formerly joint Dog-Gone-It/Soda Shoppe businesses.
