What I tried:

  • London Fog and Pumpkin Cheesecake


  • What started out as a small batch ice cream producer is now a full fledged shop.

  • They supply unique flavors to other local café's and shops.

  • Great selection of vegan options as well as unique flavors.

  • It adds to the ever growing local dessert shops currently in Hamilton.


  • None

Must Try:

  • Personally I tried what I wanted to try which was the London Fog. It was simply wonderful.

  • They have a "Surprise" flavor which is very interesting and a must try. It is black in color so I am suspecting it to be charcoal based.

  • Other unique flavors I would give a try would be: cranberry rose, watermelon lavender, coffee, fruit loops, mango sriracha and blueberry thyme.

  • You could also try their ice cream on a waffle, pie or in a milk shake.


  • I went to Willard's on opening day and they were amazing there. Extremely friendly and personable.

  • They gave us the layout of the place and introduced us to all the flavors they had available. I was also given a few samples before deciding on one.

  • Great owners who want to put out great quality items.

  • 5/5


  • The London Fog ice cream was extremely flavorful and true to its flavor. It packed a huge punch of flavor and was very easy to distinguish. It was creamy but also not perfect(in a good way) like mass produced ice cream.

  • The pumpkin cheesecake ice cream also had a huge flavor profile and tasted just like cheesecake. It was rich and very decadent which was perfect.

  • The pricing for the cones were also very reasonable. $4.50 for a medium one scoop cone.

  • 5/5


  • Willard's is located on Main St E by Gage Park. Walking into the shop, it had great feature walls and wooden accents. Black and white are the color theme and wooden tables and chairs fill the shop.

  • A very inviting and great place to sit and relax with friends and family. A modern take on a classic ice cream shop.

  • 4/5


  • Give this shop a try and you will be pleasantly surprised with the quality and taste of the cones and ice cream. I look forward to being back in Hamilton and trying more flavors! Thanks for having me.
