The 9 Best Milkshakes in Edmonton

1. D Spot Dessert Cafe

D Spot Dessert Cafe has incredibly decadent milkshakes that will become a favourite spot in Edmonton for milkshake lovers. Not only are the milkshakes served in aesthetically pleasing glass cups (don’t worry, you can also get them to go), but they come in loads of different flavour combinations.

The Milkshakes include delicious, over-the-top flavour combinations like Lotus Cookie Butter, Banoffee, and My BFF, a fusion of strawberry ice cream and fresh banana. D Spot also has a candy bar milkshake, which is vanilla ice cream combined with a choice of candy, such as Smarties, Reeses, Kit Kat, and more, topped with whipped cream.

I recommend getting the Kid in Me milkshake featured in the image above. It is made with birthday cake ice cream topped with whipped cream, cotton candy, and sprinkles. Does that not sound like the best milkshake flavour ever? If you don’t want something as sweet, they also have flavours, including Wake Me Up Vanilla, Twisted Chocolate, and a Strawbery Cheesecake milkshake.

D Spot Dessert Cafe is also one of the best places to get dessert in Edmonton. I recommend one of their dessert-style waffles, complete with a donut on top.

6. Sylv’s On-Site Retro Diner 

One of Edmonton’s best places to get milkshakes is Sylv’s On-Site Retro Diner. Not only are the milkshakes great quality and great tasting, but a trip to Sylv’s can be the perfect day out as the restaurant is inside Yesterday’s Auto Gallery.

The milkshakes are some of the best old-fashioned classic shakes you can get in Edmonton. Located inside a car museum, the 50s-style diner is the perfect place to take a date or the whole family out for a fun day in Edmonton.

If you aren’t interested in visiting the museum, home to over 100 classic cars on display, with a car as old as 1926, you can still visit Sylv’s and sip on their amazing milkshakes.

7. Hathaway’s Diner

Edmonton’s classic Hathaway’s Diner serves incredibly delicious milkshakes and provides the perfect ambiance for a cozy afternoon treat.

The milkshakes are served in decorated glasses filled to the brim with delicious flavours, including strawberry, chocolate or fun flavours like Oreo, cinnamon bun and french toast. Each milkshake is topped with whipped cream and sprinkles, which tastes delicious and looks great.

The service is exceptional, but the space is quite small—there are roughly 14 tables—so you may have to wait to get your milkshake fix. Plus, Hathaway’s is not open in the evenings, so stop by midday to get one of the best milkshakes in Edmonton.

Parking can be difficult, but once you find a spot, it’ll be worth it for a Hathaway’s Diner milkshake.

Where to find them: 13225 132 St NW

8. Wayback Burgers

Located in Edmonton’s Greishbach neighbourhood, Wayback Burgers is known for having the best hand-dipped milkshakes in Edmonton.

Each milkshake is made with ice cream and milk and handcrafted to order. Delicious flavours include classics like strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, and cookies and cream.

I highly recommend trying the Oreo Mud Pie milkshake or the Black & White Shake. Both are sweet and creamy and will satisfy your milkshake craving.

Wayback Burgers also has locations on Jasper Avenue, Ellerslie Road, and 175th Street & 100 Avenue.

Where to find them: 9910 137 Ave NW #101

9. Peters’ Drive-In 

Head to Peters’ Drive-In to try one of their classic milkshakes. The classic fast food drive-in restaurant has an almost infinite selection of flavours to make your unique milkshake flavour.

Flavours include fruit options, sweets (like caramel and bubble gum) and unique flavours like rootbeer. I recommend a classic chocolate milkshake with Oreo and caramel. It is delicious and one of the best milkshakes in Edmonton.

I also recommend enjoying a side of their tasty fries alongside your milkshake.
