Mary's is an ice-cream house with 60 flavors of Gelato and ice-cream since 1994. First chewy ice-cream in lower mainland.
Bought the kids single scoops of ice cream. The kids had chocolate. I had butter pecan. The kids thought the chocolate was okay - but my son thought it a little sweet. My butter pecan had no flavour and no pecans that I could discern. I also thought the consistency was chalky.
The ambiance was non-existent. It was uncomfortable in the shop with little decor.
The server was unsmiling and curt.
We ended up going here because of the long line up for Timothy's Ice Cream nearer the water. I guess there was a reason for that. Next time, we will stand in line too and avoid Mary's.
This place is located right next door to the amazing candy store in Steveston. This ice cream / gelato place has a permanent 2 for 1 special. I see the board for that special in the summer and winter. I don't get why they just don't offer a reduced price on cones instead of having the convoluted 2 for 1 special. I actually didn't get ice cream here, I got their slushy lemonade. That was pretty good, nicely sour and sweet. Good spot for ice cream if you have kids.
Went here last weekend and was a little disappointed with this place in general.
Food: Flavours-wise, it boasts that it has 60 different flavours, but it doesn't offer anything special or unique to this place (whereas places like La Casa Gelato or Mario's Gelato offers flavours that only they make).
Service: Service was just terrible! The feeling the guy behind the counter gave off was that he'd rather be anywhere but there. Plus, my boyfriend asked for his ice cream to be in a regular plastic cup but the guy put it in a waffle cup instead (my boyfriend absolutely hates his ice cream in anything but a plastic cup).
Value: Value was not bad as the place was doing a buy one get one free deal, but it did seem a little ridiculous that anything other than having your ice cream in a plastic cup costs extra (other places I've been to does NOT charge extra).
Ambiance: Um, what ambiance? There were a couple of high stools inside the store and a few plastic chairs outside... not much was done in the way of decorating the place.
