Surprised it is still in business

This place is a complete joke. We have preordered a birthday cake for our 12yo niece's birthday party. They forgot to fill an order for a birthday cake, did not have the ingredients to make it, but eventually agreed to buy some supplies to make it last minute and promised that resulting cake will look as close as what was ordered possible. They said they were missing strawberry puree, but went and bought strawberries. One clerk said the puree is also mixed into the inside of the cake and thus was an important ingredient. When the cake was picked up, it looked nothing like what was ordered. Original cake is covered with strawberries. Cake received has a thin layer of jam like sauce on top and that was it. The inside has no hint of strawberry puree either. There was not one slice of strawberry on the cake. Birthday cake message was incomplete so I asked the guy that was there to add what was missing. What was added on afterwards was utterly horrible. So I told him to at least put some pieces of strawberries on top so that it would somewhat resemble what it should look like and cover the horrible icing writing. We only took away the cake because we had no choice as we cannot return to the birthday party empty handed. The guy at the store did apologize but emphasized that they went out just to get fresh ingredients so that they can make this cake today, just for me. Needless to say, I was speechless and was in disbelief. This is the worst experience I've had with any orders I have made.

Great Ice Cream for a warm day!

I love Marble Slab. Even though some of the flavours and combinations don't work, there's a lot to choose from and you can always experiment.

The way it generally works is you build your cone/bowl from ice cream flavour, to waffle cone/regular cone/bowl to added ingredients, which can be anything from cookie dough to reese peanut butter cups to marshmallows to gummy bears.

So far, Peanut Butter ice cream +Peanut Butter cups is my fave. However, their birthday cake icecream is incredibly smooth and delicious, and if you like more generic, simple ice creams, I'd give that a try.

The ice cream costs a bit more than I'd like to pay, with a small bowl at about $5. Service is pretty good, the staff are usually ridiculously young (like... 14 years old) but they try pretty hard and are happy to give samples.

I liked this place!

I've heard of Marble Slab and birthday cake flavoured ice cream. This place lived up to it's hype.

This is a new location but its busy all of the time. People flock here like lemmings.

The ice cream is so worth the wait though. Sure, other places do this like the blizzard or mcflurry but there's something about Marble Slab that just tastes bettter.

I've tried fruit mix-in's, cookie mix-in's and chocolate/nut mix-in's and they are all delicious. I also tried a banana split, and while it's an once in a year treat, it was worth the calories.

I'm not even such a fan of ice cream, I'm more of a gelato fan, but this place is yummy and while I usually never finish my cone, here I do.

This would be a fun place to treat your kids, or any ages would enjoy it really.

There are better ice cream parlours out there

WHen they first opened up I gave it a try but found out qickly that a SMALL cup cost $6.77. The ice cream wasn't the greatest and on top of that they measured everything! Needless to say that it was too expensive to keep on going there and was only a one time thing. The ice cream parlour Mama Mia across the street is much more affordable with a larger selection of ice cream, bubble teas, milkshakes and even food.

Best parlour around

Well at first I was hesitant to go in and check out this Ice Cream Store. I mean ice cream is ice cream. I googled it one day and kinda found some crappy reviews but I guess that's almost the only time people put up reviews! Because when I went there, the hostess/scooper or w/e was super perky. I was eyeing the cakes and they told me all about them and then offered me a taste of each flavor because they had them in the serving area. It was wicked! Then they offered me the "create your own cake" with 48 hours notice... and i could try it in a cone anyhow. So I ended up ordering a Birthday Cake flavor with sprinkles, m and ms and gummy bears. It was wicked and my girlfriend really enjoyed it. As for people saying it's cheap... WHERE ELSE can you possibly find ice cream that fresh???? They made it in the store I was like holy crap!! She totally blew my mind and I'm not a regular with my hidden pink marble slab rewards card!

Good Ice Cream - Overpriced and Underportioned
By clotheshog of Surrey, BC (5 Reviews)

So I am a huge fan of the US chain Coldstone Creamery and thought I'd give this place a try - it's the same sort of thing, right? Wrong! I was totally put off by the fact that they weigh each order on a little piece of wax paper. A scoop is a scoop. No wonder it takes so long for an order! Can you imagine if Baskin Robins had to do that each time they scooped a cone? And a double scoop!? They should be able to eyeball it in a days' work. We ordered a "large" scoop, it was probably 1 cup (250ml) worth of ice cream. The ice cream tasted good, but I have had better.

Then came the "add in" - which, being so close to Easter, I chose the little Cadbury Easter Minis. They added a very carefully measured small scoop of exactly 6 candies for our "large" scoop of ice cream. Not exactly generous. How much was this? $5.95 +$0.75 for the waffle bowl, + tax. $8? And kiddie cones are $3.50 if you're curious! I'd rather drive down to Casa Gelato and get real home made ice cream.

I know it's a special treat - one that you don't do often, but save your money and get yourself a Blizzard. It's the same rush. And will leave you just as satisfied, for a lot less. This place is just a novelty.
