We got lucky and arrived when there was no line because it was about to start raining very hard and very heavy.
The soft serve changes every two weeks and this week it was passion fruit sorbet and vanilla ice cream and let me tell you that was some delicious stuff. My son had the salted butter ice cream and some kind of chocolate ice cream and my wife just had a cup of the salted butter ice cream. Man oh man is this stuff good.
The service was good and the owner is very pleasant. I would definitely come back to this place if I ever return to Montreal.

This was the last stop on our "Mile End Food Tour".

When we walked up there was a line of people waiting and many people sitting outside eating ices. Luckily, our guide Vera was able to skip the line and collect a tray reserved for the tour.

The ice-cream/mango ice combination was so good that we stuck around after the tour and got in line for more.

A very small place with a very strong following. We visited as part of a food tour in Mile End so we bypassed the line, but it definitely would have been worth it to wait in a long line for the delicious ice cream. The unusual flavors just explode in your mouth with strength. We had a combination of blueberry and honey.

Great little place.

If it's mango sorbet, it tastes like legit mango sorbet. If it's raspberry + lychee, it tastes like raspberry and lychee.

Compared to Ka Lem and other places, Kem Co Ba tastes like the "real" ingredients are added in the mix rather than artificial flavoring.

Price: Smallest cup (2 flavors) = 3.80$ (with tax) which I find satisfying. ---Cash only--- Come prepare!

Yes, there is always practically a line, but as most reviewers say, it moves surprisingly quick (that is if you wait in line with your friends). For die-hard fans out there, there is a Twitter account that updates how many are in line... (No jk!)

Always expect line ups at this trendy ice cream parlour. It is worth the wait. The cream flavours are unique. I enjoyed a delicious lime and mango combo. The chocolate ice cream is a fantastic 72% cocoa dark chocolate.
In all we waited about 15 minutes even though the lines stretched to the street intersection.
