During a spring-like day in November, I decided to check out the near-urban–myth-status ice cream place near the river (hence the ‘bridge’ name) on the south side. The ice cream is more like the smooth machine variety than modern hand-made boutique-style, but good nonetheless. There are endless varieties and toppings and the price is very reasonable. The weather brought everyone... More

This ice cream shop on Jubilee at the food of the Elm Park Bridge is seldom without a line up! Everyone knows the BDI and everyone goes there at least once each summer. It serves a great variety of treats but unfortunately does not serve Hard Ice Cream. We can't totally hold this against them since there is always a... More

The ice cream ad BDI is truly the richest and creamiest! A huge attraction during the summer so it's always a score when the line is short, but even with long lines it is absolutely worth the wait. The staff is always extremely nice and with the huge range of choices (which are always changing), they are also very flexible... More

First, everyone who's local SHOULD know the rules: 1. Cash only 2. Form separate lines at each open window, it's not Tim Hortons Saltzburg has Nutella and sea salt, in and on a chocolate dipped vanilla cone in a waffle cone. So good! The Goog has the upside down blueberry Sundae, a classic. If you think it's going to be... More

The BDI is a winnipeg tradition that everyone in town tries to get to at least once a summer. The long lines every night should tell you all you need to know. Portions are massive! even the small. Recommended for the brave: the GOOG special!!! good luck!!!

Took a drive with some friends to the city taking in the forks and then the main idea for the drive was to stop by Bridge Drive In For some ice cream. We arrived to find a massive line up of people. I guess they must be good or the people wouldn't wait in such a long line. It took... More

We live close by, so we try out the ice cream about twice a year to see if we can ever "get" what the fuss is all about. This place is infamous for long line ups. We try different things each time we visit and still haven't tasted anything that explains the long line ups. I'm pretty sure people are... More

When visiting Winnipeg we make a special visit to Jubilee and the Elm Park bridge and area. Upside down milkshakes, the Goog Special and the best sundaes made fresh and to order. The long lines can be expected but the friendly hard working staff do their best to get the delicious ice cream specialties and orders out. A must when... More

This was our first visit to the BDI in years of coming to Winnipeg. The ice cream was great. There was a long line but it was worth the wait. I had the Google which was really good. They will substitute the types of ice cream as well in the specials. A great place to go for a treat.
