Everything at Holman's is homemade. Not just the ice cream but everything that we put into it; the sauces, the chunks, the flavours.
Our cones are made with our tried and tested homemade recipe and are made fresh throughout the day. The carnival smell you get when you arrive is from our freshly baked cones.

While Holman's Ice Cream Parlour was first established in 2016, the Holman Homestead history and legacy began over a century ago. The Homestead was first built as a parsonage in 1854. It was purchased by R.T. Holman in the 1870 and remained in that family for over a century. The Holman name was kept to honour their contribution to Summerside and PEI.
In 2015, the property was slated for demolition. Heeding the plea of the local historical society, the Meister family purchased the property and repurposed it as an ice cream parlour. Holman's Ice Cream Parlour is now the top dessert destination in PEI and a jewel of Summerside.
