Welcome to La Cigale – where every scoop tells a story and every visit feels like a sweet escape. Nestled in the heart of Chelsea, Quebec, our cozy ice cream haven is more than just a place to indulge; it's a journey through time, flavour, and the simple joy of savouring homemade goodness.

Close your eyes, and let's take a trip back to 1998, where my husband George and I found ourselves in Senegal, Africa. Amidst the adventure, I stumbled upon a life-changing article in Bon Appétit, introducing me to the magic of homemade ice cream. The inspiration struck, and upon returning home, I embarked on a delicious education, attending ice cream courses at prestigious institutions like Penn State and the University of Wisconsin.

The Scoop of History

In 2001, La Cigale sprang to life in a charming storefront on Chelsea's main street. The aroma of freshly churned ice cream beckoned locals, hikers, and Gatineau Park visitors alike. As word spread about our delectable creations, our dream blossomed. By 2010, we found ourselves in a larger space, complete with a welcoming wraparound porch and an extended garden, just across from Gatineau Park's Visitors' Centre.

At La Cigale, each decision is driven by our passion for fun, relaxation, and the simple pleasure of savoring homemade ice cream. Our goal is to create an environment where every visit leaves you with a smile and a satisfied sweet tooth.

So, whether you're a local looking for your regular fix or a visitor exploring the charm of Chelsea, La Cigale welcomes you to experience ice cream like never before. Join us on this delightful journey, one scoop at a time.
