But just remember, a great day is never fully complete without ice cream! Shaw’s Ice Cream’s first stand-alone retail store is right on the ground floor, where you can enjoy the infamous St. Thomas dairy bar’s treats right in London. Made from 100% Ontario cow’s milk, their creamy, delicious ice cream comes in over 50 unique flavours. Our favourite is definitely Grammy’s Cupboard!
