From high-concept ice-cream parlours to intimate Italian eateries, the Drive offers a wide range of foodie delights.

77KFreeze_That-Guy-4-PS.jpg1. 77K Freeze

Nitrogen ice cream isn't trending just because of the dramatic puff of smoke it's served out of. The sci-fi-style technique freezes ingredients instantly, allowing for fresher and more creative flavour combinations like blueberry pine or 77K Freeze's signature Snowflake lychee flavour with crisp water chestnut pieces. Bring your cool puns. 2240 Comercial Drive

AbstractCafe.CMYK_-768x768.jpg 2. The Abstract Cafe

This cozy cafe opened in 2016, but the artsy-more-hippie-than-hipster space already feels like a Commercial drive classic. Stop by for folksy singalongs, hip-hop showcases and kid-friendly painting jams, or just browse the local art on display over a hot cup of tomato soup with apple and smoked bacon. 1692 Venables St
