Places to eat
The MacKay family has been making and selling ice cream in Cochrane since 1948. Their flavours include old stand bys like chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, flavors that remind me of my childhood like cotton candy and tiger and more unusual options like baklava, durian and avocado.
Avenue now has a second location in Cochrane. Their cakes and cupcakes have a huge following and are sure not to disappoint.
