Vancouver is definitely a place filled with hidden gems. Sometimes, tucked away in areas with virtually no foot traffic, you’ll find a spot that is just so crazy good that you have to blow it up all over social media. Rooster’s Ice Cream Bar is one of those spots. Their homemade ice cream has created quite a buzz and has quickly become a word-of-mouth destination for sweet treats.
