About Us

Harlan’s was originally established in 1980. The Salt Spring Island sweet spot is nestled in the heart of Ganges.

Harlan originally opened this little shop when Salt Spring was less than 5,000 people. Over the past 44 years, the shop and its sweet offerings has become an island landmark for locals and salt springers at heart to enjoy.

Today, we believe our purpose is crafting amazing chocolate, gelato ice cream and also about being in service to each soul who visits us. We aspire to provide the kind of hospitality and welcome that feels like coming home. Every hug or handshake is firm, every smile genuine, and every sweet offering is imbued with the authentic spirit, connection and belonging that has defined Harlan’s for generations.
