Yes, it’s that time of the year again! And of course we mean Ice Cream time! With so many options to choose from, we thought you might like some help finding some of the best places in the city to get a great cone on a hot summer’s day. From freshly made seasonal ice cream to delicious soft serve, we are giving you the facts on some of the best ice cream spots in Toronto!
1. Greg’s Ice Cream-Annex – 750 Spadina Avenue (Spadina and Bloor)
Opening their doors in December of 1981, Greg’s Ice Cream has been a staple for many locals over the years. They currently offer over 100 different flavours of ice cream that are made with all natural flavours. Flavours such as coffee toffee, salted caramel, masala chai and our personal favourite, roasted marshmallow! They just opened a second location in the Distillery District so if you’re in the area, stop by and get yourself a scoop. You won’t regret it!
2. Ed’s Real Scoop-Beaches – 2224 Queen Street East (Beech and Queen)
With 3 locations to choose from; The Beaches, Leslieville and Roncesvalles, if you are craving some great ice cream you shouldn’t be too far from an Ed’s Real Scoop! Not a fan of traditional ice cream? How about some Gelato, Sorbet or Frozen Yogurt? Ed’s got it! Flavours of sorbet offered include blood orange, lemon and mango. All made with real fruit! Ice Cream flavours? How about some chocolate chilli or Guinness stout? Yes, you can now have Guinness as an ice cream flavour!
3. Dutch Dreams – 36 Vaughan Road (Bathurst and St. Clair)
Established for 25 years and still going strong, Dutch Dreams is a favourite with their homemade ice cream made from a secret family recipe. They offer over 60 different flavours of ice cream such as, New York cheesecake, rum & raisin and moose droppings….yes, we said moose droppings! One of the specialties in this parlour is their hand dipped waffle cones with chocolate, M&M’s and nuts. In addition to ice cream, the store is equipped with a wall display of a variety of candy and a cotton candy machine! Take the kids on a sunny afternoon. They’ll think you’re a superhero and you can get some great ice cream too!
4. Tom’s Dairy Freeze – 627 The Queensway (The Queensway and McIntosh)
Open since 1969, Tom’s Dairy Freeze gives you that 60’s drive-in feel. With multiple parking spots surrounding the area, picnic benches out front and a small window (which you order from), Tom’s Dairy Freeze will definitely make you feel nostalgic. If you’re more of a soft serve ice cream fan, don’t fret! Tom’s serves not only hard ice cream but soft serve as well! Forgot to have dinner before going for your treat? Tom’s also offers great food such as homemade burgers, fresh cut fries and hotdogs.
