Milkshakes in Toronto aren't exclusively a summertime treat; they're good year-round at ice cream parlours, diners and burger joints. From classics flavours like strawberry and vanilla to vegan alternatives and epic interpretations, these shakes are sure to satisfy.
Here are my picks for the top milkshakes in Toronto by neighbourhood.
Rose & Sons encourages diners to mix and match milkshake flavours. They're all made with a vanilla soft serve base and flavours includes Soma chocolate, wild blueberry, peanut butter, caramel, sour cherry cheesecake, creamsicle and triple bourbon.
BLOOR WEST VILLAGE
Expect to find ultra-indulgent options to accompany gourmet burgers at The Works. The 2001 Shake Odyssey is just one option. It features a blend of ice cream, caramel, peanut butter, Oreo cookies and whipped cream all served in a measuring cup.
Bean and Baker Malt Shop is a retro soda shop where thick shakes feature Kawartha Dairy ice cream. Inquire about the monthly feature flavour, which has recently included options like a maple butter tart shake.
WEST QUEEN WEST
Milkshakes are among the specialties at Fountain, a 1950s inspired soda shop that's serving up creamy, old fashioned shakes. Go for classic flavours like vanilla, strawberry or chocolate, or opt for a coffee-laced take made with a shot of espresso.
YONGE & DUNDAS
Signature shakes at Bareburger come in flavours like Bananas Foster and Hot Honey. Diners are also welcome to mix and match options like chocolate, peanut butter 'n banana, raspberry or strawberry.
YONGE & LAWRENCE
Stack Restaurant might be famous for its Southern-style smokehouse, but milkshakes prove to be the perfect compliment to a rack of ribs. The lineup of shakes includes flavour like s'mores or cinnamon doughnut.
YONGE & ST. CLAIR
Holy Chuck Burgers is home to some of the most unique milkshake creations in town. The menu from this mini chain boasts more than a dozen flavours ranging from classics like PB&J, Nutella, and strawberry, as well as savoury wasabi-ginger-scallion and a foie gras and truffle oil concoction.
