The best ice cream in Toronto brings all the lines to the yard, and you best believe they will be long. It seems queuing up for these sweet treats has become this city's most beloved summertime tradition – and when the ice cream is this decked out it might be worth it. And don't forget, Toronto has soft serve and gelato options too.
Here's the best ice cream in Toronto.6 - Wong's Ice Cream
Don't let this bare bones, East Chinatown store fool you. It might just look like your run-of-the-mill convenience store but Wong's is a single-man operation selling some of the most uniquely simple scoops in the city: think flavours like ube, rosewater white chocolate jasmine, or wasabi honey.
5 - Dutch Dreams
Another local institution, Dutch Dreams on St. Clair West has a super fun interior and cotton candy-decked out ice cream cones that'll never go out of style. Every order here basically looks like an explosion of ice cream, fruit, and candy.
7 - Greg's Ice Cream (Distillery)
Ever since 1981, Greg Mahon's huge selection of rotating ice cream flavours has been a Toronto summertime go-to. The Distillery location is even quainter than its spot in the <a href="https://ift.tt/2LoWsb9>, but both scoop up all the same favourites like roasted marshmallow and sweet cream.
10 - Summer's Ice Cream
A visit to this ice cream parlour is a classic Yorkville move. Open since 1991, heading into this little store will have you walking out with basic but satisfying scoops of homemade flavours like apple pie and toasted marshmallow.
9 - Booyah
Just a few doors down from Dutch Dreams, this St. Clair West store is a modern space scooping up ice cream into everything, from waffle taco shells to cookie sandwiches for the easiest consumption. They offer vegan stuff as well as some classic flavours from Ed's Real Scoop and Kawartha Dairy.
11 - Arctic Bites
These Thai ice cream rolls are definitely not your traditional hard ice cream. Head to this Baldwin Village restaurant to watch the entrancing process of how this ice cream is frozen and rolled into perfect, airy, bite-sized treats you can douse with your choice of tasty toppings.
8 - Sweet Olenka's (Kensington Market)
What started off as a chocolatier on Lakeshore Blvd. W is now a super popular Toronto destination for all things sweet. Vegans can enjoy their homemade ice cream in a cone, cup, or cookie sandwich.
3 - Bang Bang Ice Cream and Bakery
The lineups here just don't end. It's been years since this sweet shop opened on Ossington, and to this day you'll still see people lining up every day of the summer for their egg waffles stuffed with fave flavours like the Totaro and Earl Grey.
4 - Ed's Real Scoop (Roncesvalles)
A real Toronto ice cream OG, Ed's has been stirring up its extensive list of flavours for what feels like forever. On top of the Roncey spot, you can visit its original location in the <a href="https://ift.tt/2v63ztV>, its second spot in <a href="https://ift.tt/2LpWWxX>, or its newest in Mimico to get your choice of all-natural flavours in a cone or a pint to go.
