An outrageous gelato pop-up is happening in Scarborough right now

Jun 23 2020, 8:51 am

The heat is on, Toronto, and so is the need to find a way to beat it!

Luckily for those on the east side of town, an over-the-top spot for cooling treats has popped up at a Scarborough coffee shop.

Gelato Freak will be operating out of Vanta Coffee Club, all summer long.

Offering scoops of mouthwatering gelato over churros and waffles, between cookies, and covered in delectable toppings, the pop-up is open from 11 am to 9 pm, every day, until the end of the season.

One of the most tempting offerings is the Los Dulce Churro, which consists of caramel cookie crunch gelato with Skor, caramel, and real whipped cream, served over cinnamon sugar churros.

The Strawberry Shortfreak also looks unreal — that’s a Belgian waffle topped with strawberry cheesecake gelato, graham crackers, real strawberry topping, cream cheese icing, and rainbow sprinkles.

If something handheld is more your style, the Pistachio Gelato Cookie Sandwich, with Skor bits, served in a triple-chocolate chunk cookie, might just fit the bill.
