Jun 22 2020, 7:19 am

It’s officially hot, Toronto! And you know what that means, it’s ice cream season.

After a rough spring experience, the return of creamy treats atop waffle cones (or between soft cookies!) offers a brief respite in the form of innocence, sweetness, and play.

If you — like us — are in the mood for something fun, consult this list for the spots offering ice cream to-go, or even for delivery, across Toronto right now:

This spot’s Bay and Dundas location is open daily from noon to 6 pm with an in-store limit of two customers at one time. You can also place orders online for next-day delivery. On top of their delightful ice cream offerings (Baker’s Tiramisu), you can also indulge in cake, cookies, sweetbreads, and more. All the better to eat ice cream with, we’d say…

Address: 120 Dundas Street West

It’s not ice cream, it’s gelato. Made with local dairy and produce, the flavours that come out of this little shop are wild. A spicy chocolate, cheeseboard, corn-on-the-cob type of wild. Officially reopened, you can drop by the Dundas West storefront and grab yourself a sweet treat to go.

Address: 1418 Dundas Street West

Bang Bang

Bang Bang has some unreal flavours — ranging from Soybean Walnut to Avocado, plus everything in between. Of course, we’d be remiss not to mention that you must pair your sweet treat with one of the spot’s egg waffle cones, cinnamon buns, or giant, gooey cookies, in order to get the most out of the experience.

They’re open for takeout, but keep your distance from other people, people.

Address: 93 Ossington Avenue
Phone: 647-348-1900

This ice cream is different for one reason: custard. It’s made with custard. Creamy, refreshing, bursting with fresh flavour, and made with no artificial preservatives or stabilizers, you can preorder pints of this sinfully good dessert online for pickup at Empire Espresso — keep an eye on their Instagram account for weekly drops on Thursdays. 

Address: 668 College Street
