searching for the best milkshakes in Toronto

I'm looking for the best milkshake in Toronto.
Can anyone help me with recomendations and location...?
I have had many a shake in T.O. Some of the best have been in diner-type establishments. But I would have to say that the best I have had thus far, is from the Garage Sandwich Company on the East Side of Church, just North of Wellesley.
I think what makes them so good is that they use Greg's Ice Cream. Actually, talking about that, you could even try Greg's Ice Cream Store at Spadina & Bloor (SW corner in the JCC). I don't know if they make shakes, but worth checking out.
Also, I have always enjoyed the shakes at Lakeview lunch.
If you find any new places be sure to post them.
re: Avocado Queen
I like the oddball variety of shakes you can order at both Lick's and Greg's. A ginger shake at Greg's was the closest I've come in these parts to an old Detroit-area standby, the Boston Cooler (vanilla and Vernor's). Thinking about trying green tea shake sometime...
Lick's recommendation - go to the Yonge-Eg location when the staff's having a quiet night - twice, I've been given recommendations that turned out great (like mango yogurt and Sprite).
For a malty, chocolate milkshake, check out the Double D on Queen at Broadview. It is awesome.
