where are all the ice-cream joints in toronto
there used to be fines in atrium, swensons in eaton centre and honest ed had one too.
besides 50 flavours which has succumbed to mediocrity- where's the ice cream????

  1. - Greg's at Bloor and Spadina.
    - Solferino on Wellington, east of Yonge.
    - La Paloma, St. Clair, just west of Lansdowne.

    Here's a good list:

    1. Kensington Market Organic Ice Cream at 66 Kensington Avenue (at Baldwin).

        I think Kensington shut down at that location, didn't it?

          yup, they're now off of augusta tucked away into back alley grill. however i noticed they're now "missing", i think they've shutdown for the winter season.

      2. Hollywood Gelato, Bayview and Manor.

        1. If you're interested in ice cream, not gelato, then these are the choices I'm aware of:

          Ed's Real Scoop (Beaches)
          Greg's (Spadina & Bloor)
          Kensington Market Organic (Kensington Market)
          Summer's (Yorkville)

            I hope I dont start too much controversy.. but which one is better, eds or gregs?

              I think everyone is different. I personally prefer Ed's, but then it is my home turf. Having said that, Ed still makes his stuff in the shop whereas Greg's has gotten quite a bit bigger and (I beleive) has his stuff done offsite. I think they tend to do different flavours from each other so just keep that one in mind!

                hm yah I guess it just depends what neighbourhood your in at the time

                1. re: Otonabee

                  Greg's does interesting flavours, but for me it does not taste like high quality ice cream. I personally do not go out of my way for Greg's. Ed's was better when I tried it (once, a few years back).

            2. I second Greg's. Try the toasted marshmallow flavour. There is nothing like it anywhere!
