Apple Pie in Ice Cream?...Where?

Lazar Aug 1, 2007 06:40 AM

Monday, a friend and myself decided that we wanted ice cream, and I suggested my favourite place Il Gelatiere (yes, yes, I am an addict...we've all read that post...let's move on shall we?). I completely forgot that they are closed on Monday, and thus began the great search for the next best scoop.

My friend heard from someone at her work that there was a place in the East end of T.O. that apparently takes ice cream and apple pie and mixes them together. We did a mad driving search, but as the hour was getting late we ended up at St.Clair ice cream...which features what seems like a generic version of Baskin Robbins. It was ok, just nothing special.

But my friend put the bug in my ear, and know I need to know where this place is. Apparently, it is not just apple pie, they also do a variety of different pies, and they also make their own ice cream. So, if anyone knows of this mythical place, please let me know...I would dearly love to try it.

    You may want to try Ed's Real Scoop ice cream, 2224 Queen St. East (at Victoria Park in the Beaches).

    He makes everything from scratch, using all natural ingredients, real fruit, and yes, he does carry an "apple pie" ice cream. I'm also a big fan of the creme brulee, and chocolate and peanut butter. It's just an awesome place. Follow the smell of the homemade waffle cones and you won't miss it!

        Not familiar with the area. Where's a good place for parking near Ed's?

          usually I just park on the street wherever I can find a spot.

            Ed's is an awesome spot! I am a big fan :)

            Just so you know Ed's is located just at Beech and Queen (West of Victoria Park). Hungryabbey is right, your main option is on street parking. IF you really want to walk down Queen there is a Green P parking lot just by Kew Gardens and it is about a 10-15 minute walk away.

            If it is the apple pie specifically that you are interested in I would call to see if they have it. He does tend to change his flavours from time to time and some of them are entirely seasonal.

            Enjoy!

              So....then it is Ed's that has the local version of the apple pie ice cream?

                I thought it was, but I just confirmed. Toronto Life did an article that mentioned that ice cream specifically. I haven't tried it but I am sure it is wonderful!

          this is a bit farther off from what you're looking for but you might be interested in trying the marble slab in yorkville.

          they have an apple n' spice flavour http://www.marbleslab.com/products/fl... you might like and i believe it operates like cold stone.

            Can you provide the exact location in Yorkville for Marble Slab? I've tried the website but for Toronto it just says "TBA." Many thanks.

            Hollywood Gelato at Bayview/Manor makes a Key Lime Pie flavour with real pie chunks, and they do Carrot Cake and Pumpkin Pie in fall. never had apple though...can't wait to hunt it out myself!

                Not exactly pie and ice cream, but... Zippie Cafe on Queen West at Roncesvalles does these amazing waffles, and as topping she takes ice cream and various flavourings and cuts them together to serve on top of the waffle. We had an apple sundae in which she combined apple pie filling, vanilla ice cream and graham wafer crumbs, all chopped together. It was so good.

                  Further east, there's Slicker's in Bloomfield (Prince Edward County, just south of Belleville). They make an Apple Pie ice cream which contains the remains of real apple pies. I haven't been to Ed's or Hollywood in Toronto, but Slicker's makes the best ice cream I've had outside of Italy. Worth the drive, if you're in the area.
