Funnel Fun on Avenue

Has anyone tried this place? I am puzzled as to why someone would open a place like this during these hardtimes. I drove past today and it was empty.

  1. I was wondering about it too and I also haven't gone. It makes me think of going to the CNE...

      I have to be honest, I had to google to see what a funnel cake actually was. I am on a very strict diet so it will be a while until I can make it in.

      I am very curious to see if it survives because Avenue Road is pittering away slowly.

    2. Surprisingly I walked by last night at around 10:30 pm and the place was about 2/3 full. Could be the novelty factor or perhaps the area needs a casual place for people to hang out later in the evening - not just the McDonalds up the road.

        I think a funnel cake place is a great idea. I look forward to trying it.

      2. It was packed on Sunday as I drove by.
        Let's face it, it's really a donut shop. If they can do a spin on things they could succeed - anyone for Fun-Bits?

        1. I live in the neighbourhood and noticed it was pretty busy on Sunday. I think that they do ice cream, crepes, and other dessert-type things as well...there is really nowhere else in the neighbourhood (other than Baskin-Robbins for ice cream) that serves anything like this. I am hoping to try it out soon!

          1. Hi, where about on Avenue? The only time I have experienced this fine "meal" was at Canada's Wonderland, funnel cakes and rollercoasters are not a match made in heaven!

              Avenue and Melrose - northwest corner.
