Sudden Inexplicable Craving for a Banana Split

It does seem odd, but I really want one.

I could go to Dairy Queen, but I'd like something a bit more upscale.

Not a big desserts guy, so I have no idea which ice cream shoppes in town offer this. Would prefer to sit in the space and eat, not try and transport it around somewhere else.

    1. I like Caffe Demetre for decadent ice-cream things-and-stuff. They have several Toronto locations. Unfortunately, they also have a hugely annoying web site so I'm not bothering to link.

        Wouldn't matter if you had linked.

        "Why Can't I see the inside contents of your menu?

        Due to world-wide internet piracy, we have no other alternative but to limit the actual contents of our menu selections to protect our trademark and other proprietary marks. "

        Still, they are convenient to me, so maybe I will start there. I think I will do a once a weekend banana split tour and post results somewhere.

          found these on google image search


        Dutch Dreams is totally delicious. I loved the ice cream there and the banana split was honestly one of the most awesome things I've had. Enjoy.

            I've never seen an eating area at Dutch Dreams, do they have one?

              Yup, beyond the counter there's a little seating area.

        1. i love banana splits and have yet to find a good one.

          so far the most satisfying has been sicilian sidewalk cafe.

          oddfellows and tom's dairy freeze we're totally disappointing.

          honeslty though, i think i'd prefer a dairy queen one to those.

          1. i'd try coldstone creamery. i noticed it on the menu, it would likely be very yummy.
