Where would you go in TO for a traditional ice cream sundae?

Kitchen Imp Feb 18, 2010 08:43 AM

Once in a great while I love a sinfully laden ice cream sundae, and today is one of those times. I mean the old-fashioned kind with hot fudge, caramel, whipped cream, and a cherry. A banana split might even do the trick. The rub is that I want it in a sundae glass, not a paper cup, and with good ice cream and real ingredients, so Baskin-Robbins is out. Can anyone help? Anywhere in Toronto is fine - will drive for an excellent excess fix.

        I agree with Dutch Dreams -- but they are closed for the winter.

      Just in case you want an alternative (I'm not arguing with Dutch Dreams)... Demetre used to have some pretty decent ice cream confection (no paper cups!). Although I have to admit that I haven't been there in quite a long while.

      I think they have a couple of locations (Danforth, Eglinton).

        Ed's and Greg's can give you the sundae, with decent ingredients, but not the glass or a comfortable place in which to eat it :-(

            Dutch Dreams may be open but Greg's seems closed for the winter.

              Dutch Dreams is definitely what you want. Ed's and Greg's have good ice cream, but not the kitsch.

              Demetre's is awful! Their ice cream is comparable to Chapman's.

                I so agree, Demetre's is overrated and overpriced!!

            A very late followup, but thanks to all who replied - Dutch Dreams did the trick. The only catch was that the person who made the sundae put fruit all over the top of it (kiwi and strawberries on a hot fudge sundae?), but otherwise it was exactly the exuberant pile of excessive sugar that I needed to get through yet another long winter night.

              They always put chopped fruit on top of their ice cream, even on the cones - must be the Dutch touch??

                You can always ask them to hold the fruit... I used to in the winter. Now the fruit is in season, so its really tasty.
