Gelato on Yonge near Davisville

These guys opened in early August, and I guess my blinders were on, because I only noticed them today. The owner is one of the original three partners from Il Gelatiere Artigianale on Mt. Pleasant, the list of flavours is similar, though the execution and recipes are different. I've only tried a couple so far, but the cioccoato con pepperoncino has more kick, and the lime with cilantro is a great cooler. Nice addition to the area.

Note, there is another new ice cream place on Manor, across from La Bamboche. Anyone tried it yet?

  1. Haven't seen either places, but it seems like there are a ton of Gelaterias in the area, all up and down Manor, two new ones (Mad Italian and Gelato) this year!

    ... Might have to do Gelato Tasting III soon...!

    1. The new place on Manor is an outpost of Village Chill. It has similar offerings as the one in Forest Hill - we had the ferrero rocher (wouldn't get it again...the flavour seemed a little fruity) and green tea (good, creamy, and refreshing). I heard the frozen yogurt was supposed to be good, and will try that next time. They have a little bench outside, which is great for people watching.

      1. I've been to the Gelato place north of Davisville 3 times in the last 3 weeks - tried the cioccolato, the nocciola (both terrific, and the equal of gelatos i've had in italy), the brutto ma buono (literally translated 'ugly, but good', after the cookies of the same name - chocolate with almonds and chocolate fudge sauce, i hands down favourite) and the bacio. the bacio was the only one that didn't wow me - it tasted exactly like the baci chocolates, but it wasn't chocolate-y enough for me.
