There ain’t nothing better than a delicious cone of sweet, sweet ice cream. Although the school year has already begun, summer doesn’t officially end until September 22nd. While we’ve still got warm weather (in the afternoons, at least), you might as well try all these ice cream places, because you probably won’t be doing so until next spring or summer.
These are my favourite ice cream spots in downtown Toronto.
1. Bang Bang Ice Cream & Bakery
This is my all-time favourite ice cream spot in Toronto. I came here several times throughout the summer and tried a bunch of flavours. The avocado and lychee raspberry flavours are my favourites so far! Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos because they’re really only Insta-worthy if you get the HK waffle.

2. Fugo Desserts
I’ve been here twice so far and I plan on coming here as much as I can before the cold weather hits. Both times I’ve been here, I’ve posted photos on social media, and people keep asking me where this place is. I actually like it more than Sweet Jesus. The Thai iced tea soft serve is my fave, and I plan on trying their earl grey soft serve next.

3. Kekou Gelato
I looooooooove Kekou so much. I always get either the Hong Kong milk tea or Vietnamese coffee flavours because they’re amazing. They’ve even got vegan options for anyone who’s vegan.

4. Sweet Jesus
You’ve probably already been here, but if you haven’t, you need to check Sweet Jesus out. Although they’re a bit overrated, they’ve still got the raddest, most Insta-worthy cones. The Red Rapture is my fave – it has everything red velvet in it and red velvet is my life.

Nothing beats matcha ice cream from Asia, but in my opinion, Tsujiri is as close as it gets in Toronto. I like it so much better than the other places I’ve tried (Uncle Tetsu, Tendou Matcha & Dessert). I’m kind of over my matcha phase right now, but if you’re still digging it, check Tsujiri out.
