1. iHalo Krunch

iHalo’s ube and charcoal coconut twist soft serve is so good, you’ll cry tears of joy.

P.S. don’t be freaked out by your next number two if you eat the charcoal flavour.

You can grab your cone and head across the street to Trinity Bellwoods Park, or just eat it inside the shop because your ice cream might not make it on a hot day.

2. Fugo Desserts

Fugo is another dessert spot that offers Asian-inspired ice creams, and they also offer mini donuts.

Their Thai iced tea soft serve is my fave, and their Cookie Monster cone is pretty awesome as well.

LOCATION: 205 Dundas St. West | Website


Bang Bang Ice Cream & Bakery in Toronto

3. Bang Bang Ice Cream & Bakery

You’re better off visiting Bang Bang during off times, because the lineups can get pretty long (especially during the summer).

PanPan Noodle Bar is the Spot for Wuhan Noodles in Toronto

I’ve tried a bunch of flavours over the years, and the avocado and lychee raspberry flavours are by far my most favourite!

If you’re in the mood for a filling treat, grab your ice cream in the Hong Kong waffle or a cookie sandwich.

LOCATION: 93 Ossington Ave. | Website


Kekou Gelato in Toronto

4. Kekou Gelato

I love Kekou with all my heart.

Although I’d love to try new flavours, I pretty much always stick to either the Hong Kong milk tea or Vietnamese coffee flavours.

If you’re in the mood for bubble tea, they’ve got that as well!

They’ve also got vegan ice cream options for my vegan friends out there.

LOCATION: 394 Queen St. West | Website


Wong's Ice Cream in Toronto

5. Wong’s Ice Cream

This East End gem serves up Asian-inspired ice cream flavours you never would’ve imagined.

Think boozy egg tart and White Rabbit (yes, to my fellow Asian friends, those little candies we used to eat growing up).

LOCATION: 617 Gerrard St. East | Website


Ed's Real Scoop in Toronto

6. Ed’s Real Scoop

Ed’s is a small-batch ice cream shop that serves up some of the best ice cream in Toronto.

Stop by one of their four locations and grab a scoop, or feel free to pick up a whole pint (or two – I always do).

Their burnt marshmallow ice cream flavour is heaven on earth.

LOCATION: Various locations | Website


Summer's Ice Cream in Toronto

7. Summer’s Ice Cream

Enjoy homemade ice creams at Summer’s Ice Cream in the heart of Yorkville.

They’ve been around since the 80’s, and their ice cream flavours are v good.

You can even find their ice cream pints at some grocery stores around the GTA.

Dutch Dreams in Toronto

8. Dutch Dreams

Dutch dreams is literally an ice cream shop filled with Dutch dreams.

If you want an epic cone for your Instagram feed, this ice cream spot in Toronto’s St. Clair West neighbourhood is the place to visit.

Their pancake and waffle cones are made from recipes that have been passed down for generations, and their ice cream is all Kosher.

LOCATION: 36 Vaughan Rd. | Website


Roselle Desserts in Toronto, Ontario

9. Roselle Desserts

Roselle is actually more of a bakery and dessert shop, but they’ve got fantastic soft serve made in-house.

They change up their soft serve flavours every so often, but their earl grey flavour white chocolate pearls and lemon filling is famous and a must for tea lovers!

LOCATION: 362 King St. East | Website


Momofuku Milk Bar in Toronto, Ontario

10. Milk Bar

Hidden on the second floor of Momofuku is Milk Bar, a NYC-based bakery with delicious confections created by pastry chef Christina Tosi.

You’ll find the soft serve machine at the front of the restaurant though, and they switch up the flavours every now and then.

LOCATION: 190 University Ave. | Website

Tsujiri Toronto

11. Tsujiri

Nothing beats matcha ice cream in Asia, but in my opinion, Tsujiri is as close as it gets in Toronto.

I like it way better than other places I’ve tried in the city.

Their hojicha soft serve is also v delicious.

LOCATION: Various locations | Website


Sweet Jesus Ice Cream in Toronto

12. Sweet Jesus

You’ve probably already been here, but if you haven’t, you seriously need to check Sweet Jesus out.

Although they’re probably overrated, they’ve still got the most Insta-worthy cones.
