The Best Ice Cream in Toronto

The Best Ice Cream in Toronto

The Best Ice Cream in Toronto

The best ice cream in Toronto is the warm-weather treat you need, whether you pine for nostalgic scoops or innovation in a cone. From high-quality soft serve and gelato to regular ice cream in flavours inspired by the season, Toronto has a frozen dessert you'll want to try this summer.

Home to several perennial favourites, Toronto has also seen a rash of new ice cream businesses popping up of late. With such a wealth of creamy treats on offer, including vegan options, you never have to go far to find a refreshing treat when that's the only thing that will do.

Treat yourself to a season of sweet relief with Toronto's best ice cream. Try new flavours, indulge in creative bites, ask for a cup, bubble waffle cone, or cookie sandwich, and find your favourite. Just be warned, ranking one delightful, drippy, cooling confection against another is a near-impossible task.
