Gelato on wheels now available in Toronto
Be Good Gelato is the latest addition to Toronto's competitive market for frozen summer treats. Unlike other gelaterias, however, Be Good is entirely mobile, selling its gelato sandwiches and scoops around town from a hybrid freezer/bicycle contraption. Customers can place orders for delivery anywhere in the area bounded by Bloor, Front, Pape and Bathurst. You can also follow Be Good on Twitter to learn where to find the nifty gelato bike next.
After a quick check on Twitter one afternoon, I easily located Be Good at Yonge-Dundas Square, and enjoyed a delicious (and hefty) sandwich made with smooth vanilla gelato and chewy Sweet Flour chocolate chip cookies ($5). The artisanal gelato is handmade from scratch, and comes in flavours like vanilla, chocolate, cherry, mocha, and seasonal fruits. You can also buy a cup of gelato from the bike for $4. For deliveries, the minimum order is $30. The owners say they are open to making custom flavours (like beer gelato, perhaps?) and catering events.
Toronto has plenty of fine gelato shops, but I'd recommend checking out Be Good Gelato if you're in the mood for embarking on a little gelato treasure hunt around the city. Or, if you're feeling a little lazy and want your dessert to come to you.
