When it comes to ice cream, Toronto has plenty of good options, and they go well beyond the names everybody knows like Sweet Jesus or Ed's Real Scoop

Here are my picks for the ice cream in Toronto you need to try.

Maple Leaf Dairy

Also known as St. Clair Ice Cream, this Danforth stalwart boasts a rotating menu of flavours like red velvet cheesecake, salted caramel, and cotton candy.

Cosmic Treats

This Kensington Market vegan joint makes coconut-based ice cream that's dairy free just like the rest of their menu. Go basic with scoops in a cone or indulge in a banana split or cupcake sundae.
