Good list. There's also Baker Bots at
Bloor/Ossington which is owned by Bang Bang and while busy, does not have nearly as long lines as Bang Bang.

Also worth mentioning is BeGood - they make gelato sandwiches and are at the Brickworks and Wynchwood markets on the weekend. I think they pop up a few other places around town as well.

Wanted to add Baby O'Donuts out in North Etobicoke in the, umm, "weathered" Woodbine Mall in the Fantasy Fair area. They sell original full-sized vanilla-on-belgian-waffle sandwiches for about 4 bucks. If you're ever in the mall looking for wigs, knock-off gadgets, or 80's clothing you should stop by that Donut place and grab that ice cream sandwich.

Home Baking Co. On Bloor near lansdowne beats at least half these imposters on cookie and ice cream hands down. What a sham(e)!

Red Bench pricing is wrong. $4 for half sandwich, $6 for full. Also, they do not use ice cream, not soft serve yogurt for their sandwiches.
