Dough TO has existed for some time as a pop-up serving raw cookie dough that's actually safe to eat.
They've done a previous long term pop up in Kensington Market as well as product collabs that have appeared in big chain stores like Sobeys, but the hope is that this location could even become their permanent flagship.
The minimal but baller space reeks of millennial hustle, hundred dollar bill wallpaper facing a selfie mirror and neon feature reading "$ DOUGH DIET $."
Flour is heat treated before inclusion in the cookie dough so you're not eating it raw, and there's no egg in anything.
Offerings are relatively limited with only four cookie dough flavours available at a time, though they often rotate and there's always one regularly-changing vegan option.
Scoops go for $5 for one, $9 for two, served of course with a shot of your choice of almond or two per cent milk on the side. It's your choice, of course, if you want to sip it, shoot it, or dunk tiny spoonfuls of the cookie dough into it (all good options).
A classic chocolate chip flavour is one of the top sellers and typically on offer, a nostalgic rich, sweet buttery base studded with semi-sweet chocolate chips.
A triple chocolate flavour feels like something you'd reach for after being dumped, a very fudgy, comforting cocoa base with white chocolate and dark chocolate chips.
There's actually cake batter extract in a birthday cake flavour with white chocolate chips and sprinkles, so it not only looks colourful and pretty but also has that iconic vanilla "birthday cake" taste.
A vegan flavour today is essentially the same as a chocolate chip dough but with Oreo chunks in it instead, vegan margarine subbed in for butter though the flavour doesn't seem too different at all.
There are also jars available for $10 to take home and eat raw, or even bake—check out their website for instructions.
The dough actually can be baked into cookies, and they do their own stuffed versions here for $3.50 each, showing how the product can also be used as an ingredient.
A "B*tches Love Sprinkles" cookie is soft and thick, has sprinkles and white chocolate and is stuffed with gooey, stretchy, sweet marshmallow.
"Cookies & Cream, Baby" stuffs a puffy chocolate cookie with pieces of Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme bar, a treat almost as nostalgic for me as unbaked cookie dough.
Take care to note, Dough TO is totally cashless.
