Toronto's gelato food truck is opening a storefront

Toronto's popular three-wheel gelato truck Bar Ape is expanding its reach by opening up a retail location.

Instead of searching city streets for James Carnavale's eye-catching Piaggio Ape vehicle to score a gourmet gelato bar, you'll now be able to grab one any time (during opening hours) at 283 Rushton Road.

Along with these gelato bars (or gelato-on-a-stick), you'll be able to try Bar Ape's new gelato soft serve. On Instagram, Carnavale's been teasing delicious-sounding flavours such as blueberry sorbetto with sweet milk.

The Bar Ape store opens this Friday at 2 p.m. It looks like it's going to an epic ice cream-filled season up in the 6ix.
