Sweet Jesus Eastside

Sweet Jesus is expanding to Ottawa

The Toronto ice cream gospel is spreading fast. Sweet Jesus, our city's epic soft serve purveyor, is moving east to set up shop in Ottawa's Byward Market.

That's right, Canada's capital will soon be home to the fourth Sweet Jesus location. If you're visiting and want a taste of home, you'll be able to find our locally famous cones at 97 Clarence St., starting on Friday, August 12.

Along with serving up four types of soft serve (chocolate, vanilla, one vegan and one seasonal flavour), this storefront will dole out its signature souped-up ice cream creations, including some that'll be exclusive to the Ottawa area.

This incoming Sweet Jesus has also hired on a local pastry chef who'll whip up cakes and meringues as well as fresh compote and jam for the new storefront.

And back at home, Sweet Jesus's newest Toronto location at Yonge and Eglinton is now open. As is its Snapchat confessional.
