The top 10 vegan soft serve ice cream in Toronto

Vegan soft serve ice cream in Toronto is more plentiful than you think. As it turns out, eliminating milk or other dairy products from the cool summer treat doesn't result in anything less satisfying. In fact, some might suggest this version is even better than the original.

Here are my picks for the top vegan soft serve ice cream in Toronto.

Globally Local

Little Italy's totally vegan fast food joint offers up the chance to cap off your meal with a coconut soft serve. These cones melt much less quickly than a typical vanilla cone and have a lovely sweet pop of coconut flavour.
