Bretts Ice Cream Toronto

Brett's Ice Cream

Brett’s Ice Cream combines the best of both worlds, with artisanal Konery cones (including gluten-free options) from Brooklyn and Belly ice cream from right here in Ontario.

With a name like Brett’s you might not expect such a sleek and feminine operation, but Brett Young is actually the female owner who’s at the helm of the operation along with her fiance.

Bold graphic touches and a vintage gumball machine make give this place the iconic feel of a great neighbourhood ice cream shop.

Hand-rolled Konery cake batter cones are preservative-free and made with fresh herbs, spices, natural extracts and gourmet ingredients.

The Belly ice cream is similarly all-natural, preservative-free and made with all Ontario ingredients.

They’ve also got dreamy cranberry raspberry and blackberry lemon sorbets as well as a blueberry lavender froyo that goes excellently with a red velvet cake batter cone.

Other suggested combos include brownie chocolate with a hazelnut cone, cinnamon bun and cinnamon brown sugar and chocolate dipped strawberry and French vanilla.

They also do shakes ($7) and we grab a velvety salted caramel on recommendation, drizzled with caramel and topped with whipped cream.

There are healthier options too like fruit parfaits ($8) and sorbet sodas ($7), sorbet blended with soda water and topped with fresh fruit.

There are fruit infused iced teas ($3.25) in flavours like pink lemonade as well, and hot organic Lemon Lily tea is available for $2 - $2.50.

To satisfy any last lingering hint of a sweet tooth there are Desmond & Beatrice cookies in flavours like unicorn, cookies and cream and vegan chocolate chip.

The airy all-white interior decorated with cute little plants has a long bench against the window facing the street where streetcars ding past and customers often gather outside with their cones.

A park right across the street would also be a great destination to savour the dessert here.
