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.
One wall inquires “What’s the scoop?” in neon.
Hand-rolled Konery cake batter cones are preservative-free and made with fresh herbs, spices, natural extracts and gourmet ingredients.
They come at a $2 premium for a flavour combination unlike the usual ice cream in a familiar plain waffle cone. Flavours include birthday cake and even creamsicle, and there are even a few gluten-free options.
The Belly ice cream is similarly all-natural, preservative-free and made with all Ontario ingredients.
Flavours include chocolate dipped strawberry, cinnamon bun, key lime pie, apple crumble and stout milk chocolate ($5 for a scoop or $7 for two in a waffle or sugar cone or cup).
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.
