Yummy Cone is a small restaurant that serves up an interesting take on pizza - it's stuffed inside a cone. Capitalizing on a new food trend that's apparently gaining steam in Italy and the US, here you'll find a variety of stuffed cones chock full of ingredients that you would normally find in a pizza.
The Thornhill restaurant is small, with rather limited seating. The choices are pretty straightforward. A large variety of toppings are tightly stuffed into a thin cone-shaped dough, which is then put into a special baking machine. The result is magical: the toppings to bread ratio here far outstrips most pizza slices.
If you've ever yearned for pizza with more content and less carbs, this is for you. You can either get them by themselves ($5.30) or in a combo ($8.10, which comes with a side and a drink).
The house special is the Yummy Cone. It's resplendent with pepperoni, bacon, peppers (green, red, and hot banana), as well as mushrooms and cheese among many other things. It's surprisingly not overwhelming, and the generous helpings of peppers and mushrooms cut through the richness of the cheese.
The Pepperoni cone is also surprisingly rich and extremely cheesy.
The Hot & Spicy Chicken comes with tender chicken and jalapeno and hot banana peppers that provide a spicy kick. Still, it could use more spice although I suppose you can just ask for more hot sauce to heat things up a bit.
The Breakfast Cone is practically bursting at the seams with sausage and bacon, along with cheddar cheese, mozzarella, and the full complement of peppers. It's like having a Denny's breakfast served in a cone. It's very filling and extremely satisfying.
Sides-wise, the onion rings are nice and big here. But really, in my books the fries steal the show. They're pretty much the best thick-cut fries I've had in a long time.
For something a bit unique, add another dollar to your combo to try the Tornado Fries. It's essentially a potato that's peeled in a circular fashion then topped with parmesan cheese and barbecue sauce. It gets cold rather quickly so you better eat it fast.
