The Best Ice Cream Sandwich in Toronto

The best ice cream sandwich in Toronto stuffs a scoop or two of ice cream between treats that are equally delicious on their own. A couple of freshly-baked cookies, donuts, and even cinnamon buns are enough to hold this hand-sized indulgence together.

Here are the best ice cream sandwiches in Toronto.


Bang Bang Ice Cream and Bakery

Bang Bang Ice Cream and Bakery

An obligatory summertime visit to this Ossington ice creamery yields the most satisfying results, namely their famous ice cream cookie sandwiches. Each comes with two hulking scoops of ice cream like their famous London Fog.

Craig's Cookies

Craig's Cookies

Craig Pike’s stuffed cookies are already decadent enough on their own. Use two of them as bookends for big chunks of ube or orange creamsicle ice cream supplied by Knockout and you have sugar overload. Head to any of the four locations, like the original in Parkdale.


Bakerbots

Bakery owner Rosanne Pezzelli has been making one of the city’s foremost ice cream sammies for over a decade at this Bloorcourt business. The older sibling of Bang Bang doesn’t stop at cookies, though: they also do cinnamon buns sandwiches.

Booyah

Aside from their cookie sandwiches, this St. Clair West ice cream shop also offers something called Sweet Pockets. Cold ice cream comes together with hot, sweet brioche buns. Add nutella and icing sugar on top to take it over the edge. 


Ed's Real Scoop

Ed's Real Scoop

A cookie ice cream sandwich is an easy way to eat your way through Ed’s long list of all-natural, small-batch ice cream flavours. Visit the original in the Beaches or go to Leslieville, Roncy or Mimico for cookies baked in-house.


The Big Chill

The Big Chill

This beloved retro ice creamery in Little Italy has over 30 flavours of ice cream on deck at all times. Try their Banana Fudge or colourful varieties like Mickey’s Birthday Cake between two cookies.

Wong's Ice Cream

If you grew up eating Skyflakes, run to East Chinatown’s popular ice cream shop for a nostalgic treat. Wong’s is sandwiching strawberry mochi ice cream and house-made chocolate brownie between two pieces of this classic cracker.


Good Behaviour Ice Cream

Good Behaviour Ice Cream

The Christie outpost of this ice creamery is serving their ice cream inside house-made donuts. The combination of cold scoops between warm and crispy dough is the ultimate summer snack.

Summer's Ice Cream

Summer's Ice Cream

Yorkville’s summer landmark has been serving ice cream on Cumberland since 1984. Their ice cream sandwiches use cookies from local bakery Sweet Flour. Add an extra 75 cents to get it rolled in sprinkles.
