Amazing gelato! I would eat it everyday if it was calorie free!!! Definitely go check it out. My favourite of all the gelato and ice cream places in the city. They have a wide selection of flavours and all are very authentic. You might think you were in Italy!!

Just a couple of blocks north of Toronto's famous St. Lawrence Market, this little place at the corner of Adelaide & Jarvis had caught my eye on numerous driving trips along Jarvis. In early July 2015, I FINALLY visited the Market and needed a cool treat afterwards -- so I made a quick jaunt there. They have some interesting flavours,... More

Had discovered it for gelato and was happy to rate it a 5 last year. Had the opportunity to return and try the pizza. Not a fan of pizza normally but the funghi pizza is the best I ever had- including pizza from Italy . Even returned -and it was just as good. And the gelato - new flavor -... More

After 2 weeks in the US is was just great to find somewhere serving a good espresso. The gelato however, was outstanding. Traditional Italian flavours complimented by North American favourites. We did not get to try the soup or sandwiches but those we observed were eating heartily. A very enjoyable experience with a great location by the market.

Out for a stroll and came across G for Gelato and since it was a hot day and it said it was the best Gelato in Toronto, we decided to give it a try. Plenty of flavours on offer and with great service it was a good choice. Ice cream was delicious.

Friendly staff, good coffee and great gelato. G's has so many flavours to choose from and they are always changing it up and not afraid to try new flavour ideas. The perfect location too.... Grab a Gelato and head to St James Park to relax. Doesn't get much better than this!

G for Gelato has great gelato in a great location on Adelaide St E. Walk up to the register, pay for your ideal size, get a paper ticket, and then time to make the tough decisions.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
