Ed's Real Scoop earns its raves by having great ice cream. In a city that has so many good, but not great places to eat in a number of categories, Ed's has carved out a name for itself in one of the more competitive categories in town. They have a branch that is open in the west part of town... More

Pumpkin pie ice cream, need I say more! Nothing says a beautiful fall day like it! It is a very tiny place and very busy but well worth the wait.

We used to live in the Beaches in Toronto and frequented Ed's. Whenever we go back to visit, we make a point of going to Ed's. The pumpkin pie ice cream is a must! All of his flavours are great though, and the waffle cones are amazing. The gelato is also delicious. I wish Ed's would expand outside of Toronto:)

When I just moved in to the neighbourhood I was always curious about the line out the door. Then I tried one of their scoops of french vanilla because by this flavour it is easy to tell the overall quality and ingredients of any ice-cream........ It might seem pricey at first but oh God! was it worth it! Mmmmm. needless... More

Eds Real Scoop rivals many of the gelato stops I made in Italy last year. There's a reason for the lineups out the door on summer nights. Although I've enjoyed all the flavours I've tried so far, I especially like the chili chocolate and also the cherry gelatos. Pumpkin in the fall is good too. Enjoy!

Ed's is amazing for dessert fans who love ice cream. At Ed's, the choice is hard to make between delicious sorberts, gelati and parfait. There's always an interesting, extraordinary flavour, and my favourite is the dark chocolate with chili. Unless you really dig spicy, please just stick to one scoop.

Easily hands down best ice cream. From the basics to the amazing. Tahitian vanilla for my daughter, raspberry for my son. Chocolate coconut macaroon....really. Then my wife had to go back for gelato, yes pistachio, and banana. Too cool, worth it, great service! Well done!

Never had anything from Ed's that disappointed. Try the lemon meringue ice cream if it's available. Nothing like it around! Kids that work there are always super nice.

Don't even look past the gelato. This is great ice cream with super flavours. Between us we tried white chocolate, espresso, mango and pistachio. Great service and a good ability to try flavours before you decide. Excellent

I love ice cream but I hate the aftertaste of chemical, preservative ridden brands. Finding 'real' ice cream void of food colourings and unnecessary ingredients is not that easy but thankfully, Eds Real Scoop hit the mark! The hard scooped ice cream flavours are somewhat traditional with a twist as well as some adventurous flavours such as Burnt Marshmallow, Strawberry... More
