The line up is worth it. Love the sorbets and gelato almost more than the ice cream! My fav is the cassis sorbet. The smell of the freshly made waffle cones is also worth the visit!

The line up is just part of the overall experience ... amazing ice cream in flavours you never imagined. Summer isn't complete without a few visits to Ed's.

Great first experience at Ed's Real Scoop. The ice cream is authentic and fresh and the staff are friendly and allow sampling. The line moved very quickly. The best part though was at the bottom of the waffle cone is a marshmallow! It was a delicious and practical addition to the cone as no ice cream dripped out of the... More

A childhood favourite that still holds up today! Try their burnt marshmallow or their Tanzanian dark chocolate.

If you appreciate really good ice cream and gelato, this is the place for you. They have creative flavours made from all natural ingredients. An institution on Queen Street that I highly recommend.

I went to the Leslieville location on a summer night... theres always a lineup, but it moves fairly quickly. Theres a vast variety of ice cream and gelato flavours, loved the burnt marshmallow and chocolate. Didn't try any other flavours. You can take home pints of ice cream, and I believe I saw some cakes in the fridge.

Absolutely delish! Tastes like REAL ice cream and oh man...burnt marshmallow <3 It's great in the evening after a long walk in the beaches or during the day to beat the heat. There may be a small lineup, but it moves fast!

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
