Burnt Marshmallow is phenomenal, but you can't go wrong with anything at Ed's! The freezer on the left when you enter has the pre-scooped ice cream in a container - can save a little time if the flavour you want is there!

Best little secret on Queen East. So many options, such nice staff. But most of all - their gelato and ice cream is all home made and the best in the city (and it's a big city).

When the weather is nice, there's always a huge line but, the ice cream and gelato are well worth it! I love the pumpkin ice cream that's available in October. My favourite ice cream flavours are "creme brûlée" and "roasted marshmallow". They're both amazing. Oh, and make sure to have a freshly made cone!!

Ed's is a fabulous local business that offers a wonderfully creative selection of ice cream, gelato, and other gourmet treats. Both locations are in lovely stoll-worthy neighbourhoods. Highly recommended for everything from a date night to a family outing.

This is a local small business that does a great job on all counts. Try the gelato -- especially the hazelnut gelato! Or try the affogato con gelato al cioccolato (espresso over a scoop of chocolate gelato). And if they ever get avocado gelato, I'll have to tell them, "I gotta have an avocado gelato affogato"

Ed's ice cream may be a little on the expensive side but it is well worth it. The ice cream is smooth and creamy and no matter which flavour you chose, is full of flavour. You can taste the cream in every bite. My favorite is the white chocolate raspberry. You taste white chocolate at the beginning and raspberry on... More

Smooth textured ice cream/gelato. Always a line-up in the summer after a little league game or a late night craving. The 'Burnt Marshmallow' actually tastes like the namesake. When they make fresh waffle cones in the store, that sweet smell draws you in every time.

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.
