Yes, you read that right... and no I am not having ice cream for breakfast! I have been there twice in the last week and each time the food and service is EXCELLENT. Me and my breakfast date have been sharing a bagel with their home-made cream cheese (skip the Philli, their homemade version is so much more tastier!) and their youghurt with granola, berries and hemp seeds.
Today I got the chance to sit on their backyard patio which is so quaint and comfortable with tables and chairs… Continue

I am trying to raise funds for Sick Kids and would like to hold a fundraiser day in the hood. I was planning on holding one in the fall as well. Is there anyone who would be willing to let me use their retail space or does anyone have any suggestions as to where it can be held? Once I have a location I will quickly be asking merchants for merchadise donations in order to hold a raffle on the chosen day. As well there will be face painting, a bake sale and whatever else I… Continue

The garden is open for those who want a flowery space to enjoy ice cream, smoothies, frappes, coffee drinks, ice cream sandwiches, yogurt parfaits, fruit, WHATEVER!

For all those non-dairy fans, we have some tasty sorbets with all natural fruit--no flavouring, just tons of fruit!
Flavours will vary according to fresh fruit we have that day, but you can expect things like mango, strawberry, pineapple, triple berry, lime, lemon, etc. and of course whatever fruit is in season throughout the summer. Will begin experimenting with rich flavours (chocolate, caramel, etc) soon!

Cookie flavours include oatmeal, double chip (white and regular chocolate) and dark chocolate and as for ice cream flavours: the sky's the limit! We can also customize with fillings (marshmallow… Continue
