As the weather begins to get warmer, the treat everyone looks for is ice cream. Vaughan has some of the best places to get a scoop all summer long! But if you’re like my family, any time of the year is ice cream weather! Here are ten of the best ice cream spots in the Vaughan area:
Old Firehall Confectionery
In the heart of the Kleinburg Village, you’ll find this cute ice cream shop. They serve delicious Kawarthas ice cream, cookie ice cream sandwiches and soft serve. With an abundance of toppings to choose from this is the ultimate ice cream experience.
Yup, you guessed it, this shop has gelato! This delicious Italian treat is light, creamy and comes in a variety of flavours. Gelato Gelato is actually a pizzeria but is definitely known for their gelato, especially during these warmer months.
Ice Cream Patio
This is another restaurant with amazing gelato. Have some after a bite to eat or just get the sweet treat to-go. This is one of my personal favourite spots to get a cup of gelato, and I highly recommend stopping by any time of the year!
If you are looking for a traditional scoop of ice cream this is NOT the place for you! This trendy shop in Vaughan Mills has ice cream in interesting flavours and colours that are definitely instagram-worthy! Their soft serve comes in flavours such as coconut with activated charcoal, purple yam, matcha and more which are served inside activated charcoal-infused cones. If you’re adventurous with food or just want to try something new, head to iHalo Krunch!
Another wonderful gelato shop is La Paloma. They have a few locations and too many flavours to count! This gelato shop has its flagship store in Woodbridge that has a line out the door almost every summer evening. It is most definitely THE gelato shop to check out this summer!
Red Bean Waffle House
This shop has the cutest fish shaped waffle cones. This guppy fish shaped cone is a classic Korean street food that is filled with two ice cream flavours of your choice. To try a delicious Korean treat on the go in Vaughan, stop by Red Bean and try their signature waffle cone.
Calling all chocoholics, if chocolate is practically running through your veins, this is the place for you! From salted caramel to 70% dark chocolate, there is a flavour for every chocolate ice cream connoisseur! If you thought that this shop couldn’t get any better, there are vegan options too, including sorbet and slush. For ice cream, slush, bowls and milkshakes, head to Chocolats Favoris!
ROC Ice Cream
This ice cream shop just opened on March 20th! Check out this new store this summer and try their soft serve ice cream that is “deliciously dipped” in melted Toblerone and Belgium chocolate. Every time an ice cream is purchased from this shop, a portion of the proceeds goes to SickKids Hospital. Stop by, get a scoop and support a great cause!
There are many cafes in Vaughan that have delectable ice cream and gelato, but Pronto Cafe has some of the creamiest gelato in the city. Stop by this authentic Italian bakery if you’re in Vaughan and craving the taste of gelato or a cup of espresso.
Happy Days Ice Cream Parlour
Located just outside of Vaughan, in Bolton this ice cream shop has so much to offer! Their pastel colours and bunny mascot are perfect for kids. They have over 30 flavours of ice cream including sugar free and dairy free, frozen yogurt, dog friendly and more! Happy Days has something for the whole family.
