Yum. Let's start with this. Small batch, interesting flavours and textures. Great range in both.Gelato and Sorbetto (non dairy). Too many choices to highlight one - go, try a couple... you'll thank yourself (and me!)

Grab your favorite flavor or two and head down for a nice walk on the boardwalk. Can't beat it. The lines are long but the service is fast and friendly.

Love both locations, Beaches location always seems busier....maybe because store is a little smaller. Either way, staff and ice cream are great. We make one or two trips each summer from Whitby just for ice cream.

Super friendly place to get a sweet treat. Try the blood orange Gelato for something tart and special. Everything is good here, they have take home pints and you can order custom ice cream cakes.

The staff at Ed's are always friendly and accommodating. The gelato flavours are delicious, but then so is the ice cream. I have a hard time making up my mind what to have. You can ask for a sample of a flavour to 2 to help you decide. Don;t forget to ask for your free topping. If you don;t want... More

Wanted a good thick milkshake and read about Ed's. It was very delicious! I also got a pint of butter pecan my favorite and it too was amazing. Also brought a jar of Carmel sauce and one of the best ever, not real sweet but so good in latte!!!

The flavors are endless, the choices dizzying, the gelato will leave you clamoring for more. Friendly service, great products. Do yourself a favor: go to the beaches and stop at Ed's

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood 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.
