Toronto just got an irresistible parlour to indulge in speciality soft-serve ice cream. Sweet Jesus, by the culinary masterminds of La Carnita, opened it’s doors this week and what has already become a crowd pleaser judging by the long queues, even with TIFF celebrities.
Soft-serve ice cream options here are anything but the chocolate-vanilla standard. Think whimsical and nostalgic with variations like Lemon Coconut Cream Pie (sour lemon curd, toasted coconut crumble), Krusty the Cone that resembles The Simpson’s quirky clown character (cotton candy, fresh ground sprinkles, candy sauce), and Campfire S’mores (burnt marshmallow, graham crackers, and chocolate sauce). This will surely please the inner kid in you.
There’s also a lineup of ice pops, espresso-based drinks, and some churros for your snacking pleasure. You’ll probably succumb to the gluttony here as we did and its totally worth it.
