Toronto entrepreneur Angela Phung took ice cream season to the next level with her latest venture, Happy Sundae.
Phung, who also operates aka.the store, recently debuted her new dessert boutique to the King West crowd, serving up farm-to-table scoops with fresh and unique toppings. “Happy Sundae is a little happy place located at 85 Portland St. Toronto,” the website reads. “AKA, King West’s newest ice cream dessert heaven, specializing in soft serve ice cream and a wide range of toppings. Whether it’s in a cone or cup, our Sweet Artists are ready to create your next dessert masterpiece because everyday [sic] is a Happy Sundae.”
Of course, in typical Phung fashion, the shop is nothing if not trendy, complete with a graffiti wall and Instagram-worthy floral accents. The decorations serve as the perfect backdrop to each Sweet Art of the Day creation, crafted in sundaes or colourful flavoured cones in flavours like s’mores sundae and orange creamsicle.
Both scoop and soft-serve options are available, with the scoop selection made by Mapton’s Organic Dairy Farm and the soft-serve flavours hand-crafted in-house daily. The soft-serve selection is both dairy-free and gluten-free, as are all of the flavoured cones. And, the Mapton’s offerings are gluten-free and are even made without salt, creating a healthier selection of ice creams for health-conscious visitors this summer season.
The core team at Happy Sundae is comprised of Phung, a chef and a food scientist, who all work together to create what they call magic, taking shape in some of the most unique flavour combinations the city has to offer.
Happy Sundae is located at 85 Portland St.
