Soft serve is back in season at Super Serve! From the classic chocolate vanilla twist to rotating vegan flavours, this spot at the corner of Dundas and Kensington Ave., has something for everyone. Monthly features include creative combos like Earl Grey and hibiscus twist with pineapple compote and cornflake pretzel crunch! New to their 2024 menu is the cookie serve: the same delicious soft serve with the addition of an in-house made chocolate chip cookie. Pictured is vanilla soft serve with salted caramel sauce and a chocolate chip cookie.

Luanne Ronquillo started Ruru Baked six years, selling (and selling out of) pints of delicious custard-based ice cream, before opening the first brick-and-mortar location at Bloor and Lansdowne. For those not in the ice cream know, custard-based ice cream — also known as French style — is denser and creamier than regular ice cream, which usually tends to be more on the lighter and airier side. The menu now boasts more than 70 unique and delicious flavours, featuring outlandish combinations that work remarkably well. New on the line-up this year is Vegan Tofu Fa: inspired by the traditional Chinese dessert, this vegan soy milk ice cream is swirled with  brown sugar ginger syrup; Choco Caramel Crunch a gluten-free dark chocolate ice cream with luscious caramel swirls and crunchy/melty bits of sponge toffee. Sticky Toffee Cake: brown sugar ice cream dotted with rich brown sugar date cake and extra sticky toffee sauce; and Sea Salt + Gianduja: lightly salted sweet cream blended with velvety gianduja, a decadent mix of hazelnut and chocolate inspired by travels to Italy.

Naturally dyed with grapes, turmeric and blue spirulina, it’s worth a try next time you swing by!
