Just so you don't think I fell off the face of the earth (though it has felt like I fell off this past week) I ventured all the way into Toronto to get some ice cream and photograph it for you.
Though this is actually pomegranate sherbet - not that you can tell underneath all the whipped cream and fruit. There is even a home made waffle piece for scooping.
There is always a line up outside this place. I know, because I used to live just up the street. They are open until late (1am) and many summer evenings the line could be snaking around the corner. People will wait an hour to get inside. And once inside, the choices seem almost endless. As does the kitschy decoration. There are so many toys and tiles and pictures and Dutch stuff that they are hanging from the ceiling and on every inch of wall space. It certainly gives you something to look at while you are eating, or waiting to be served.
And these colourful milk pails provide some fun much needed extra seating.
Really, I did this just for you.
