The Best Gelato in Toronto

Did you just have a delicious meal and now you want to treat yourself to a frozen dessert? Toronto has its fair share of frozen desert locations and some of these spots offer Gelato. Gelato looks similar to ice cream as it has the same appearance, while commonly being a healthier option. Gelato is also known to be ‘softer’ than ice cream when it is eaten. Of course, gelato may not be as popular as ice cream, however, its taste can be just as good if not better.
