This is the second summer in Toronto where the ice cream sandwich is the go to treat to cool off. A lot of places are putting them out including Moo Milk Bar in the beaches, Fika in Kensington Market and The Big Chill on College West (click here to see our review), but it's the decadent sandwiches at Bakerbots' that will really melt your heart.
What's different about Bakerbots is they leave the hard decisions in your hands. Trying to choose which cookie/ice cream combo to create (you can get a half ($4) or full sandwich ($6.50) with two different kinds of ice cream and two different cookies) can make you sweat (at least it did for us). The impressive list of homemade ice cream flavours just makes the situation worse. Some of the flavours include - Sam James espresso, Bellwoods stout, burnt toffee, cinnamon toast, nocciola, London fog, malted sesame, lemon meringue, PB and grape jelly, banana pudding and dairy free raspberry and chocolate. Thankfully samples are welcomed.
There are a few different cookies to try - ginger molasses, captain peanut, chocolate, the everything, birthday and oatmeal.
What we recommend is start off with half a sandwich, take a seat on one of the benches outside, and after demolishing it off if you feel like you want another, just head back in and start all over again.
Bakerbots is open from Tuesday to Sunday. They also sell pies, cupcakes, cakes and tarts.
