It may be getting chilly out, but the sun is still shinning and with the recent Day Light Savings time change, there is no real reason why ice-creams and crepes should not be part of a special weekend diet. After all, when is it ever too cold to indulge in what we like?
It is as such that on a cooler weekend, I came to discover a unique spot in Bloor West Village called Simply Yummy. Tucked away in a little courtyard near the Windermere and Bloor West intersection, Simply Yummy delights crowds with delicious concoctions using only Greg’s ice-cream & Kawartha’s Dairy.
The ice-creams, made with 100% milk and cream, are the perfect mix of yummy, sweet and smooth in one’s palate. Which is why Simply Yummy partners with these two famous manufacturers to bring quality ingredients to their shop. They also specialize in gluten-free options that are part of their smoothie and sorbet selections.
In addition to ice-cream, owner Amanda Jasquith, wanted to bring to Toronto a bit of Paris from her own traveling experiences by introducing Crepes to the shop. I had the pleasure of indulging in their chocolate crepe and was quickly remembered of what a true crepe should taste like. A thin layer of freshly made batter that is cooked to order and it’s not overly sweet. The test? See-through pockets of what’s inside the crepe. I call it the perfect thickness.
On the same tune of all things sweet and delish, Simply Yummy also offers the option to take home a full cake of ice-cream or pre-order for that special occasion. Again, playing on the notion that fresh quality ingredients should matter, these cakes are made with the same ice-cream purveyors, giving them a unique un-matched taste.
Until next time Foodies!
