So, after having our car battery replaced by the friendly Battery World attendant, who proceeded to inform us about the delicious lunch he had just had - from the new-ish ice-cream parlour/diner just a few doors down - we had no real other option but to immediately 'whip' down and make sure he wasn't fibbing. That he certainly wasn't!
Furnished favourably with a lake-view bench table at the shop front - this ideally located, retro, perhaps 'happy days' infused ice-creamery (which boasts of 140 different ice-cream flavours, offered on a rotating basis of course... all except for a few mainstays) had our tastebuds jubilantly jet skiing about - the very second we spied the imaginative ice-cream collection: pavlova, salted caramel, redskin, bubble gum, licorice, honey and rosemary, strawberry swirl... which one? Or what about the plum and strawberry sorbet? We were efficiently rescued by the obliging shop attendant who was all too quick at the ready to offer us a taste test.
Mmm, after much deliberation - we settled on a strawberry swirl waffle cone and a lemon meringue thick shake ($12 total). Next time - we might just throw a couple of hot dogs or nachos or hot rolls into the mix.
Yum. If you have a sweet regard for homemade ice-cream (with all but a couple of their flavours containing no added flavours or preservatives) - put Greg and Audrey's on your next 'sundae' stroll along Toronto Foreshore with ice-cream to-do list.
Oh, and if you can't get a park out the front, there's a roundabout at either end of the street - which could make for easier and safe parking.
* Grab an extra serviette. You know why. It's inevitable.
