You walk-in, with its quirky oversized counter and shelves, and see boxes of marshmallows stacked to the ceiling high. Then your sense of smell kicks-in, you see the numerous options of hyperdeliciousness ... and then BOOM! ;)😘

Bang Bang makes very good ice cream. They have a broad range of flavours, often with an Asian influence, such as Tataro and Soursop. Our favourites are the Earl Grey and the Rosewater Lychee with Raspberry. The line up can be daunting. There are other...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
