We brought our team to the ice cream parlour to celebrate our company anniversary. The made sure they had a full contingent of staff behind the counter, and served up those awesome treats. Recommended for sure. Especially the chocolate chili! ;)

Delicious ice cream and gelato....helpful and friendly staff. Ed's has been a staple in the Beach community for decades... The quality of the ice cream and gelato is superior to commercial and supermarket brands. A true cottage industry with all the standards!

What can I say? Every flavour (and there are dozens) is delicious. This is ice cream to die for: Flavours like Creme brulee, burnt marsmallow, mercury espresso, and rum & raisin are my personal favourites. While there are PLENTY of delicious varieties for all ages..., they don't have fluorescent fake flavours like rainbow. The gelato is equally delicious. I'm glad I live half an hour from the nearest location, or I'd need double doors to get into my house.More

Close to the Toronto Waterfront and steps from the Martin Goodman Trail, Ed’s Real Scoop is a great spot for a cool ice cream treat. Lots of flavours and cone styles to choose from including sorbets and gelatos to make everyone happy.

Good home made products,a little over priced, understandable considering the rents leveled by the greedy landlords

Ed's has wonderful flavours including Roasted Marshmallow - likely the best. We love it year round! A small location with limited seating but lots of great treats including chocolate!
