When it comes to top places for gelato in Toronto, G for Gelato ranks highly among them. In fact, they are rated on Tripadvisor as one of the top 25 restaurants in Toronto. Located at the corner of Jarvis and Adelaide in the St. Lawrence Market area, G for Gelato was one sweet spot that my family and I tried last year. We popped in for some treats one morning on our trip.
Spacious and Inviting
G for Gelato is a modern-looking and spacious cafe with ample indoor seating. On the outside, they have a few benches where people can enjoy their gelato.
More than Gelato
Aside from gelato, G for Gelato also serves breakfast items (BLT, wraps, omelette and more), paninis, pastries, salads and even pizzas. I had read that their thin crust pizza is worth trying.
Their choices for gelato seems almost endless. Customers can enjoy one scoop ($4.00), two scoops ($5.50) or three scoops ($6.75).
What We Tried
We ordered a plain croissant, lattes, and a single scoop of banana walnut gelato. The croissant wasn’t the best and seemed to not be house-made. It wasn’t very crispy on the outside.
The banana walnut gelato had a luscious, smooth, creamy texture while the flavour was quite pronounced. Delicious.
On my next trip to Toronto, I’d be interested in revisting G for Gelato and trying more of their gelato flavours and pizza. Rating: 3.5/5
