If you ask us, every day should start with coffee and end with ice cream. And, back in the day, you could satisfy both cravings at once inside of select Tim Hortons locations that featured popular U.S. chain Cold Stone Creamery. Canada was sad to see this coffee-ice cream partnership come to an unfortunate end back in 2014, but don’t worry if you've still go that craving! We’ve rounded up nine Ontario ice cream spots that can totally fill your Cold Stone void. 

Now if you’re up for a quick trip across the border, you can find numerous Cold Stone Creamerys still in operation in the U.S.

But, if you’d rather stay right here in our backyard, there are plenty of places where you can get all the wild toppings and mix-ins that CSC is famous for.

And some of these places serve up a mean cup of joe, as well.

From Rice Krispies and nuts to cotton candy and fresh fruits, it seems like anything is popsicle when it comes to ice cream toppings in this province.

And, with warmer weather (finally, hopefully) on the horizon, there’s never been a better time to start planning out those summer road trips.

So rally the squad and give them the scoop!
