Toronto can get pretty damn hot, we know this. The heat is well and truly back in the city, and we all need something to cool down from time to time. If you're looking for a way to treat yourself with a cold sweet treat, here's a list of some of the best Toronto ice cream and cold treat shops.

If you don't have an air conditioner (or even if you do), you're going to need to find another way to cool yourself down.

Beaches and pools could see themselves very crowded this week, and we don't blame you if you want to steer clear! If you're looking for something a little more low-key to help you cool down, we've got you.

Toronto has no shortage of ice cream shops, frozen yogurt places, and popsicle stands.

But, if just any old ice cream won't do, you might want to check out somewhere a bit different while summer lasts.

So we decided to hunt for some of the most unique versions of these we could find! 

All of these options will leave you drooling and with a picture-perfect, Instagram-worthy shot to share with friends. 

From neon-coloured ice cream, to unique flavours and mile-high cones, there are the best spots to find cold and sweet treats in the GTA this week.
