Ed's Real Scoop (feature: Mercury Espresso Bar)

I have been raving Ed's Real Scoop (@Eds_Real_Scoop) for a while now, so I decided to share some pictures I took during a few visits and many other times that I went but didn't take any pictures..... I basically like ice cream/ gelato anytime of the year....

Pistachio & Blood Orange Gelato 
~ nothing special about the Pistachio but the Blood Orange was so refreshing on this hot summer day
Red Hot Chili Chocolate & Green apple Gelato
~  the Chili Chocolate is my favorite flavor, Chili & Chocolate are just my favorite flavor combination... it's not really spicy but just give you a hint of aftertaste, so even if you can't eat spicey you can still enjoy this. Whereas the Green Apple flavor was just too subtle and can't really taste the flavor next to the chocolate or any other flavor, so I would suggest to enjoy it on it's own.

Apple Pie & Vanilla Bean w/ waffle cone
~The Apple Pie was good w/ actual bits of apples... but didn't like the Vanilla Bean at all, I was expecting something with the actual vanilla taste, nope can only taste the cream =(
Burned Marshmallow & Peanut Butter Chocolate w/ waffle cone
~Love both especially the Burned Marshmallow -from now on, that's my favorite ice cream flavor and it's suppose to be their signature flavor.
Waffle cones are very fresh and yummy.

Btw, if you go there with one or more friends and have the same taste I would suggest buying a pint to share (can ask for 2 flavor per pint) @ $7 a pint for summer and $6 for Winter (2 for $11 winter sale), it'll be much cheaper for you to buy two separate cups =D

My favorite ~ Burnt Marshmallow Ice-cream &  Red Hot Chili Chocolate

 Going to my friend's house for dinner so decided to bring a pint as gift (of course in my fave flavor) and another pint for us to bring home =P

Burnt Marshmallow & Mercury Espresso Ice Cream 
~Mercury Espresso bar is just across the street from Ed's and this ice cream is made with their coffee beans.

 Love how they change their chalkboards design all the time, it's always so CUTE (^_^)

They have benches outside which are perfect during summer
(that day was freezing cold thou)

After ice cream, we just have to have our daily dose of caffeine , so we have to cross over to Mercury Espresso Bar which is one of my fave in Toronto (not as good as Dark Horse posted here).
I almost wish we bought over a scoop of ice cream and order an espresso to make a Affogato.
Ok, maybe next time I will =P

Verdict :
If you still haven't been to Ed's, you are missing out.
Burnt Marshmallow Ice-cream &  Red Hot Chili Chocolate are definitely the must try flavor
