Spring has sprung and summer is officially around the corner! As the weather heats up, you need the perfect, melt-in-your-mouth snack to keep you cool and refreshed all summer long. Well, FW has you covered!
Sweet Jesus is the up and coming gourmet dessert bar, known for their soft serve ice creams, espressos and paletas. I had the pleasure of trying out one of their amazing creations this past month and was blown away by the menu, the presentation and the taste!
Some of the amazing drink flavours include smores latte, matcha libre and death by hot chocolate. For soft serve ice cream you can choose from the holiday themed flavours, birthday cake (candle included), krusty the cone (wrapped in cotton candy) and my personal favourite, the mocha cone crunch! Newly introduced to the menu, the paletas, similar to a popsicle, are quickly taking the Instagram game by storm! Sweet Jesus has whipped up delicious flavours such as the detox (which is gluten free, dairy free, nut free and vegan), strawberry shortcake, and tiramisu!
With all these amazing flavours, your mouth is sure to be watering. Lucky for you, Sweet Jesus is open seven days a week, 365 days a year, in the heart of downtown Toronto. Prices for the “pimped out cones” run about seven dollars a pop but the portions are absolutely huge and you will savour every last bite. For the espressos, you can expect to pay between two and five dollars while the speciality drinks, such as the burnt marshmallow latte, come in at six dollars flat.
So next time your sweet tooth needs a fix, head on down to Sweet Jesus at 106 John Street, right in the heart of the Entertainment district. Be prepared to wait in a line, especially during the summer months, and take your cone to go in this over-the-counter diner. Make sure you eat to your hearts content, just don’t forget to Instagram the decadent creation before you chow down!
