Did you know that the vanilla and French mint use natural sugars and natural flavours? Neither did I until they told me. Best flavours!

There’s lots of ice cream shops that claim to be the best but Ed’s really is. They make their own waffle cones in the front window of the store. They have lots and lots of unique flavours. The best and most unique in my opinion...More

The scent of fresh-griddled waffle cones competes with the rainbow of exotic colours and flavours, deepest dark chocolate, ruby-red raspberry, tart lemon or lime, fragrant mango, praline, tiger-tiger, on and on, whether you love gelato or ice cream. You can eat right there, seated in...More
