Ice Cream Fantasy – Dutch Dreams

Dutch Dreams Main
This is gotta be one of the coolest (pardon the pun) and most random ice cream parlors I’ve ever seen!  This desert haven is a local landmark located just off of the corner of Bathurst and St Clair on Vaughan Road. Dutch Dreams serves up their own in house brand  ice cream that comes in a variety of unique  flavours that has been serving Toronto for over 20 years.

Dutch Dreams

Now by looking a this place from the outside you would think Dutch Dreams could easily double as a movie set as well as an ice cream shop but you’d be in for a surprise when you actually get inside.   You’re hit smack in the face with a lot of randomness that may or may not relate to ice cream with cows, balloons, paintings, and baby balloon toys hung up on the wall.  Local patrons claim that this place looks exactly as it did years ago, so why mess up a good thing?

Dutch Dreams opens late till 11pm but when I left at 11:15 there was still a line up out the front door!

Photo by Canadian Pacific:  On a hot day apparently its quite common to have a line-up at the café.  They do their own waffles and ice cream cones in-house. The ice cream is a bit pricey but they come with fresh fruit toppings and other trimmings. Mind you, nothing that one cannot do at home easily anyway.  Guess convenience costs money!

Photo by Canadian Pacific:  Outside of Dutch Dreams, a number of metal milk/ cream canisters double up as stools for the customers.
