Snack on something sweet

Ice cream and cakes and candies — oh, my! Downtown sweets shops serve unique treats that are perfect for a pick-me-up. 

Fête Ice Cream and Coffee’s made-from-scratch ice cream comes in cup or cone, regular or dairy-free. Their menu rotates regularly but it’s always exciting! 

Fusian Experience Desserts & Café offers elegantly decorated cakes, ooey-gooey cookies, Japanese lava tarts and more. If you haven’t yet tried a jiggly cheesecake, head to their location in the Scott Block. 

Looking for your favourite childhood soda, or a candy bar from across the pond? Teeyah’s features nostalgic, rare confectionaries from around the world and a dairy bar that serves cotton candy burritos! (Yes, you read that right.) 

The creative bakers at Oh Doughnuts dish out fresh-daily gourmet, delicious doughnuts. Their sweet menu – including hits like Dunkaroos, lemon lavender and cookie dough cheesecake – is rounded out by savoury surprises like everything bagel, pickle dip and taco dip. Gluten-friendly and vegan options are available!

Stop by the elegant baking counter at The Forks for some of the goodies from Jenna Rae Cakes. The menu changes daily, but you can always find Insta-ready, whimsical yet sophisticated baked goods. Pick up classic takeaway treats like macarons, sandwich cookies, and cupcakes, or add some fun to your day with a cookie dough cup or a cake cup! Vegan options are available.

If you’re in the mood for a sugar rush, you’re in luck. You can #finditdowntown
