La Paloma is the place in Toronto for
ice-cream, or gelato. La Paloma offers as
over 50 different flavours at any time, all
premises -- go to the back of the store and
huge fridges full of milk and cream! The
here goes hand in hand with quality: all the
gelati taste amazing and have that soft
texture found in no other kind of ice cream.
Seasonal flavours include such treats as
fico (fig) or marron glace (glazed chesnut).
Taste and quality come at a price however;
$7 for a large serving (the size of a regular
packed to go.
Paloma also offers a narrow range of Italian
Visiting La Paloma is a true cultural
you'll be greeted in Italian, gelato names
Italian -- don't hesitate to ask for the
translations. La Paloma is one of our all-
favourites! Very busy in the summer,
wait a few minutes before being served --
but it's well worth it!

I've been coming to La Paloma since I was a kid. The place always reminds me of summer growing-up. My grandparents always brought me for some Hazelnut gelato - I've been hooked ever since. Other places have a limited selection with only one display of flavors but each La Paloma store I know of has 3 displays. I no longer live downtown but I visit each summer season religiously. I hope they open further east but for now I slide across to the stores up in Vaughan.

Love this place. First hand experience. I'm no blogger and I don't have a bias. Filter all the haters (competition and their employees ganging-up) from the previous comments and your left with a humble little Gelateria in the Heart of Corso Italia (St.Clair West) that has been around since 1967. The area has taken a knocking over the years, but the old store still survives through time. Same owners, same great flavours, same great quality. Yes, a little expensive but what isn't these days...Gas? Hydro? Taxes? Reality check - if you want quality you're going to pay for it, Canadian $ or Italian Euros $ - save yourself the plane ride and try it for yourself.
Lemon & Chocolato Combo still my favorite.
