I was so excited to see a new vegan spot open up in Toronto. I feel like FINALLY we're getting a robust vegan scene here in the city. This makes me suuuuper pleased.
I've only tried two of items they offer, the Chocolate Frosted Brownie and Cake Batter ice cream. They also have a few "real food" items on the menu, it's not just desserts. Check out the website here.
This brownie I would say, is cake-y yet chewy. It was nice and sort of unique. I find if you have a cake-y brownie there's no chew to be had but Cosmic Treats proved me wrong. I really appreciated the frosting on top. It added even more chocolate flavour and who wouldn't want that?! Delicious!
(As you can see, I couldn't stop myself from digging in before snapping a pic)
Next up? Cake Batter ice cream! I just can't say "No" to something with sprinkles in it, I just can't! I had this on a separate day hence the cell phone picture versus a more stylized photo.
The majority of their ice creams are cashew-based, so I was told. The cake batter flavour is subtle, I'd say you just get more of a vanilla flavour. Nothing wrong with that because there are large pieces of chewy vanilla cake within it! Lots of pieces to be honest. It made the ice cream really stellar ;)
Something that I will note is that the ice cream is hella expensive. This picture might be deceiving but this scoop was smaaalllll and it was $4.80 including tax. I'm not too sure how that compares with other vegan ice cream joints, however. Eating it did put a smile on my face, though, and isn't that what it's all about?
So, definitely check out Cosmic Treats, I will be back to try some of the other items that they offer.
