The Arrow Cafe and Ice Cream Opens on Dundas and Ossington

When it’s hot in Toronto, ice cream can be just the thing. Luckily for us, a new ice cream and coffee shop just opened on 1164 Dundas west of Ossington. The Arrow Cafe opened a week ago, just west of St. Christopher House. When we visited the owners while they were still renovating, they told us they got the name from a logo they found on the floor. At one time the place was the site of a print shop, and they are pretty sure the “A” in the centre of an arrow in the logo, was from the print shop.

The ice cream on offer is different in that they have a few flavours made with coconut milk, so dairy free, and some made with buffalo milk from Monforte Dairy. Fresh, local, different. The prices are reasonable too! We have some photos for you, but go visit yourself.

  1. Just visited The Arrow and I’m quite disappointed. I thought I would check out the place since it’s in my area.

    I paid $3.50 for one scoop of chocolate ice cream that looks like it could very well be a kids scoop. As well, the coconut milk in the ice cream overpowers all of the chocolate flavour. Hopefully they have more going for them than coffee. Will not return to this place!

  2. I loved the coffee and the attention Daniel the guy that works there was really kind and i had a great time with my friends. I will come again for sure. Makoki
