It was an even better turnout for Part 2 of our Toronto Dessert Tour that saw thirteen of us hit five different sweet, sweet spots…
MOMOFUKU MILK BAR: cereal ice cream, cookies, crack pie.
190 University Avenue – noodlebar-toronto.momofuku.com
Sampling: cereal soft serve, crack pie soft serve, crack pie, corn cookies, compost cookies, double chocolate cookies, cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookies.
Sisters Kerrington (aka Snackington) and Breanne dig in.
The soft serve crack pie with cereal sprinkles was the clear favorite. We had to have security escort director Ron Murphy from the building to stop him from eating their entire supply.
On the move to our next location.
UNCLE TETSU’S ANGEL CAFE: Japanese cheesecake
191 Dundas Street West – www.angelcafetoronto.com
Settling in for Round #2.
Mean Jean Brophey checks out the maid cafe hall of fame!
Three different types of cheesecake. Surprisingly, there was a pretty even distribution of favorites.
TSUJIRI: matcha desserts
147 Dundas Street West – tsujiri-global.com
Good and good for you!

One big awkward thumbs up for the sushi at Japango from Ron!
STOP #4 (SAVORY INTERLUDE)
JAPANGO – Sushi
1122 Elizabeth Street – Japango
Impatiently awaiting sushi.
Ron lectures everyone on proper sidewalk sushi etiquette.
Alas, the pic doesn’t do the sushi justice. Delicious. It receives both Akemi and my seal of approval.
INFUSE CAFE: Organic teas and coffees (also boardgames!).
354 Yonge Street – Infuse Cafe
We actually planned to walk up to Red Bench for ice cream sandwiches, but it had the temerity to permanently cease operations sometime between the last time I visited and today. So, instead, we ended up going to Infuse Cafe, home of Toronto’s best teas and coffees, served hot OR cold.
You know what goes good with tea?
Homemade snickerdoodles and oatmeal-raisin cookies, of course.
My double order of the Ice Cream Sandwich Coffee, a glorious mix of coffee and, yes, ice cream sandwiches.
An out of control Ron Murphy cancels his tea order in favor of another ice cream sandwich coffee.
Lawren bids us a fond farewell in order to attend a purported business meeting.
Jean and Rowena, hopped up on sugar, offering free hugs to wary passersby.
Thanks to everyone who attended today’s foodie foray. We’re going to attempt to squeeze in one more tour (Toronto Dessert Tour Part 3!) before everyone scatters to the four winds once production ends.

Must confess, I skidded to a halt at Crack pie(!) and Compost Cookies(?)
cool, you guys have lots of fun and gooooood eats!
All that stuff looks amazing and it looks like a good time was had by all, but I admit my stomach is a bit “off” today so it doesn’t seem quite as enticing as the last round.
I notice that Joe’s Buffet Palace is right next to the Club Zanzibar. Are we diversifying? 🙂 I hope Lawren’s “business meeting” went well!
Re: Your Toronto Dessert Tour. You may be on to a new career after you retire from writing. P.S. Can I have your job when you do? 😉
You had me at cheesecake, coffee, homemade snickerdoodles & sushi! What a yummy day!
Here on the home front “Operation 50” was a success! We celebrated my bestie’s bday last night with grilled chicken & roasted pork BBQ, homemade slaw, banana pudding & cake. The cake was the only item that her husband didn’t make. Purchased at Publix, sour cream icing on a white cake layered with raspberry. Delicious as well. Had about 25 peeps show up. This morning we had blueberry muffins with mimosas. After the first glass I got rid of the orange juice & just drank champagne.
Can’t wait to see what you post for your third outing!
Wow, just wow. I mean, what else is there to say. I think all of us should take your examples and arrange similar events with friends! Maybe have a calendar of “Joe’s blogs events, world wide”. It could be come a thing. 🙂
Wowza, that looks like fun! You can tell this season is almost finished. It’s like how the kids at school get a little crazy near the end of the semester. 🙂
Mmmm, amazing food, good company, and a nice walk. As usual, I should not read your blog right before breakfast.
I made an amazing ginger beer apple cake with a crumble topping, but sent it all away with my husband. I had one large piece last night, and immediately realized I had to banish it from the house or it would whisper my name. Nope.
How did all the treats go down? I would be fanning myself on my fainting couch halfway through this epic food tour. Major props to the Bellies of Steel. It’s 80’s here and there is major spring fever, I saw folks I haven’t seen in years in the sunny street, had to escape my cubicle to have in lunch in the park because the weather demanded that I chill outside.
Those matcha soft serves look so yuumy.
Sister Snackington aka Kerrington was truly a delight to behold. To think I trapes in the area those times I was in town but without the Nawsh. I had to RUSH to a prearranged event.
That all looks so good!
Dear God, I’m a full month behind in the blog????? Wow. Where does the time go?
This looks like SO much fun. How do you NOT gain weight?
And on that note, I’ll have to squeeze in more blog posts later. Patrick’s transportation from school just pulled up.
