Several gelato places along Spadina Avenue. In Kensington is Dolce Gelato.

Would I come back? Probably not. Flavour is not exceptional, and service is unfriendly.

Should you go? Maybe, but since you can’t sample without paying for a full portion first, probably not.

Serena had been to this location before, so we gave it a try.

When we asked to sample, they told us we had to pay for a full portion first before letting us try. I guess they had a lot of tourists just try and leave.

I tried pistachio first, as usual. It was bland and didn’t even taste like pistachio.

So we stuck with more conservative options of blueberry yogurt and mango dream.

The blueberry yogurt was okay. The blueberry was very faint, less than what’s in Astro blueberry yogurt… It wasn’t bad, but you’re better off going to a frozen yogurt place than this. The mango dream was full of mango flavour. Tastes like they used both mango nectar as well as mango chunks.

As for service, the two staff both looked like they were in bad moods, and were not courteous at all. Not a smile, no thank you’s.

So no, probably not coming back.
