Busker’s offers a wide range of ice creams – typically, 36 flavours of hard ice cream on hand as well as soft ice cream and frozen yogurt. It serves Nestle’s ice cream favourites such as Tiger Tiger, Rainbow Sherbet and Pralines and Cream and premium selections from the London Ice Cream Co.
On the day we went, every barrel of ice cream looked all-but brand new. A cone of Chiquita banana was really good; surprisingly, it was not oversweet. A hot fudge sundae made with soft serve was loaded with toppings, including nuts and a cherry.
Busker’s does not offer indoor seating. There are five benches outside along with six tables surrounded by chairs. It’s on a busy road, so there’s lots of traffic to watch go by, but it’s not exactly a picturesque view.
Prices for a cone:
Hard pack: kids $2.78; single $3.15; double $4.90; triple $5.90.
Soft: kids $1.75; single $2.50; double $3.15; triple $4.15.
A sugar cone is an extra 10 cents and a waffle cone is an extra 75 cents.
Also available: sundaes and banana splits, shakes, malts, floats.
Note: Busker’s also serves a full menu of subs, salads, and sandwiches from gyros on a pita to a classic reuben. French fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, etc.
Bottom line: This was a good place for us to open with, since we’re very familiar with Busker’s – it’s close to grandma’s house.
Marta’s notes: “I loved it. It was really good!”
“Personally, I thought that it was pretty nice but you got to be careful or you won’t get a seat!”
