- TORONTO'S BEST HOMEMADE ICE CREAM -
Since 1984, Summer's has served up the best tasting, highest quality homemade ice cream - made without compromise.
Summer’s was founded by Len and Helka Tokey in 1984. Starting in a small storefront on Cumberland Street, they decided to sell homemade ice cream - a tradition in Helka's family that began in Czechoslovakia in the late 1930's. Helka recalls stories of how her father would haul ice from the lake to their storefront in the town center of Košice to chill the cream and eventually sell as a delectable ice cream to the townspeople.
It's no surprise that they were able to translate that small-town charm to their store in Yorkville, where they have established a devoted customer base that has spanned across generations.

THE RETAIL LINEUP
FIND US AT FINE GROCERS ACROSS ONTARIO
In the summer of 2014, we launched four of our most popular flavours as our initial retail line, packaged beautifully in 500ml containers. Our super-creamy ice cream was enthusiastically received by customers at handful of fine grocers in the Greater Toronto Area. This year, we are proud to have extended our line up to eight outstanding flavours to select grocery stores in the Toronto area and beyond.
“Our ice cream is made without compromise. From selecting the finest quality ingredients to working with suppliers who honour relationships over dollars, we have high expectations at every step of the process.”
