The Best Halal Dessert in Toronto
The team at Halal Foodie all have a bit of a sweet tooth. And by a bit, we mean it’s pretty huge… We love cupcakes, ice cream, crepes, waffles, and the list could go on and on! With your help we’ve come up with a list of halal dessert places in and around Toronto.
Remember – we only cover fully-halal places on the blog, so these restaurants don’t serve alcohol. Let us know if we’ve missed your favourite halal dessert place in the comments below and we’ll be sure to do some, er … research.
In alphabetical order:
Affy’s Premium Grill, 2200 Brock Road, Pickering & 2283 Argentia Road, Mississauga
Though there’s a difference in opinion of which Affy’s location is the best when it comes to the main dishes, almost everyone we’ve spoken with can agree that the brownie, cheesecake and tiramisu at Affy’s is top notch. Oh, and before we forget – their mango milkshake might very well be the best thing on their menu!

A La Crepes, 2761 Markham Road, Scarborough
New to the block, A La Crepes has it all: gelato, crepes, and an assortment of desserts. It’s a great place to go out with the family or friends regularly – there’s lots of room for everyone. And gelato is a healthier alternative to ice cream (right?!) so feel to indulge a little bit – we’re not judging!
Black Ox Bistro, 1780 Markham Road, Scarborough
First and foremost a steakhouse with phenomenal service and ambiance — but they also pack some serious dessert to finish your meal. Our top choice is their creme brule.
Crave Grill House, 25 Woodbine Boulevard #5, Toronto
Another great restaurant to take your family for dinner and then dessert. There’s ample space and their customer service is first-class. They have a wide selection of milkshakes, smoothies, mocktails and ice cream. Their dessert options are good, too – people really like the Decadent Molten Lava Cake!
D Spot Cafe & Bistro, 51 Lebovic Avenue, Scarborough
Another very new addition to the halal restaurant scene D Spot is a familiar favourite (formerly a Spin Cafe). All menu items are completely halal and is owned by Muslims who have made sure all their ingredients are clear! Their ice creams are all home made and incredibly creamy and rich – our favourites are pistachio and rocky road!
Flavors Cafe and Eatery, 2200 Brock Road, Pickering
Often a favoured “chill spot”, Flavors has quite a few snack and dessert options. Their milkshakes come highly recommended (especially the mango and Nutella) and their creme brulee is also on the top of the list. It’s a great cafe to bring your friends to, and they do have late hours on the weekend.
Khaike Paan, 10737 Yonge Street, Richmond Hill
Who loves falooda? Falooda is a drinkable dessert and the Halal Foodie team cannot get enough of it. When we were on the hunt for the best falooda in town, Khaike Paan in Richmond Hill was suggested by many falooda-lovers.
Milky Lane, 631 Yonge Street #2, Richmond Hill
Ice cream and milkshakes and waffles, oh my! They have about 10-12 tables and they’re open late on Friday and Saturday nights which makes it a great late-night joint for those who live in Richmond Hill/Markham.
NEW Moods Eatery and Cafe, 672 Iroquois Shore Road, Oakville
Beautiful and large decor, desserts and dessert drinks galore plus a savoury menu makes Moods Eatery and Cafe a wonderful new spot to the West end halal scene. Great for special events or large parties!
Paramount Fine Foods, multiple locations in and around the GTA
Confession: on more than one occasion we’ve gone into Paramount Fine Foods just to grab dessert, and we know many others who have done the same! They have trays of Baklawa, Kinafe and other Middle Eastern desserts. All of their locations have plenty of seating space so it’s a great place to take the family, or grab some dessert to go.
** CLOSED **
Sugar N Spice Cafe, 3280 Dufferin Street, Toronto
The ice cream at this dessert cafe is made right in-store and they feature flavours like Cookies N Cream, Choco-Hazelnut, Tiramisu and your usual flavours. Sugar N Spice Cafe also serves cool desserts like Peach Melba, the traditional Banana Boat and you can even customize your own sundaes!
T-Buds, 3343 Yonge Street, Toronto
If you’re looking to have dessert during the day rather than after dinner, T-Buds is your kinda place. You’ll have your choice of tea (there’s over 100 different teas and tissanes) and delicious crepes like The Classic (a sweet crepe dusted with icing sugar and served with lemon) or Banana Nut (crepe with banana, Nutella and mascarpone drizzled in chocolate). They exclusively do afternoon tea now so call ahead for reservations!
