Simply Yummy Ice Cream Shoppe & Creperie, Toronto, ON

In a forlorn neglected courtyard at Bloor Street W and Windemere (Bloor West Village), you'll find Simply Yummy.

Established in 2012, Simply Yummy specializes in serving premium ice cream, Kawartha Dairy and Greg's. Homemade crepes made from scratch, 100% fresh juice smoothies with no additional sugar and custom-made ice cream cakes. The reason Amanda, the owner, started this business is because she wanted to provide her kids and other mothers' children with real ice cream and products they can trust are wholesome and fresh. She wanted to be based in a neighbourhood community in order to bring back that old-fashion feeling of a place where kids in the neighbourhood love to go and families enjoy taking a trip to get a treat.

I've never been there before and stopped in for an early lunch today.  There were lots of varieties of crepes, smoothies and ice creams to choose from!

I ordered a Strawberry Bananza smoothie (strawberries, banana and fresh orange juice) and a Chicken Cordon Blue crepe (tender chicken breast, Black Forest ham, lettuce, mozzarella cheese and mayo but without lettuce ... I'm not a fan of lettuce) combo ... about $10.

My smoothie was fresh and delicious!

I watched as my crepe was made.

I ate it like a sandwich ... this is about halfway through

There is seating inside for three at the window ... though it was a bit nippy, I ate outside at one of the tables.

The crepe was good and with the smoothie, it was a filling lunch! I'd get it again but without mayo ... I found the mayo a bit overpowering in some spots and think the cheese would be creamy enough.  Plus there seemed to be some kind of cream sauce with the chicken.  Too bad I had no room left for ice cream!

If you are in the Bloor West Village area, I would suggest you stop in for a crepe, smoothie and/or ice cream!  Bring your pooch along because they have doggie scoops!

That place looks awesome. I love crepes - especially with Nutella on them.
