Cool off for the Summer at this new dessert shop coming to Burnaby. Sweet Jesus Ice Cream is opening in Metrotown within the next few months.

The popular Toronto-born eatery is “the little ice cream shop that wouldn’t quit.” It’s since expanded to over a dozen shops in Ontario, one in Edmonton, one in the US and one soon to be in Burnaby.


Sweet Jesus Ice Cream whips up epic cones, including one that resembles Krusty The Clown from The Simpsons. Krusty The Cone features vanilla soft-serve, cotton candy, cotton candy sauce and rainbow sprinkles.

They serve up a Birthday Cake Cone, which has vanilla soft-serve, cream cheese icing, birthday cake bits and rainbow sprinkles. If Nutella is your guilty pleasure—order the Hella Nutella (chocolate & vanilla twist soft-serve, Nutella sauce, wafer cookies, Corn Flakes and toasted pistachios). Chocolate lovers can indule in the Rocky Road Rage, which includes chocolate soft-serve, marshmallows, chocolate sauce, walnuts, cashews and an Oreo cookie crumble.

But that’s not all—the joint also serves up some shakes and frappes. Their Red Velvet Cake Batter and Peanut Butter Pretzel Nutella drinks will give you the ultimate sugar high.

Sip on a fancy hot chocolate in either Salted Dark, S’mores or Cake Batter flavours.
