Demetres is Dessert Experienced

We Are:

The Original. The Innovators.

We’ve been passionately doing this for 30 years. The true originals.

Often Imitated, Never Duplicated.

We’ve created the dessert scene and reinvented it over and over.

Our history is our proof.

Laser Focused On Desserts

We’re a true dessert restaurant. That means we don’t get distracted with preparing salads, pizzas, or sandwiches (no risk of seeing a kale salad here, folks).

Our desserts are served in gorgeously designed, comfortable, sit-down environments with full-service (table ordering, the works). That makes it a unique date night idea, a great place to celebrate milestones, and the place to catch up with friends and family.

Committed to Small Batch Ice Cream

We have been making our own ice cream since the very beginning in 1989. Would you ever take a dessert restaurant seriously if they served store-bought ice cream? We wouldn’t either.

The flavour and body of our ice cream took a long time to develop and is uniquely ours. After years of testing, we have come up with ten perfect flavours – quality over quantity is the name of the game. But don’t take our word for it, try it for yourself.

Using Top Quality Ingredients

Working with only the best suppliers allows us to hand-pick all our toppings and sweet additions, and ensures that each and every ingredient used to hand-craft our desserts is the highest quality possible.

At Demetres, nothing is ever casually chosen. Authentic ingredients make the best tasting desserts, so we continuously source and taste test until we end up with the best product possible.

Authentically Torontonian

From our original restaurant on the Danforth in 1989, to our 13 locations across the GTA today, everything about us is home grown.

And that rich flavourful ice cream we mentioned? It’s made from the best quality dairy we can find, right here in Ontario.
