 Sweet Jesus is a soft serve ice cream chain originally from Toronto.

This is the first Sweet Jesus location in BC and Vancouver,
at Metrotown Burnaby.

The ice cream is covered in a variety of toppings, like Cookies & Cream,
Brownies, Nutella, and more.

Prices start at around $5 - $8 after tax and tip, and any extras,
expect to pay at least $10 for this soft serve ice cream.

We ordered Cookies & Cream $7.50, in a Waffle Cone $1.

How much?
$7.50 Regular Cookies & Cream,
$1 Waffle Cone + Tax = $8.93
+ 12% Tip $1.07
Total $10

PRICE:
$-$$ Not the cheapest ice cream soft serve.

QUALITY:
Lots of toppings. The ice cream itself doesn't
have much flavor. Regular size is a lot!

The kids will love it.
Pricey soft serve but the portion is generous.
