"Closed For The Season"

The Bar Ape (ah-pay) is a gelato spot just off St Clair Ave W and unfortunately the ice cream season is over for us. The business started off selling gelato from a 3-wheeled Piaggio Ape truck and hence the name. I like this night-time scene with the scooter out front.

I guess it would be a bit too cold for ice cream eating around this time of the year. I love the photo. You are right, that scooter outside is the perfect addition.

I wonder how many people pronounce this properly? Looks like a cute shop. Our ice cream store in town stays open all year but they also do hot drinks, etc. In the summer they open a second location a block away.

Closing gelato stores in winter? How can people live there?

I’m glad you included the proper pronunciation...I am one who is ignorant enough to have been totally wrong.

Mike said...

It's never to cold for ice cream.

Lois said...

Living in Florida, I guess never thought about some places having an ice cream season. I like the pronunciation of this place!

Revrunner said...

Oh, well. Until next year.

Connie said...

What an adorable shop . . . wait a minute, did you say ice cream season was over . . . i've never heard such words. We eat ice cream year round, LOL.

Tom said...

...the ice cream season is over? oh no!

Jim said...

I like it. We're in full ice cream season here.

William Kendall said...

It looks welcoming. There's a gelato place here that remains open.

Can't scream for ice cream if nobody is there to hear you. Love the composition of this photo, very nice, Pat.

Christine said...

Great photo Pat! Our ice cream store just cuts back on their hours in winter & we managed to nip in last night for a treat!

VioletSky said...

Sorry, but that seems an unfortunate name. It's probably constantly pronounced wrong!

Taken For Granted said...

This is to bad. I still like to eat ice cream in the winter, and Gelato is no exception.

These places must do really well the rest of the heart if they want to make ends meet.

No gelato for the holidays. That sounds terrible. I like the scoter.

Enjoy your day!

Closed for the season! Imagine that! It's exactly the opposite here Pat, in fact I had a huge ice-cream this afternoon 😀
