Dragon

I have tried dragon fruit, raspberries, sour cherries and strawberry ice lolly with double dark chocolate. I might as well die. The combination of real fruit and fine chocolates created in my mouth taste explosion... Absolutely fantastic!

The best Chocolate Gelato I have ever eaten ! There is a lot of competition in Cairns for Ice cream shops, these guys come out on top in my books.

I am very impressively about your ice cream, I love berries so I ordered an Amarella, it was the best ice cream I have ever eaten before and staff was so nice and friendly. I will definitely come back.

Stopped here for a quick snack, absolutely gorgeous gelato. The lady behind the counter gave great recommendations, which we had to eat really quickly as the hot day didn't give us a choice!

Went here twice and loved it both times. The prices are good and there is a decent selection of flavors available. Worth checking out.

I just love this place! So tiny though you might just walk past and not even realise it is there. Excellent selection of ice-cream-on-a-stick and love that you can choose toppings to put on your iceblock! The kids will just love it and adults will too.

This is my regular gelato and ice block place to visit. My first time I had a soursop ice cream with very low expectations and I was completely blown away with the taste. Since then I've tried a variety of the other flavours. Best go wih their recommendations in terms of if you want to dip your ice block in... More
