Yummiest Gelati ever

Kids loved the gelati options at this very quaint and easy to miss shopfront in Cairns. I loved the pistashio ice cream sandwich which was yummy but not overly sweet. The staff were very nice.

Based on all previous reviews we went here to find ourselves. Indeed this is one of the best ice cream we've had. The owner is Italian and personally crafts his ice cream and uses no artificial flavoring.

A blink and you miss it store front nearly hides this rainbow of house-made icecreams and paddle pops. Fancy flavours abound: sour cherry, Ferrero Rocher, pistachio, a variety of chocolates ... is your mouth watering yet?? The owner-operator is clearly a gifted icecream creator, and she is rightly proud of her little slice of paradise. Aplin Street is home to... More

I really enjoyed the gelato from here, had cookies n creme and caramel. Loses half a star because the two flavours tasted the same - bit vanilla-y (if that's a word!). Caramel should have had a stronger flavour.

Tried both of the top rated gelato spots in Cairns which are practically next door to each other. This one was fine but I preferred the other one.
