Fantastic little place to stop off and enjoy the amazing ice cream. The hardest part is choosing the flavour you want! A must whilst enjoying the sunshine

Best dessert in Cairns. Have the "maxibond" looking homemade ice cream. It was very good. I had coconut and my boyfruend had pistachio, while friends had Ferrero Roche - I would recommend all.
