This was walking distance from our hotel. It was a nightly trip to purchase an iced coffee. To be honest I never tried any of their gelati. Tried their ice coffee and I was hooked.

These are the best gelati cups in port Douglas! Had them every day for desert after dinner and sometimes afternoon tea too. The shakes were delish too with us going every morning to get one.

As everyone knows, us ladies have a separate "dessert stomach". This means that no matter how much that we complain about being full, we always have room for dessert.

Very nice ice cream offered at this ice cream bar. Expect to pay tourist prices being a tourist town though. Lovely way to cool down in the heat

Great range of ice creams, put them in a bigger cup when get the 3 scoop variety ( so it doesn't melt all over you). Went two times, busy and quiet and both times the staff were friendly and helpful. We never felt rushed to choose. Def going to try and come back even when moving on in our travels.

Usually those of us with allergies or other food issues miss out on treats like this, but not here! This shop is heaven! There is a huge range of ice creams and sorbets to cater for everyone, with friendly and knowledgeable service. Can't wait to visit again!

We loved Shakes Gelati Bar - so much better than the other ice-cream shop on the main street. We had dessert here pretty much every night of our holiday - the kids loved it! The flavours were AMAZING and the staff were great! Very happy family!!! (Diet starts when we get home!!!)
