Icecreams!!

Wow, so many icecreams to try!! Beautiful ice-cream store with plenty of room to enjoy your ice-cream. They were so yummy & really huge serves. Will be coming back again next year for more on our next overseas trip!

Stopped here for lunch, and tried the falafel burgers, fries, and shakes. It's fairly cheap (cash only), it's fairly fast, and while it's a little stand, there's plenty of outdoor seating on the adjacent lawn. Makes for a fast and fine meal.

This small shop located next to a small lawn. Me and my family just stopped by to take a rest and listen to the live music performance. We bought a fish burger and some drinks. Very surprised to find the fish budget is super yummy. Fresh fish meat, crisp deep fired skin, yummy dressing at reasonable price! Probably the Best... More

We got our first taste of the Boysenberry ice cream here and it was amazing. We even tried the peppermint and it was great too. A small joint and they dont allow you to taste the ice cream before ordering but it was worth it. Buy the ice cream and watch the kids enjoy at the park next to it.

I had a double scoop and it was really big. Worth the price. I walked down Arrowtown's main street in the sun, licking my ice cream and the world felt great!

All I can say is get yourself a Jaffa milkshake and chill out with it on the green. Perfect place to go on a sunny day.

The owner is a delight, she has the best burgers, milkshakes and so very generous with her ice-creams

It was a hot day when we passed by the Shed and saw the delightful looks on the customers leaving the place with their ice cream. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to try a NZ "thick" milkshake and we were not disappointed...stop and give them a try.
