With now two locations at the Strand, Juliettes supplies you with great ice cream and coffee all the up to the rock pool.

“Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Nothing special about this place. The coffee is ok but the gelato is small and overpriced. The staff need some training too. Nice setting though which might explain why they charge so much.

“A Rip Off Now”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Juliettes has totally lost the plot. This was a great place. The gelati is great, but recently things have gone rapidly downhill. They used to have gelati serves in small, medium and large cups. The small cup was around the $4.50 mark which is expensive for that amount of icecream but that's about what you pay for speciality icrecream, and at least you would get the cup filled and piled high, so you didn't mind too much, after all it's a special treat. Well recently they have changed their serving size. Now it's 2, 3 or 4 scoops. And that is literally all you get, and the scoops themselves are small. So now the small cup has two small scoops in it, the cup is mainly empty. I am so irate about this. This is just plain GREED. They are charging the same price as before but you get about a third of the serve you got previously. I hope the management of Juliettes reads this. You are now ripping people off by skimping on your serving size. It's just plain disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself. I used to frequent this cafe A LOT but unless their business practices improve to what they were before, I wont be going there.

“Excellent coffee/gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Ideal place to catch up with friends for coffee or on your own, they dont do meals as such, just snacky, quirky stuff with good coffee and gelato. They are always packed and you can see why. Lovely view too! Quick happy service from the team. Nice to have somewhere to go late at night.

“Great coffee, great gelato, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Very casual, great place to get a coffee or a meal, or just stop in for dessert on your way home. Be sure to spend some time here.
