“Fun location for some good ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

There are often lines out the door and around the corner in the summer. It's more of a destination type of place. The ice cream is good..but, it's the location across from the beach that really lures them in.

“Excellent ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Its a best place to hang out late night! They are open till 12 I think.. I tasted Passion fruit and it was awesome. Great taste and felt like fresh! A perfect place to go with your family. The streets and park nearby also great for an evening hangout. If you are an ice cream lover, its a must go place!

“Delicious!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great place to sit down and enjoy an icecream right by the ferry terminal and watch the world go by. Plenty of people seem to sit down and enjoy an icecream or cake here. Plenty of selection of cakes but the icecreams were really scrumptious. Plenty of flavours (in a cup or waffle cone) and toppings galore. Pretty pricey though!!

“Very disappointing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Don't waste a) time waiting in a queue and b) your money on a very ordinary ice cream. Expensive and disappointing. The in-house made waffle cones are good but the actual ice cream is rubbish. Recommend going to Valentinos (ferry building), Giapo (Queen st) or Kiwiyo (mission bay), or go up the hill to Eastridge New World and buy a tub of Tip Top!
