I've been here a few times and feel right at home everytime I go. First the service is excellent, it's a family run place (husband & wife) and they're both very friendly, always showing concern as to whether or not the ice cream was up to satisfaction and always available for a casual chat. DON'T ask them what they recommend, it's up to you what your tastes are, but having said that, so far, all of the flavours I've tried (and I've tried many) have been excellent. If for whatever reason it doesn't work the flavour can be adjusted, just talk nicely to the friendly people behind the counter, and I'm sure they'll see what they can do next time.
The Ice Cream... what can I say.. AMAZING!!!! it's extremely pure, you can see what they put into it when you stand there, so you can be assured there's no artificial colouring or flavouring..... Just try one of the fruity flavours (I personally took a liking today to the Cointreau / grapefruit), - the grapefruit is pinkish, the cointreau is clear, but the overwhelming ingredient being the cream makes the concoction white, (but you can still see the pink sacs in the ice cream). I'm sure that any other brand or make of icecream would have added something to make it pink, which is really what most people would expect for a pink grapefruit ice cream. The flavours may be subtle, possibly not what you're used to, because of the lack of artificial flavouring.
The whole process does take a few minutes, it's fascinating to watch, the liquid, followed by the nitrogen freezing, as the saying goes "all good things to those who wait".. and as I'm trying to get across to you, it is good.
Alot of the ingredients are made on the premises, the honeycomb, the chinese new year pineapple tarts, the purees for the various flavours, to name but a few. - and that's another thing, more interesting flavours keep being added, for Australia day they had Tim Tam (biscuits) with toffee.... For Xmas it was Horlicks / Oreo, this CNY it's Mandarin Orange, the pineapple tart was also nice, the traditional pineapple tart jam is mixed with the icecream whereas the tart is mixed in to give a crunchy texture. If you're really adventurous just tell them what kind of mix you'd like, they're very accommodating, having said that, be warned, some of what you decide to mix may work, some might not, just like I said earlier, it's up to individual tastes.
The price is very reasonable, being comparable to any other premium ice cream, but of course, like i've mentioned, very pure.
They have several interesting flavours, such as Chilli/Chocolate, Garlic/peanut butter, Ginger/honey, as well as the traditional ones, - vanilla, chocolate, banana etc. Quite a large menu (lots of alcoholic ones too!)
If you are looking for good icecream, a nice place to go with your friends to hang out, or really do care about what goes in to your body, this is the place to go. There's ample parking right outside the shop.
