Best ice cream in Cairns. I wasn’t sure which flavor choose, but the guy who looked after me was a great help. You should try lemon/basil and strawberry/ raspberry sorbet.

Ice cream was nice (passion fruit and salted caramel), scoops not too big, very unpleasant and unfriendly staff unfortunately

These ice creams on offer in the cabinet are pretty cool! The service is eh, a-okay. But good serve of icecream (1 scoop) is actually missive in a cone!!! So $4.80 gets you a massive scoop.
