Loved this place. I would recommend the crepes they were yummy but not sickly sweet. The prices are pretty responsible considering the size of the servings.

I hve been to this dessert heaven before and i keep going back with every traveller who visits me! Great ice cream, amazing flavours and the waffles Yum! We ordered the chocolate lush and the cookies monster... so much sugar! But so good, just need slightly more comfortable chairs but then we'd probably never leave!

Great western and asian inspired ice cream combination. As I am lactose intolerant, I really enjoyed their traffic lights drinks with sorbet!

Waffles were good, wide range of flavours, it was a bit expensive though, the milkshake was just OK, note it's cash only!

Popped in here for dessert on a Friday night, when they are open till 1am. Service was polite, nothing special, but I was offered the option of a menu for dining-in, or I could just grab an ice cream and go. They let me try a few flavours before deciding on the Durian flavoured Ice Cream, which indeed tasted like... More

Absolutley amazing menu, with pictures so you can see the amazing creations you are purchasing. Huge variety. There was only one toilet which was not easy to find, tucked away near a store room

This place is somewhere you really need to try out next time you visit Melbourne, it has the nicest ice cream I have ever tried as well as some very unusual flavours, but I am not that adventurous and had the coconut one with passionfruit sorbet, pure heaven.

Best Asian flavoured ice creams here - love the green tea and black sesame combination - always a favourite. Other interesting asian type flavours you won't find anywhere else. Worth a visit everyday in summer!

Been here many times on many different occasions. It never seems to let me down. They have great staff and the atmosphere is lovely. The menu is filled with so many different scrumptious desserts it's always hard to choose! I definitely recommend trying one of their Crepe dishes!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
