It may be surprising to learn most restaurants aren't content with offering simple, unadorned ice cream for deserts. So we picked this place and were not disappointed.

This place is right in the town centre and has the most delicious ice cream and milkshakes I've ever tasted! Prices are very reasonable for a tourist area - $4.50 for a vanilla milkshake, compared with $7.00 in Russell across the bay!

This is the perfect spot to stop for some ice cream and taking with you to sit and look at the ocean. We went here several times and the ice cream was always great and the people there super friendly.

Cellini's is a delight! Their lemon curd ice cream is one of the best things I have had in a long time. I can't wait to try the other flavours!
