This place has been a favourite gelato cafe of mine over the last few years. Most recent visit was last week, during a brutal 42 degree day and was just the trick. Long-time favourite flavour is the coconut and pandan gelato, great flavours, smooth textures, and the fragola sorbet very good as well.

Went here during the scorching recent weather, and bought two flavours each for the four of us in the family. All were delicious, and we were very happy. The boys rate it as as one of the best parts of our week in Melbourne! Highly recommend the refreshing passion fruit on a hot day, and the lemon was also a winner. Nice friendly girl serving too.

Great Ice cream but also had a Chocolate milkshake that had very little chocolate flavour at all.
Just stick with the ice cream and you should be happy. Snickers and cherry were my favourite.

There is nothing much I can say except GO and TRY! Definitely worth the trip! tried their durian and lychee icecream while my brother chose the ferrero Roche and Nutella ice cream! Their icecream is full of flavour and they have a few selection of exotic fruit which is a bonus! Yum!

I went to the University of Melbourne, so I frequented Lygon St a lot as an undergraduate. As a result, I have tried every gelateria along the strip several times, and this is my absolute favourite.
Lots of flavours available for you to mix and match, from delicious creamy options to the lighter, fruity choices.
The servings are generous, and the staff are happy to let you try a few flavours as you perfect the perfect flavour combo.
Buy yourself a cup (or cone), then wander into the neighbouring park to enjoy it as the hubbub of Lygon St rolls past. It's the perfect way to end an evening.
