Great dessert option, as it tastes great, it's quick, and it's cheap. The flavours change regularly but there is always a decent number of options. Salted caramel and the lemon flavours are always good. We have been many times and will continue doing so. Probably...not ideal for a day with bad weather as the shop is small and the line is often out the door.More

Absolutely amazing Gelato! Our absolute favorite ice cream store in Christchurch. Stretch your tastes and try some of their more bizarre flavors… You will be wonderfully surprised.

Absolutely excellent extra hot coffee served when requested. Love my coffee hot but the standard I received today was the very best ever. I enjoyed a delicious cookie and coffee and will make it my go to when in city. If you enjoy lovely hot...coffee don't hesitate just enjoy.More

Hubby and I popped in for a dessert after a dinner at a restaurant close by. The place was quite busy but we weren’t rushed to make our choice. I was offered a tasting as I couldn’t decide. Both cones were delicious. Service was friendly...too which is always a bonus.More

A must visit for anyone passing through Christchurch. The pomegranate and berry flavour is amazing! Love the imaginative flavour names.

Great choice of excellent quality gelato desserts. Also beautifully lit street so great venue to visit in evening. Quirky fun menu- we had already eaten so only wanted an ice cream, but had a good laugh at some of the other options on offer also!

Amazing & delicious options! Vegan friendly & also one of the chocolate lovers. Great location, cabinet goodies available along with tea/coffee options. Their opening hours are super convenient for a late night dessert dash. Would visit again!More
