An ice cream parlour that's been here since before the earthquake! It must be good. It does sell good ice cream, lots of flavours to choose, nice garden to eat them in.

This is one of those 'must visit' places in Hastings. It has been part of their summer for so long. The ice creams are made the traditional way, with lots of exotic flavours. My two favourites are the passionfruit and the banana. There is a small garden area where you can sit out in the sun to enjoy life. Highly... More

I live within walking distance of Rush Munro,s. I am so lucky, such great ice cream with a lot of choice of flavours and a great ambience. My Australian relatives always beat a path there ASAP. A not to be missed.

Although open for most months of the year, Rush Munro's is a Hawke's Bay icon with its unique ice-cream and friendly service. It can get quite busy during the spring-summer-autumn months but waiting in the queue for a scrumptious ice-cream cone or five is all part of it, unless you want to sit inside for some of the other treats...

Awesome place for your ice-cream fix! Sooo many flavours to choose from! Sundaes are a delight as a must try.... Don't eat before you go there!

So many flavours it's hard to choose, but a sundae shared between two gives three flavours and all the trimmings. My favourite is honey and ginger, but maple walnut is good, so us boysenberry, oh, and not forgetting rum and raisin...actually, it's hard to pick a favourite so i just keep going back to try and work my way through...

As always Rush Munro's is the perfect spot to stop on a hot summer's day. Complete with on site parking, indoor and outdoor eating areas, this is a classic Hawkes Bay 'must do'. I had a traditional hokey pokey ice cream and at $7 was a little pricey, but it was delicious and worth every cent. Join the crowds!
