Yes Oh Dear, was my first thought when entering this delicacy delight. New Zealand ice cream is something that has to be experienced and this little place certainly hit the spot.

We stopped for a burger in the sun - fabulous!! What flavour, amazing choice - we both went with the CBA burger and I was so sorry when it was finished. Have already recommended it to other friends. Will be back.

The ice cream we had at the Shed was to die for. So creamy, and so many flavors, I wanted two scoops in each hand. If you like gelato, you will love this ice cream!!

Huge serves of icecream in a cone or cup. Choose from approx 20 flavours, at a very realistic price. Bask in the sun on the town green as you enjoy your individually selected ice-cream flavours .
