Great gelato shop in Coolum, next to coffee club..best gelato in Coolum..creamy and heavenly..highly recommend. Carmel and Honeycomb or Berry and Panna Cotta with white chocolate are top of my list. Generous portions depending on the size..support a local business..very busy after 4pm..lines out the door! Give it a try!

This is a great little shop that makes its own gelato fresh daily and flavours change although old favourites are always served. Love their coconut and hazelnut flavours. It melts quickly so in this summer heat go for a cup. 2 scoops for $5.50 is excellent value. Sorbets are also available if you prefer non dairy. Skip dessert at the... More

With current hot temperatures, it's definitely the season for a gelato , also a good cleanser after dinner at one of the nearby restaurants, a good range of flavours although i do prefer the mango.

Love an ice cream as a palate cleanser after dinner. And this was good ice cream. Reasonably priced compared to other established, similar franchises. We loved the take home packs as well.

Impeccable looking ice cream shop and the ice cream was so delicious - coffee, honeycomb, raspberry & mango. Well done! Such a treat 💕

Just a couple of minutes down stairs to our apartment stay at Element. Great than you can buy tubs and put in the freezer for your stay and the kids and friends can enjoy an ice cream right outside the shop.

We invested $12 in a twin pack double scoop polystyrene carrier to take ice cream back to our hotel room for an after-dinner treat. The ice cream here is lovely, with flavours changing each day. Our favourites were salted caramel and a confection called Delicious - a very apt name!

Gelato was quite nice, chocolate and coconut lovely but the staff/owner needs some customer service skills. Barely said two words. If you don't like serving ice cream try another business.

We have been coming to this shop for years as we are regulars at the caravan park. We have always enjoyed the girls serving. However this year we have noticed a significant change. The man we presume is the owner is not an asset to his business at all. He has a rude manner, is often closed early and is... More
