Food
While the star of the show here is the ice cream, this dessert parlour also makes a mean Belgian waffle, complete with your choice of ice cream scoop (or two), and toppings like peanut butter pieces, toasted almonds or roasted marshmallow, and a drizzle of chocolate or salted-caramel sauce. If waffles aren’t your thing, the brûléed banana sundae with your choice of scoop, a sprinkling of nuts, crunchy, caramelised banana and a rich, warm drizzle of salted-caramel sauce is a serious treat any time of day.

The Creamery has become known for their handmade ice cream that is made using seasonal and sustainably sourced ingredients. The scoops are creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness, and come in a colourful array of daily flavours. If you’re a purist, the sweet cream version is perfection. Alternatively, you’ll find the real-deal peanut butter, 65% chocolate, and salted caramel equally pleasing.

The team doesn’t stop at the classics; punchier flavour options include glorious malted chocolate, zingy lime chocolate chip, popcorn, lemon cheesecake, and apple crumble with roasted Pink Lady pieces and oat crumble.

Drinks
Enjoy well-made coffee by Rosetta, teas, and of course thick and delicious milkshakes. Jugs of iced lemon water on the counter are there for thirsty customers to help themselves.

Service
The fast-casual service makes this a stress-free outing. Grab and pay at the ice cream counter and wait for your order to be delivered – with a smile – to your table. Be sure to ask the friendly staff for a taster or two before deciding on your flavour ice cream.

Ambience
Mint and white hues with flowers and succulents on each table gives this dessert café plenty of charm. Sit at the sun-soaked counter and enjoy the views of leafy Dean Street.

And…
Take home a tub of your favourite ice cream – as well as homemade toppings – to enjoy from the comfort of your couch.

  • I wasn't too surprised - given how delightful this cafe is - to find it full even on a quiet Tuesday night at 9pm, despite being in the midst of the suburbs. I loved the minty interior and friendly staff. I tried the meringue topping for the first time - plus the chocolate sauce - which, in retrospect, was probably a little much, but I've always had a problem with restraint! Both were delicious - I was disappointed at first to see that the chocolate sauce was so thin, but it's got a good quality chocolate flavour. (I guess I was hoping for a ganache-y kind of thing though, which set on top of the ice cream...) Best of all, the ice cream was creamy, smooth and as fresh as a punnet of strawberries picked right from the farm.

  • Delicious ice cream served by friendly, engaging waiters and waitresses. Family run business. Nice to enjoy after an evening outing as it stays open late.

  • Had two absolutely incredible scoops of ice cream on Sunday. I'm heartbroken to have only discovered the birthday cake flavour now - it tastes like cookie dough and unicorn kisses. The peanut butter ice cream was absolutely sublime too - creamy and sweet and superlatively peanut-buttery!

  • Now THIS is the spot to get a waffle!! R60 may seem steep to those on a budget but it will get you a waffle big enough to share with two scoops of rich, luxuriously decadent and delicious ice -cream. So far the peach and fennel comes out tops in my book, although the chocolate orange is also a total winner (and the Birthday cake, Rosetta coffee, lemon curd swirl etc...)

  • Purchased a tub of ice cream from this lovely little store the other day, but it was unfortunately very icy and granular. Has happened a couple of times - I wonder if there's an issue with the freezers?
