Ice cream is a frozen, creamy treat that originated in the Far East. It was then brought to Europe where it was adopted and perfected by chefs who used milk and cream as a base instead of snow as the original recipe called for. Today, ice cream comes in all shapes, sizes, flavors, and textures - from fruit-flavored sorbets to traditional favorites like vanilla or mint chocolate chip. It's a popular dessert choice for people around the world!

Ice cream parlors are a popular destination for delicious and refreshing treats. From classic ice cream flavors to modern specialties like vegan, sorbet, and frozen yogurt, these delicious destinations have something for everyone. For those looking to escape the summer heat or just treat themselves to a delicious dessert, an ice cream parlor is the perfect place....

Review on Zomato – “Came here tonight and had the 3 scoop ice cream. I had the bubblegum/ferraro and mango sorbet. The prices were reasonable. The place was very clean and the staff were friendly and attentive. This joint is located opposite the Randwick ritz cinemas. The ice cream here is brilliant. I highly recommend to all.” – Safwat Hossain

Review on Trip Advisor – “No wonder Gelato Messina at South Brisbane is popular, there’s a flavour for everyone, so many to chose from, loads of different flavours like Pavlova, ANZAC buscuit, Dulce de Leche, Pandan and Coconut. On the afternoon of our family visit it was difficult to make a selection quickly. The store is glamorous and very stylish, high ceilings, glass and steele front facade, concrete and wood panelling, it was very nice to visit.” – kpiddy

Review on Zomato – “Located near the South Bank Beach, the store is decorated in light pink colour, mainly for takeaway without much seating area.I had a look at the ice cream on display and was pleasantly surprised with the wide variety of flavour, from the fruit-based to the chocolate-based ones. Moreover, you can also customise your own ice cream with toppings of your preferences. I settled with the Mango & Coconut flavour which was refreshing and not too overwhelmingly sweet; perfect for a hot summer afternoon.Would like to come back and try out other flavours!” – Putri Matta Unnardi

Review on Zomato – “This is the REAL place for REAL gelato in Brisbane! Knowing that the gelato is freshly made onsite is a plus! Gelato: texture is super smooth and the tastes are great! You can expect the flavour by the names of the gelato. Shop: this Teneriffe shop is always my favourite, with indoor seating (great for hot summer) and outdoor seating (great for big bunch of friends/family gathering). The only point that needs improvement is the scoop-stacking skills of particular staff, but I believe training will solve this (last time I ordered a double scoop cone and the gelato was collapsing half way and I almost made a mess lol) other than that everything is perfect!” – Ethelladame
