Look out for the sign


My prayers have been answered. We now have a top quality ice-cream shop right here in the main street of Eltham. You can't miss it, there are big purple umbrellas on the footpath and the windows open up all along two sides. You can then sit on the wide window seats in the sun or shade (depending on the side you choose).

I am wondering if this is the biggest selection of gelato and sorbet in Melbourne. To my delight, they have a very impressive chocolate range and some other irresistible flavours. I chose chocolate fudge, which was absolutely delicious. It's very rich, just the way I like it.

My daughter chose salted caramel…. No surprise there. This is a fave for her but she said this was so good. She stretched it out for ages.

We are putting our summer holiday visits in the diary and we've already picked out our flavours for next time. I'm having white chocolate and boysenberry and she is having another strawberry cheesecake. Click here for the menu - https://augustusgelatery.com.au

Brand new shop


When I asked what she liked about the shop, she commented on the friendly staff. They are young girls looking like they are enjoying what they do. It's a pretty cool environment to work in but it'd be hard not to give the ice-cream a lick as you pass it over to the customer.

Keep this a secret but you can ask to sample potential flavours!
Definitely a must try holiday event.

They also have a store in Templestowe and Pascoe Vale.
