The service at the store was great. The lady who served me offered to give my daughter and I taste tests. She was also very patient when my daughter was trying to decide what to order.
Eventually we ordered the lemon gelato for my daughter and the espresso and pina colada ice cream for me. My favourite flavour was the pina colada. With the first lick there was a blunt tang of flavour which then developed into a sweet creamy aftertaste. My daughter seemed to enjoy her lemon gelato. I tasted some of it and found it slightly bitter but fragrant.
Snapshots of a summer day at Augustus Gloop Gelatery.
Augustus Gloop Gelatery is a great place to linger during the summer months. Its black, white and aqua-green interior walls were contrasted with the brightly lit freezers. The freezers were populated with more than twenty ice cream and gelato flavours running across the length of the store.
At the back of the store there was a large glass screen that allowed customers to view the production process. Outside there were tables available for customers on the footpath. Music flowed onto the street from inside the store allowing for indoor and outdoor enjoyment. The ambiance paired with quality desserts drew crowds of local families from their homes.
If you are looking for crowds, hubbub and dessert then Augustus Gloop Gelatory is worth a visit.
I believe that this dessert store has blown a breath of 'urban' into Pascoe Vale suburban.
