It's never too cold for ice-cream
Dairy Bell Ice- Cream Warehouse is one of my favourite places to have ice-cream in a cone.

Dairy Bell Warehouse - the home of my favourite ice-cream

There are so many flavours that your tastebuds can't help but to be tantalised. I personally like the the Rocky Road Supercone - Rocky road ice-cream covered in chocolate and nuts in a waffle cone. It is one of the few "drumstick" style pre-made ice-creams that they offer. Most of the flavours need to be chosen and will be scooped into a cone of your choice, waffle or wafer.

There is a bit of seating inside although not much and around the back there is also outside seating although not much, and unfortunately the noise of the traffic being so close does seem to interfere with the ambiance despite the radio playing in the background. Often I sit across the road near the football ground as it is much more open.

While we were there we saw a few families with children on bikes arriving to buy ice cream. Although it's called a warehouse, it's more like an ice-cream parlour where you can buy sundaes, cones and milkshakes.

You can also order ice-cream cakes for birthdays and other special occasions and to my astonishment also an ice-cream wedding cake.

There are quite a few outlets but the East Malvern site was the first Dairy Bell Factory and has a bit of an old world feel about it, even though it was opened as late as 1970.

I meant to take a picture of my ice-cream but in all the excitement I forgot!

Getting there -
Without a car - very close to East Malvern Station, just walk across Waverly Park Football oval to get there.

For those interested there is also a second factory in Sydney at 44 Australia Street, Camperdown, NSW 2050

With a car - There is not a lot of parking but enough as people come and go very frequently to buy ice-cream but don't stay to eat it there. Parking it free.
