Enjoy an iconic WA brand of ice cream in Rockingham
If you're looking for a hit of one of Western Australia's favourite ice cream brands without travelling down south, Rockingham is the go-to place.
Eye Scream Cafe is situated along Rockingham's beautiful foreshore and serves WA's famous Simmo's Ice Cream. If you're familiar with the brand, you'll know that it's made in one of the state's favourite holiday destinations, Dunsborough, and distributed to various stockists in Perth.
When I took my two children to Eye Scream, it was a beautifully sunny day – far too nice to say no to ice cream, even before lunchtime.
Eye Scream Cafe sits directly opposite the foreshore reserve and beach, making it an ideal location from which to grab your favourite icy flavours and sit on the sand, or you can sit in the café and enjoy the choice of waffles, sweet and savoury crepes and breakfast.
There are around 30 different flavours to choose from, including passionfruit, cheesecake, cookies and cream and mocha, plus pink and blue bubblegum, which are popular with the kids. As much as I'm sure my almost 3 year old would have liked the pink bubblegum, vanilla was the order of the day. She's still developing that little palate, I tell myself.
They also serve a delicious coffee, along with plenty of other hot and cold drinks, including fresh fruit juices, smoothies and milkshakes. They serve breakfast daily until 11am, and the menu choices include eggs, pancakes and crepes.
So we finished our ice creams – well, I finished mine then ate whatever my toddler hadn't, because, you know, hate to waste and all that – and off we went to have a play. The only problem with ice cream before the playground is the amount of sticky sand that comes home with us, but no biggie.
It was a lovely morning outing centred around some of life's little joys. Eye Scream Cafe is a delightful spot to enjoy delicious Simmo's Ice Cream before a trip to the beach or play in the park.
