I'm a freelance writer living in the beautiful river town of Mannum in South Australia dreaming of the day I can retire from the 9-5 to write full-time.

The next time you visit the riverside town of Mannum in South Australia, take a cruise down the main street and keep your eye out for a brand new business that has just opened up. Izzy's Ice Creamery and Coffee Bar has opened its doors just in time for the summer season for holiday makers heading to the river.

Proprietors, Ray and Rhonda, are locals with their hearts in the town and a dream of seeing their ice creamery become the go-to place for visitors looking for an alternative kind of refreshment.

A family treat or a quiet coffee - Izzy's has both

To cool you down on a warm day, they offer a range of ice-creams and gelatos in thirteen different flavours ranging from old favourites like chocolate, vanilla and honeycomb to cookies and cream, salted caramel, coconut and lemon/lime, along with milkshakes and thick shakes.

For something a bit more warming, try their Australian-produced Di Bella coffees or one of a variety of teas accompanied by a selection of cakes, slices and Belgian waffles.

The Ice Creamery is lovingly named 'Izzy's' after proprietor Ray's pride and joy – his classic 1958 MG Roadster, which in turn was named after Isadora Duncan, the famed movie star who met her fate at the hands of such a car. If you're lucky you may see the striking red roadster parked right out the front where it becomes a bit of a talking point for visitors.

The shop itself, built in 1895 was originally owned by Samuel Smith & son, founders of the Yalumba winery. Though it has been through a number of changes in the ensuing years, it was purchased by Ray in 1979 and he has lived there ever since. The ice creamery has been a long-held ambition for both he and Rhonda that has finally come to fruition.

Izzy's Ice Creamery brings back the feel of a retro milk bar with a modern twist and is the perfect place to round off your next visit to Mannum.
