Will a single serve be enough, or do you need a triple?
Always listed high up in the Tourism WA List of Most-Visited Places in the Swan Valley, Oggies also tops of the list of one of my family's favourite spots in this beautiful part of WA.

Oggies Ice Cream
Located within beautiful Swan Valley

Situated just off the main Swan Valley sprawl on West Swan Rd, Oggies provides a great place to grab an ice cream, a family lunch or a coffee with friends. Oggies Cafe is well positioned within great gardens with lots of room to take your ice cream alfresco or make use of the fabulous play area if you have kids with you. Kids will be kept well amused by the cubby house, outdoor toys and play ground equipment.

The Ice Cream

Heading up to the ice cream counter to see what flavours are being served at the time of your visit, is also the time you enter the world of indecisiveness and suddenly start feeling very torn between the 30 or so flavours teasing you from the display.

Fruity sorbets and ice creams
To help you along the path of decision making, ask for free samples; you are allowed to try as many of the flavours as you like. I can't complete my visit without trying at least three. Oggies make over 60 flavours altogether so you'll have to visit a few times to really be able to conclude your favourite frozen treat. For those on a gluten free diet, ask for the sorbets and you'll not be disappointed.

Oggies Ice Cream
Indecisive? Try two of my favourites; macadamia and vanilla bean, yum.

Your ice cream or sorbet can be served in a cone or a cup and be warned, the serve sizes are very generous.

Before you go ordering the big triple serve, check out the size of this single serve. Portion sizes are generous.

If you're feeling a little more adventurous, opt for one of the sundaes; my personal taste plays favourite to the banana split.

Lots of sweet treats to tempt you

Lolly Shop

Oggies Ice Cream
Take some sugar home with you

The Lolly Shop, is located in the corner of the ice creamery and provides you with even more choice to really spoil your sweet tooth. Choose from old fashion candies, sherbets, toffees and jellies and enjoy the resultant sugar high. Lollies can be purchased in little gift bags, if you're feeling generous.

You'll be spoilt for choice

The Cafe

The menu at Oggies lends itself well to a lunch in the sunshine, and there are plenty of tables both in and outside to relax and take your time over lunch. Orders are prompt, and the food is fresh. If your tastebuds don't run sweet, then the menu offers a great alternative with the toasties and foccacias seeming most popular.

Just outside of the cafe, Oggies has a multiple play areas for the kids, including some small toddler frames. As Oggies stands on quite a large plot, there's plenty of space for the hordes of crowds who descend on this famous ice cream shop. So don't be put off by a queue of people; instead take comfort that you're in the company of those with good taste. Enjoy.
