Anyone who knows Redcliffe knows of its coastal beauty. Cool breezes, sand, waves, palms, the lagoon, the jetty, markets and the boardwalk stores. I go to Redcliffe to relax. To walk along the beach with my partner, pointing out all the different shells, or to sit in the breeze and just enjoy the atmosphere.
One of my all-time favourite places in Redcliffe is the Redcliffe Ice Creamery. It is situated approximately 100 metres from the beach, amongst the line of other stores, at 177 Redcliffe Parade.
Now, you might think (for the obvious reasons) that ice cream is the only type of consumable sold at this particular venue. Well, it isn't. Although Redcliffe Ice Creamery does boast a large range of delicious ice cream flavours (from the usual chocolate and berry flavours to the more exotic liquorice, ginger, coconut and tia maria mocha fudge) its menu offers a lot more.
Mexican snacks are available in the form of nachos (with beef or chicken, cheese and sour cream), burritos (chicken or beef) and tacos. Toasted sandwiches are also available with your choice of 1-3 fillings. Hot dogs, sundaes, cold drinks (milk shakes, fruit smoothies and more), coffee, slush puppies, coloured jellies and pancakes are all on the menu waiting to be ordered. The pancakes come in many flavours such as: Canadian, Banana, Butterscotch, Caramel, Strawberry, Chocolate and Lemon.
The beef nachos (with extra sour cream of course) is my usual order. Piled high on a medium-sized oval plate, they are a very satisfying meal. The Frozen Mudslide is my usual beverage of choice. Chocolate Ice Cream, Chocolate syrup, ice-cold milk and chocolate shavings make up this indulgent concoction and it is certainly worth it.
So if you're in Redcliffe any time soon and want to complete your experience with something refreshing, head into the Redcliffe Ice Creamery.
sounds super yummy! I've never heard of the place but I will have to go there soon :D

Sadly this place has slipped a bit over the years (in my opinion) and just recently the great range of icecream has been drasticaly shrunk to accomodate more cafe options. Personally I and my family will miss the great icecreams. Blood orange gelato being a favourite for all of us.
