We were only talking about a short month ago that Melbourne's Southbank only had one quality ice creamery establishment to gain that much needed ice cream to enjoy along the Yarra; however all of a sudden Melbourne now has a choice of three different promenade front ice cream establishments to buy that much wanted quality gelato flavour.
It's like how that saying goes "ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream" - it could be that deep down many of us Melburnians are wanting this - the scream for ice cream, and then all of a sudden the law of attraction had to deliver, and deliver it did. Maybe it could be a sign of a warm summer season coming up? Or a changing trend? Only time will tell.
We still have Calatrava just around the food court area at the Crown Entertainment Complex. Always gathering the crowds on a hot day; especially for their pistachio and hazelnut ice cream gelato served in a cute coloured cup with that contemporary, chic Italian theme.
Now we have Baci. Oh my goodness. I love this place. Thank goodness for the recent Crown renovations, a great little and elegant ice cream stand has manifested itself with a pretty red lip seat that adds a piece of art to this quality establishment. Hazelnut and pistachio wins again, and so does the jaffa gelato. Now Melbourne all of a sudden is into ice cream again, giving those doughnuts a good run for their money.
Last but not least, Melbourne has just manifested its fourth (now equal to Sydney's number) Lindt Chocolat Cafe in Southgate. I h ave already covered my experience with the black forest ice cream. More can be discovered by clicking here.
Are we really screaming for ice cream along the Yarra? Only time will tell once again, and you can be the judge. The question is to lick or to not lick. Either way enjoy.
