The Best Dessert and Ice Cream Places in Brisbane
2/179 Grey Street, South Bank
Not limited to just ice cream, Cowch is a chocolate-lover’s heaven! Decadent desserts are their specialty. Try their ‘Naked Pops’ – your choice of a Vanilla, Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Bubble Gum, Strawberry or Peppermint ice cream on a stick, dipped in Milk, Dark, White or Caramel, then covered with your choice of toppings!
2. Flour & Chocolate
78 Old Toombul Road, Northgate | 621 Wynnum Road, Morningside | 77 Redcliffe Parade, Redcliffe.
If you haven’t sampled the amazing treats from Flour & Chocolate yet, we suggest you get to your nearest store ASAP. While there are sweet and savoury morsels to devour, we highly recommend the pastries, croissants, cakes and brownies. With regular favourites and rotating weekly specials, there is always something new to try. Knead Gelato is also sold at their Morningside and Northgate stores.
3. Max Brenner at South Bank
1/2 Little Stanley Street, South Bank | Westfield Carindale | Loganholme Hyperdome.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the amount of chocolate on offer at Max Brenners! Chocolate waffles for breakfast? Why not?? With a Mexican hot chocolate? SURE! Honestly, if you love chocolate and you haven’t been to Max Brenner’s, then GO NOW! But be warned they are super popular.
4. Gelateria Cremona in Rosalie
151 Baroona Road, Rosalie
The lovely Gelateria Cremona is famous for its delicious gelati, made fresh daily for your yummy enjoyment. They have an amazing array of flavours, including Ferrero Rocher that has actual chunks of Ferrero inside!
5. Gelato Messina
1/109 Melbourne Street, South Brisbane | 48 James Street, Fortitude Valley
Unique flavours of ice cream are what Gelato Messina do best. Their menu consists of 35 permanent flavours (we highly, highly recommend the Salted Caramel & White Chocolate!!), along with 5 rotating weekly specials. Gelato Messina even has their own dairy farm to produce the super creamy Jersey cow milk used in their recipes. Check out their special birthday cakes too – they are incredible creations!
6. Nodo Donuts
1 Ella Street, Newstead | 114 Grey Street, South Bank| 265 Hawthorne Road, Hawthorne | 25 Samuel Street, Camp Hill
Featuring 100% gluten-free offerings, Nodo Donuts is a must-try. With a philosophy of “EAT DONUTS FOR BREAKFAST,” Nodo focuses on health and naturally gluten-free ingredients to create fun and delicious treats for everyone. For kids, check out the waffles with coconut ice cream, berries, and organic maple syrup.
7. La Macelleria Gelateria
321 Montague Road, West End | 4/25 King Street, Bowen Hills | 6/300 Old Cleveland Road, Coorparoo Square
Some of the best, traditional Italian gelati in Brisbane can be found at La Macelleria Gelateria. Made with fresh milk, fresh cream, sugar and natural flavours, don’t mistake this for ice cream! Flavours include Stracciatella, Pistacchio, Caffe, Tiramisu and more.
8. Eat Street Northshore
221 MacArthur Avenue, Hamilton
If you want a variety of desserts, in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere then head to Eat Street Northshore. Visitors can indulge in sweet treats from a range of vendors including Chocolate Komberry Co., Dutch De Lites, Carcamo Gourmet Caramel Apples, Churro Lab and the Dessert Lab. The hard part will be trying to decide what to eat first!
Head to the Baskin-Robbins for a list of Brisbane locations.
Baskin-Robbins stock a variety of the most beautiful ice cream flavours. Each to their own, but we believe their Chocolate Mousse Royale would be a hit with the most dedicated of chocolate lovers. Baskin-Robbins also offer banana splits, sundaes, ice cream cakes, waffles and brownies.
10. Milani House of Gelato in Hamilton
4/53 Racecourse Road, Hamilton
Last, BUT NOT LEAST! Milani House of Gelato has won all sorts impressive awards. Not knowing there even were awards for this type of thing, we are impressed! Milani was nominated several times by Brisbane mums and dads, so this place must be good! Their website shows an array of yummy desserts; from the decadent Banana Split or Death by Chocolate, to the Coppa Della Casa featuring fruit salad and sorbet. Check out Milani for custom-made gelati cakes and other desserts to take away.
