Yummy gf ice-cream and cone! Only $1 extra for the gf cone. Loads of gf flavours and staff make the ice cream in the back using new ice cream tubs and clean scoops!

The best place I have ever had ice cream!

Honestly so tasty and good and reasonably priced compared to other local places. Sometimes a bit busy around 7-9pm but other than that you can always just walk in.

They take coeliac very seriously and: - have a GF cone - will scoop for coeliacs from fresh ice cream containers in a separate area with new scoop to prevent Cc

They also have a lot of vegan/df options for those who are also DF.

Highly recommend for Coeliac! Delicious GF ice cream options available. Staff are very knowledgeable of Coeliac and if you tell them you are Coeliac they will scoop your ice cream from a fresh container to avoid any cross contamination. They also offer GF waffle cones. A must try if in Wellington!

Amazing. As the other comments say, they will scope out the ice cream from fresh containers out the back and they have GF cones too.They have allergy snd coeliac signs up too, asking you to make staff aware. Highly recommend.

Amazing range of flavours with lots of gf flavours!! And delicious gf cones (on request). Will scoop from new container on request and the gf cones are kept separately, so cross-contamination is not a problem - you can simply focus on the yummy taste!! Highly recommend!! :)
