Up North - Black Waffle Gelato @ Monday, July 31, 2017
Saturday 8th July
A neighbour told us about her friend's ice cream shop a while ago, and one day we came across a groupon, two scoops for $3.50 which was a pretty good deal. Add a free night and adventure seeking we ventured up far north to Northcote to the main street. It only took a couple months, but we made it!
This was one big shop! Not very space efficient in design with seats in the back.
Along with ice cream it's a cafe that sells coffee, and cakes.
$5 a scoop seems to be the standard these days.
Cakes, slices and tarts.
There's limited flavours (onlyy 12), half were vegan water based sorbets though there's a rotation on the flavours. In a hipster friendly area they were vegan labels which I admit are a repentant to me. We all know that sorbets are waterbased, a (v) is fine, but the whole word idk, might need to get a steak after this. XD
Bio guy had the chocolate and salted caramel. No tasting required, he's a simply guy with simple tastes. The salted caramel was pretty good, sweet and tangy he says.
That's one thick leakproof waffle cone! I can't tell where the cone ends and serviette starts though...
Meanwhile I liked the idea of breno but the waffle fragments were stale... What if they used those crispy pearls instead? The second scoops I had was pistachio which was awesome! Creamy, smooth and real.
In the fridge there were some cakes, perfect size for a couple people.
Seats in the back. There was almost no deco except for a few plants and very yellow sign.
A tv provided atmosphere? The lighting was very bright and not quite right...
That is one cool sign!
As we were leaving a bit after 8pm, that's when the crowds arrived.
Good gelato (not the Ferrero Rocher) at standard prices.
262 High Street, Northcote
Monday to Thursday 9am–10pm,
