There’s no better way to spend a hot Adelaide summer than with cold, delicious ice cream! Lucky for us, there are plenty of ice creameries scattered across Adelaide that offer a multitude of flavours and dessert varieties. Take a look at 5 of our must-try’s below!

35 York St, Adelaide

Tucked behind Rundle St in Adelaide’s East End, you’ll find Scroll Ice Cream. The first and only outlet of its kind in Adelaide, offering Japanese teppanyaki style ice cream. Cold plates are used to thinly spread and roll up each unique flavour combination for the ultimate Instagram moment!

Must Try: Perfect Matcha

1/198/200 The Parade, Norwood & Various 

Serving Australians their gelato since 2002, it’s no surprise Gelatissimo is the go-to for all the classics! Regularly delivering fun new flavours is another reason Gelatissimo makes our list. From the moment you walk in, you’ll be hard-pressed to choose simply one scoop!

Must try: New limited Frose flavour made with Chandon

87 Glynburn Rd, Glynde 

In the East, discover Adelaide institution Gelato Bello. Known for its authentic Italian ice cream, offering flavours that include Baci, Bounty and Nutella (as well as the classics), it’s their sorbet that deserves a special mention – lemon is our favourite!

Must try: Toblerone gelato


75/77 Jetty Rd, Brighton & Various 

There’s nothing like ice cream by the beach, and Royal Copenhagen in Brighton hits the spot every time! Whether you want to grab a couple of scoops and head for a stroll on the beach, or dine in and discover their amazing dessert menu while watching the sun set over the jetty, there’s something to suit all.

Must try: Apple pie crepe


78 Gouger St, Adelaide

After taking home an international award for their pear, fig and gorgonzola ice cream at the 2017 Gelato World Tour in Italy, 48 Flavours is one Adelaide ice creamery you have to try. With their wonderfully experimental and unique flavours, we can’t go past the taro flavour (pictured below) and their frozen yoghurt range.

Must try: Any of the 48 flavours!
