Time Out Melbourne

Frozen dairy you both want, and won't have to queue up for

Black Velvet Espresso

At this espresso bar in the CBD they're one upping your iced coffees and serving espresso ice cream cones. Melbourne.


If you're crazy for that sweet, sweet Gelateria Primavera gelato from Spring Street Grocer and can’t face the line, Neapoli in Russell Place is owned by the same crowd and you can get the gelati here – with a glass of Prosecco on the side. Melbourne.

Candied Bakery

This Aussie/American bakery-diner hybrid has the soft serve machine cranking right this second with coconut milk ice cream. Spotswood.

The Merrywell

You know, we don’t always love the casino but over summer, that huge block of cool marble and frosty air-conditioning shines. Hit up the Merrywell for a frothy root beer spider. Southbank.

Sookie La La Diner

This is a brand new Art Deco diner they're serving rock and roll and a supersized sundae topped with nuts, caramel, strawberry sauces and waffles. Northcote.

The Farm Café

The fresh produce loving folks at this cafe down Abbotsford Convent way have just bought a soft serve machine and they’re busting out all the flavours from cherry to chocolate, all made with an organic milk base. Abbotsford.
