The weather might be cooling down in South East Queensland, but that doesn’t stop us from indulging in a scoop or two! We’ve sourced the best scoops in Brisbane and beyond for you to satisfy your cravings all year round:

Milani House of Gelato – Ascot, Brisbane

The journey of Milani started in 2004, when owner Lin travelled to Italy and fell in love with the timeless favourite of gelato and the countless flavours it brings. Lin embarked on a training course in Sydney, Australia, where he strove to master the art in its creation. Since completing the training, Lin sources the freshest ingredients in Brisbane and lovingly hand-crafts his gelato each morning, bringing the best tastes in town!

Gelato Messina – Various Locations

It’s the classic, family favourite – and for good reason, it’s amazing. Every cabinet hosts 40 flavours, with 35 there constantly and then five rotating weekly specials. Each flavour is created by a unique recipe known only to Messina, and they use only the highest quality ingredients to ensure the taste is nothing short of extraordinary. And their James Street store only opened last month, but we’re very glad they did!

La Macelleria – West End, Brisbane

La Macelleria was born back in Bologna, when two friends wanted to follow their dream and bring the real Italian gelato across to Australia. The men, both named Matteo, travelled to Australia to start a real and traditional gelataria like the ones they adored at home. The aim of La Macelleria was to bring the pleasure of typical Italian gelato to Aussie people in a way we’ve never experienced before, and boy oh boy are we happy they did!

Scoop Gelati – Burleigh, Gold Coast

Initially starting out in Byron Bay and Lennox Head, Scoop Gelati is the little family business with big game. They make all of their flavours daily and onsite, with classic flavours enticing any ice cream connoisseur – like boysenberry, triple chocolate, or a refreshing lemon sorbet. Then, for the more adventurous, there’s Himalayan rock salted caramel with white chocolate and a Ferroro Rocher flavour that are both out of this world!
