Auck­land’s best ice cream

Here’s our list of Auck­land’s best ice cream.

Central Leader - - OUT & ABOUT -

it in Italy, and now grace Auck­land with their 80 orig­i­nal recipes. They’ve whipped up gin­ger­bread­man and candy-cane flavours for Christ­mas, and say they’ll be serv­ing a very spe­cial ‘‘real al­co­hol cham­pagne’’ sor­bet on new year’s day.

Gi­apo - City Cen­tre

‘‘Wow deca­dence to the max!’’, en­thused one re­viewer of the Gi­apo ex­pe­ri­ence on Tri­pad­vi­sor. That pretty much sums the joint up. Ice creams here are ac­tu­ally edi­ble Faberge eggs and I wouldn’t be sur­prised to see live hum­ming­birds fly out of your mouth af­ter a first bite.

Ol­lies Burg­ers & Ice Cream -

Ol­lies has been serv­ing ice cream for nigh on 43 years. Their quin­tes­sen­tial cones need nei­ther froth nor frip­pery - cus­tomers re­turn gen­er­a­tion af­ter gen­er­a­tion for gen­er­ous scoops of clas­sic flavours. Pin­ball ma­chines and (what look like) gi­ant pop­pies add an Amer­i­can-diner-decked-out-forANZAC day vibe.

The Kapiti Store - City Cen­tre

Kapiti sells lick­able com­pan­ions for strolls ‘round the down­town wharves. Lemon­grass and ginger, black doris with creme fraiche, spicy ap­ple crum­ble, or some­thing more fa­mil­iar will see you fill a few loy­alty cards this sum­mer.
