Affogato Gelateria is a small, boutique gelato shop near The Mezz, in Mount Hawthorn. It is brand new to the area, just opening in late October 2016.
The gelato is all homemade on site. We arrived early for our visit, and the different flavours were just being restocked in the cabinet. As we watched, new flavours were completed and brought out from the kitchen.
While there are traditional favourites such as rum and raisin and vanilla flavours available, you will also discover new and different ones such as pear Danish pastry, blueberry, cheesecake and biscottino. We also spotted a vegan salted caramel. How good is that? Everyone can enjoy!
We were greeted by the manager, a lovely Italian gentleman, who welcomed us as we walked in. We ordered a simple scoop of vanilla for little Miss, her favourite. This went down a treat! I snuck a little taste. It was delicious! Sweet, but not syrupy sweet, and so creamy. Some of the best gelato I’ve had.
There is comfortable seating inside Affogato Gelateria, with a padded bench and chairs along one wall, as well as alfresco seating outside under shady umbrellas. There are no high chairs I could see, but there is plenty of space to park up a pram.
The inside of Affogato Gelateria has a fun, colourful ice-cream themed mural on the wall. Miss almost 3 loved picking out the different features, from the little boat sailing an ice cream sea to the ice lollies and candy canes.
If you visit, I suggest bringing cash if you can. There is a $15 minimum for EFTPOS. Otherwise, you will pay a surcharge for using a credit card. Our scoop gelato cost us $5 cash ($5.50 had I paid by ApplePay), but it was a generously sized scoop, so we were pretty happy with that.
Where Affogato Gelateria is located, it would be a great to head to for dessert and coffee after a meal, or as a treat after shopping or a play in the park.
Affogato Gelateria is located at 148 Scarborough Beach Road, Mount Hawthorn, just downstairs at the front of The Mezz Shopping Centre.
Affogato Gelateria & Espresso Bar is open from 9am to 10pm seven days a week.
Why not combine your trip to Affogato Gelateria with a visit to Braithwaite Park? It’s just down the road. Perfect for a play and ice cream date.
