Coccogelo

We’ve walked past this joint numerous times but never ventured in. So last Friday, we were looking for dessert and decided to check them out.

Housed on the ground floor of a refurbished shop house, the gelato joint is a mix of chic dark brown colors with intersecting Wallpapered chars gets right out of a Grimm Brothers fairy tale. The ice cream display counter is towards the back of the shop, and boasts about 10 flavours, such as grape Yakult, banana Tim tam, pistachio, strawberry, and chocolate.

Greeted by a couple of enthusiastic servers who looked like Uni students earning some pocket money, we were given taste samples of the flavours on show. We settled on a mix of the grape Yakult and banana Tim tam in a cup. It’s cost $4.80.

The gelato was good, with the right amount of flavoring and ingredients. The ice cream was a little too sticky for my looking, but generally went down well.

The place was nicely packed on a Friday night by a coterie of after-dinner people and some students out for some ice cream. The ambience was a nice relaxed chill, with enough noise to feel that your conversation isn’t echoing off the walls.

Good for hanging out with friends.
