Given that such a huge part of our year leaves us Brisbaners in a hot, sweaty mess, it’s always good to know where to find the closest frozen treats. Here’s our list of the best of Brisbane’s ice cream parlours.

Mövenpick Ice Cream

Creamy Swiss ice cream in The Barracks precinct in Brisbane City. Open late, Mövenpick is the perfect way to escape the heat post-movie or dinner, or even for a cheeky pop-in on your way out of the city after work!

Mövenpick, 5-61 Petrie Terrace, The Barracks, Shop 15, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, +61 07 3367 3988


One of the most famous Australian-born gelato chains recently made it to Brisbane, and we’re all still clutching our stomachs with glee. Gelatissimo is made fresh daily in-store and always has an inventive flavour or two going. Burnt caramel and pecan is a definite winner.

Gelatissimo, Shop 3, Corner of Albert & Queen St, Brisbane, Australia, +61 07 3012 9797

Mister Fitz’s

Mister Fitz’s is where you go when you’ve had a rough week and you need to bury your woes in a pile of sugar, dairy and gluten. This isn’t just an ice cream shop, it’s an ice cream sandwich shop. Be prepared for a full/sick belly and a full heart.

La Macelleria

This quaint gelateria is a little finer than most. They use premium ingredients, so you’ll find some delicious flavours like Mandorlino, made with almond and hazelnut paste, amaretto and caramelised almonds—and that’s just the beginning. For a true Italian feel, give this delight a shot.

La Macelleria, 10-29 Florence St, Teneriffe, Brisbane, Australia, +61 0423 286 542

LICK! Ice Cream

Lick! is famous for its divine, creamy strawberry ice cream sold each year at the Ekka show. You can also find Lick! in gourmet grocers around Brisbane, but head to their store at Graceville to try new flavours, such as mango & roasted coconut ice or macadamia praline.
