When the heat turns up – turn to these venues for delicious frozen treats.

Now is the ideal time of year to start indulging in a frozen dessert, or two. From ice cream, to gelato, to icy poles, there are some wonderful things being slung out by talented businesses throughout Perth.

And we’ve got the guide to keep you cool this summer.

Chicho Gelato is a new wave gelataria offering a vibrant range of gelato and sorbet, with up to 20 different flavours on rotation at any time.

Everything sold is churned daily, all made in house with fresh ingredients – and with a focus on seasonality. If you haven’t visited the Northbridge store, it’s a gorgeous sight with terrazzo tables, a free flowing chocolate tap and in-store limited edition desserts too.

Flavours here include the likes of  Thai milk shortbread, blood orange sorbet, rosewater stracciatella and Mexican chilli chocolate.

Kuld Creamery

They started as a little laneway store in Mount Lawley, but now Kuld Creamery have expanded into a brick and mortar offering as well in Fremantle.

There’s six flavours on offer each week, rotating out to give you even more excuse to head in each week for another fix. Stellar scoops include carrot cake, vegan lavender with banana cream, London fog and burnt mallow. With a crisp cone to stack on, we recommend you double down so you can indulge in two different flavours at once.

Whisk Creamery

Artisanal family-run business Whisk Creamery started with a single store in Subiaco before adding a second in Northbridge to please the masses.

Gelato here all comes as soft serve, enjoyed in a cup or cone, or give it a sprinkling of pixie dust to make it even more special in the form of mermaid or unicorn gelato, or even served in a pancake like holder inspired by Japanese desserts.

Flavours on offer generally tend to be more traditional, like salted caramel, Italian hazelnut, Belgian chocolate and so on, plus some more unique ones like ube and coconut (it’s bright purple!).

Delish Ice

Gourmet ice pops are so retro that they’re modern – and they tick all the boxes when it comes to a sweet treat.

Delish Ice brings a vintage vibe to what they do, serving up their pops at markets, weddings, parties and festivals – and they can be hired for your next gig.

Keep your eye out for their gorgeous caravan or pop carts, or you can buy online via their website too by picking and mixing your fave flavours. From basil and elderflower, to ginger beer, mint and lime, or raspberry lemonade – there’s something for everyone.

Roho Bure

When you hear the words vegan ice cream, you might be a bit worried on what to expect: but if you’re dining at Roho Bure, you’re in for a real treat.

Located in South Fremantle, their small batch ice cream is made from scratch using a handful of carefully sourced natural and organic ingredients. The team at Roho want you to feel as good as their products taste.

The menu has five permanent flavours, and one weekly special on their menu rotating in and out. Staple flavours include the likes of salted maple peanut, coconut cardamom and strawberry jam, coconut vanilla, chicory chocolate, and coconut caramel.

It’s guilt free: which is the best way to dessert in our opinion.

Pietro Gelateria

East Victoria Park’s Pietro Gelateria is pumping out some pretty damn impressive gelato – bringing quality to the busy Albany Highway strip.

Their roster of flavours tends to change up regularly, but you can usually find some constant presences, like mint stracciatella, yoghurt and berry, orange and fennel, or ricotta, orange and dark chocolate. But they’re also pushing the limit with concoctions like watermelon, ginger and hibiscus sorbetto, peach, mascarpone and almond gelato, or maple bacon gelato.

Gusto Gelato

Gusto Gelato handcrafts gelato in small batches using traditional artisan production techniques, using fine ingredients to make everything they sell from scratch.

When you head in-store, the gelato is piled high in freezer tubs and laden with sauces, fruit and lollies to enhance each scoop.

They develop their flavours with a tongue in cheek approach, and a nod to nostalgic profiles we’re all familiar with such as wagon wheels, banoffee, and even chips ahoy.

Stampede Gelato

Hand made using ingredients local to the South-West of Western Australia, Stampede Gelato use no hydrogenated or refined fats, or harmful emulsifying agents.

They also take a lighter approach to sugar, so that what they produce is a naturally delicious product that really showcases the ingredients used.

You can find these guys in The Mantle in Fremantle, where you can get your hands on the likes of raspberry white choc lemonade sorbet, buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup gelato, mountain dew Oreo gelato or even vegemite white chocolate gelato.

Yes, the flavour combinations are on the weird side – but they actually work so well that you’ll find yourself addicted for more.

Take 5 Icecream Parlour

Baldivis Square might be slightly out of the way if you’re not a local, but well worth a trip so you can try out Take 5 Icecream Parlour.

These guys are creating and scooping up some impressive ice cream flavours – of which you can also try if you visit Mount Lawley’s Getting Chunky and get an ice cream cookie sandwich.

The store’s flavours include some unique creations like blueberry cheesecake, watermelon and strawberry (dairy free), Tim Tam, or peanut butter and banana.

La Paleta

Hand made ice pops and ice creams by La Paleta are the ideal dessert to take your party or event to the next level.

Their creamy offerings use fresh WA dairy to make the likes of salted caramel, raspberry cream cheese, mango and salted coconut, and so on. Or there’s the icy versions, like cucumber and lime, raspberry lemonade or watermelon.

All products are gluten free and the non-dairy ones are vegan too making them even friendlier to a wide range of people. Order them online and keep your freezer stocked with treats to enjoy at any time.
