Fresh local ingredients, including full-fat milk, vanilla bean, cream, sugar and a ‘secret ingredient’ are blended to order onsite by specially trained ‘Brrr-istas’. This is pure ice cream theatre.

23. Moro Gelato

best-ice-cream-spots-in-cape-town
Stefano Moro, Heine van Wyk and Charlene Stephenson met in Milan years ago and, with their shared passion for gelato, visited the Italian foodie capitals of Bologna and Parma, researching and sampling along the way, so they could bring us Moro Gelato.
Here, it’s all about making gelato the way Nonna Moro used to. While touchingly paying tribute to Stefano’s Nonna, they combine their collective passion with the same real flavours and high standards she once used.
Moro’s creamy gelato is freshly made each day from pure local ingredients, while its sorbets are made using seasonal, juicy fruits. Aside from its Woodstock shop, Moro sells its products at the Oranjezicht City Farm Market from a beautiful cart – and we can barely contain our excitement because they will be opening a shop in Long Street soon too!
How it’s served cone or cup, as well as takeaway tubs (or ‘couch boxes’) in 500ml or 1kg tubs.
Wow factor We love the pistachio, caffe (rich coffee), cioccolato (deep dark chocolate) gelato, and the pomegranate and Marchese sorbet!
Contact 021 448 5272, info@morogelato.co.za
Location Moro Gelato, 7 Ravenscraig Road, Mason’s Press, Unit 011, Woodstock, Cape Town
You can also get the ice cream at Oranjezicht City Farm Market, Granger Bay, Cape Town.

    The Creamery in Palmyra

    They have the most delicious waffles I have ever tasted and ice cream to boot. The décor is stylish and reminiscent of a 50s ice cream parlour. However the music spoiled my experience. Instead of playing music appropriate to that era, they played awful club music which the staff sung along to. The cherry on top was hearing a remix of Haddaway’s “what is love?”

    Although the staff were friendly and knowledgeable they would have made more of an impression if they wore vintage garb.

    You forgot the best original artisanal Italian gelateria in Cape Town – IceDream in Hout Bay! Everything homemade and super delicious! They’ve been there over 20 years and the Italian family who run it are lovely. Definitely a must visit!
