Had to get the google maps out to find this place, tucked away in a group of shops. Oldish style decor almost set in the good old days. Home made chocolates,coffee, lots of icecream flavours, but nothing really outstanding

This home made ice - cream is absolutely delicious. With so many flavors to choose from, this is the hard part of the experience. Do yourselves a favour - make your taste buds sing. Oh, the staff are great too - very friendly.

We loved the icecream we had here. It was full of flavour and just delightful. Thoroughly enjoyed it, you could really taste the Malteser flavour in the Malteser variety and banana and caramel was fantastic as well

We have had 8 different ice creams and sorbets here over the past two weeks. I can honestly say that the customer service has been great (served by three different people). I don't believe some of the previous reviews were genuine. The serving sizes are...More

We stopped at the orginal fix to get some ice cream. The icecream is beautiful and the coffee is delicious, 😋 the cakes are really tasty as well. The service was very friendly and helpful. They also had chocolates. Definitely coming back soon.

These guys make the best ice cream around ! Hard to choose from the wonderful range of flavours but the Ferrero Rocher is a personal favourite. A trip to Merimbula isn't complete without a visit to the original fix

I didn't know this place had bad reviews for ice cream. Just like previous poster's review about the salted caramel, I had the same experience - you cant taste anything but salt. Scoop size is small compared to other places. Some customers' requests to sample...More
