Ascot and you shall recieve....

Remember that hiatus?'ll start on Monday. Ish. Okay - I found another excuse to hit McDonalds up for their free aircon and free wifi - and hell, the mango smoothies aren't half bad.

Okay - I have found THE find of the decade. Um. The decade so far that is - which of course is just over a week old. I stumbled across this place by accident yesterday whilst strolling down Racecourse Road at Ascot.  It seems like only a few weeks ago that I prayed to the god of dessert and said "Please...PLEASE let there be some kind of late-night dessert cafe somewhere on the northside of Brisbane?"

Introducing Caffe e Gelato Milany - Prayer heard. Answered. And how! Not only does Milany's have a decent range of gelato available - but they also have a veritable smorgasmord of yumminess (Figuratively speaking.You still have to order from a menu!), most of which are perfect for sharing and include just about every combination of gelato, poffertjes, fruit - and even pasta. You heard me! There is also a wide range of gelato cocktails.

  • Summary: Gorgeous, decadent, shareable desserts. Authentic, amazing gelato. Heaven on earth. 
  • Tip:  Perfect for after dinner - or anytime really (do we NEED rules for gelato-time?). Order a shareable dessert (or two) - which of course means lots of gazing into eyes and feeding each other. OR - grab some takeaway gelato and wander down Racecourse Road towards the river. Lovely on Summer nights. :)
  • Transport: Racecourse Road is easily accessible by bus - and there is plenty of off-street parking if you drive.
  • Where: 4/53 Racecourse Road, Hamilton.
  • When: Tuesday-Sunday 12pm-10pm
  • Cost: Single scoops will set you back around $3-4. Three scoops were around $6.50. Some of the more extravagant desserts hit the $20 mark - but don't forget these are huge and shareable - so all things considered, I think this is verrrry reasonable.
  • Websites:
  • Perfect For: After dinner (hell - before dinner too!), late-night rendezvous', romantic summer dates, something a little bit different.
  • Downsides: I'm trying to think of some. Really...
