The sun burns bright, and so does our passion for damn good desserts. Perth is full of fabulous places to grab some yummy summer sweets, so read on to discover our favourites!
Okay guys, we know you’ve been trying to stick to those new year’s resolutions. And we applaud you for your efforts – but really, who has time for #fitspo and #cleaneating when there are sundaes to be eaten? More specifically, the glorious ‘South Park’ sundae served up at Gusto Gelato. We’re talking caramel gelato, chocolate mousse cream and crushed nuts – basically all the essential food groups. Just stick it in an IV bag and hook us up, because we can’t eat it fast enough.
Friendly, laid-back and mercifully air-conditioned, Bakers Terrace Lunch Bar is the perfect summer hangout. It’s got a good mix of healthy meals and wickedly indulgent desserts, and we reckon you’ll find the selection of mini tarts very intriguing indeed. They’re beautifully flavoursome, but light enough not to weigh you down if it’s sweltering hot outside.

If you love being ahead of the foodie curve, we’ve got five words for you: white chocolate malt vegemite gelato. The maverick gelato maestros over at Stampede have a real fondness for coming up with flavours that nobody’s tried before, and this is merely the latest in a long line of smash hits. It’s sweet and creamy, with that unmistakably Aussie hint of Vegemite. You simply have to try it – and trust us, you’ll be glad you did!
Nitrogen gelato has been around for a while, but it’s still extremely cool (see what we did there?). Plus, it’s awesome to watch them make it, and they don’t make it any better than at Ibiza N2. These guys use their expertly crafted ice cream as the basis for all sorts of lush desserts, and our personal fave is the Mambo Chu. That’s chocolate gelato with hazelnuts, a chocolate dome and a custard choux shoved in for good measure. Heaven!
When the sun is really beating down, you’ll need more than just a dessert. You’ll need something as cool and refreshing as it is dreamily sweet, and that’s just where ChiCho Gelato comes in. This slick, marble-barred gelato joint does the best lemonade spider you’ve ever tasted! It’s made with their own top-quality gelato, and it’ll make you wonder how you ever survived a summer without it.
