Vibrant new gelateria Frost Gelato opens up in the heart of Geelong 

Frost Gelato Geelong needs to be at the top of your dessert hit list.

If there’s one thing we are obsessed with, it’s gelato. And if there’s one thing we need right now, it’s an authentic gelateria, serving up scoops of deliciousness right in the heart of town.

Opening on Friday, January 14 after a month of delays, Frost Gelato is a true celebration of gelato—think sweet, cold, silky smooth authentic goodness which needs to be served in an indulgent double scoop.

Keep up with the latest food and booze news here.

This vibrant and brightly-lit gelateria is the handiwork of the talented Geelong local Mostafa, the previous owner of Geelong Afghan Kebab, and although it’s the new kid on the block (literally), Frost Gelato has firmly established itself as one of the best spots to grab a scoop in town, with its unique flavour combinations, Insta-worthy fit-out and authentic, local vibes.

While it’s Mostafa’s first-ever foray into the cut-throat world of CBD ice cream, he’s decided to bring the big guns with a drool-worthy range of nearly thirty flavours. Here, everything Frost Gelato scoops up is lovingly and locally made with fresh, natural ingredients and we’re drooling over it. Lick your way through flavours like creme brulee, Malteser, Nutella, Pistachio, Pavlova, Ferrero Rocher, Golden Gaytime, Espresso, Oreo, Raspberry White Chocolate and Kinder Surprise. Want more? There’s also strawberry cheesecake, cookies and cream, bubblegum, vanilla bean, chocolate, salted caramel, cotton candy and sour strap!

You’ll also find a range of dairy-free and vegan-friendly options like lemon, raspberry, strawberry, passionfruit, dark chocolate and mango scoops. If that wasn’t enough, soft-serve ice cream is available too. Scoops range from $5-$9, depending on how many you get and take home tubs are available.

Not only does this CBD gem serve up deliciously authentic gelato, but they also specialise in a delectable range of pastries (cakes and Baklava) and caffeinated goodness. You can also customise your own milkshake.

Go on, we won’t judge.

As for the fit-out, you’ll be greeted with neon lights, colourful lanterns, a bunch of seating, greenery and a beautiful mural — more of an “Instagram Wall” – containing a large set of butterfly wings for all your Insta-pics.

The best part of all though is the opening hours which sees the gelateria scooping deliciousness from 11am all the way to 11pm and midnight on weekends. Prepare for this place to became the go-to in town for those late-night ice-cream hankerings.

Frost Gelato is located at 169-171 Ryrie Street, Geelong and is open seven days a week from 11am until late. Find out more here
