Ciccone & Sons is all about fresh, handmade gelato – just don’t expect a gaudy, fluorescent display filled with colourful mounds of ice cream in this homey gelataria and coffee shop. Owners Mark Megahey and Sean O’Brien have deliberately gone with a box freezer from which they scoop top down, so you’re always getting fresh gelato.
They make everything they can from scratch; so no pre-made bases, no paste flavouring from cans. The gelato is made using jersey milk for an extra creamy taste, with whole nuts and fresh fruit.
Choose flavours from the handwritten menu, where traditional flavours such as vanilla or chocolate mix with weekly specials such as mascarpone panna cotta, tiramisu, buttermilk, crème brulee (with a dulce de leche base) or flavours based on Pepe Saya products.
Take a seat on the wooden benches and enjoy your gelato with an espresso and cannoli (if they’re not already sold out) while listening to jazz. Takeaway boxes are available, too.
