This summer take your ice cream licking to a whole new level—literally. Now is the time to overcome your fear of heights and take the Sky Tower lift to the 50th floor and visit the revamped Sky Café for some Kapiti ice cream and cheeses.
The ‘coldstone’ ice cream bar allows you to mix up your own flavour combinations over a cooled stone slab before eating to your heart’s content.
If you’re more of a savoury person, then sit back and relax with a cheeseboard and vino…or, chomp down on delicious grilled cheese sandwiches and baked cheese dishes for two—think Kapiti Kahikatea Camembert, truffle oil and mushroom. Drooling yet?
The café is colourful and allows 360 degree views over our fine city, so soak in the vista and try naming all the volcanos. With the view, the wine, the cheesy goodness, this may be one of the most romantic things to do in Auckland this summer.
