Winter, schminter; us Brisbanites are always game for a scoop or two—chilly weather be damned!
When you live in the sub-tropics ice cream is a part of your year-round eating antics. A little breeze isn’t going to stop us from tucking into icy cold desserts on the regs.
So of course we were giddy upon hearing that fave Brisbane gelataria, La Macelleria are set to open up a second store… in West End! Since Bologna natives Matteo and Matteo (yes, yes, they have the same name) opened up their gorgeous gelataria three years ago in Teneriffe, locals have been lining up out the door for a taste of their traditional, artisan gelato.
West Enders get excited: your life just got made. Set to open this September—just in time for spring—La Macelleria West End will serve up all of their authentic Italian gelato flavours, including their homemade Nutella drizzling sauce (no, not kidding), ice pops and traditional gelato cakes.
All we have to do now is ride out the next few months. In the meantime, we’ll continue to eat La Macelleria Teneriffe out of house and home.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on their official launch date, so keep your eyes peeled!
What: La Macelleria West End
