Undo that top button, guys. Hot cross buns with gelato inside have arrived for Easter and it’s fair to say our excitement has reached three exclamation mark levels (!!!).
After the delicious success of their crazy food experiment last year—to see if hot cross buns and gelato could live together in perfect harmony—Mermaid Beach’s Heven-yah Gelateria is bringing back this bucket list Easter treat and we can’t bloody wait.
The gorgeous Heven-yah sisters are again teaming up with The Bread Social—who will supply the buttery, sticky hot cross buns—and stuffing creamy gelato inside for $8 a pop. While we can’t confirm what flavours will be available when you visit, Heven-yah promises a rotating selection of Easter-inspired creations to fill these little pillows of happiness.
Previous offerings have included hazelnut with Nutella and biscotti crumble, and a Cioccolato All’arancia AKA Belgian chocolate gelato with candied orange peel. Or, perhaps you might time your visit with the arrival of a coffee and mocha stracciatella option on the blackboard. Decisions, decisions.
You can grab this drool-worthy treat from Mermaid Beach’s Heven-yah over the first half of the Easter long weekend (Thursday 29 to Saturday 31 March). Or, DIY at home, ‘cause when you order a half-litre gelato takeaway tub, you can pick up a four-pack of sticky hot cross buns for an extra 10 bucks. Hop to it!

Where: Heven-yah Gelateria, 2/2387 Gold Coast Highway, Mermaid Beach
