Heven-yah’s addictive frozen treats have a loyal local following. Nabbing a posi in a reno’d 1950s corner building in Mermaid Beach, complete with recycled brick, polished cement flooring and original exposed hardwood ceilings, Heven-yah is the most charming Gold Coast gelateria we’ve ever laid eyes on! Secondly, it’s the only venue on the Coast using a traditional Pozzetti refrigeration system, with built-in tubs, imported direct from Italy. These gutsy young sisters have spent years mastering dozens of drool-worthy flavours from classic chocolate or, for vegans, the chocolate almond (made with almond milk), to the popular salted caramel, hazelnut or orange and poppy seed. We’re being bold and claiming this is hands down one of the best gelato bars on the Gold Coast.
