Like just about any new place I discover I found out about this little gelato gemstone in Subiaco on Instagram.
While their cronuts are particularly visually enticing, it was the new and quirky that prompted my visit. I was here to sample the mysterious looking black sesame gelato.
Served on a waffle cone the extremely creamy gelato was piped high and looked picture perfect – hence the photo.
I didn’t really know what I expected it to taste like. The only thing I really recognise about sesame seeds is their crunch, but as this was an ice cream I knew I wouldn’t be experiencing that again.
The gelato was sweet but not sickly, the texture was incredibly smooth and the whole ice cream was extremely easy to eat so it didn’t take long to devour mine. It was one of the most refreshing ice cream experiences I think I’ve ever had. Of course Whisk Creamery is also a bit of a whiz when it comes to other desserts. Their cronuts are also quite experimental, served with toppings such as caramel popcorn pieces, fairy floss and lightly burnt marshmallows.
Choosing just one thing to sample on the menu is hard, so taking a friend and trying a couple of things together might be a good idea.
The salted caramel cronut appears to be the most popular cronut on the menu, several customers ordered it in the short time i was visiting.
This place is clearly popular but the staff are efficient. There are only a few tables inside and the atmosphere is quirky and cosy with a giant blackboard taking up one wall.
