Located in the suburb of Five Dock, Small Joys Gelato is close to the city and not even too far from western suburbs either. Sharing with Pings casual restaurant, the gelato store is easy to spot with the bright signage and welcoming exterior.
The artisanal gelato shop makes gelato Italian style, featuring a great range of flavours and even incorporate heaps of Asian flavours such as Hong Kong Milk Tea, Umesho sorbet and black sesame to name a few. There’s also loads of crowd favourites like jersey milk, peanut butter chocolate and one of our favourite; the fig macadamia cheesecake. They’ve done a great job here developing excellent flavour combos. They change it up fortnightly which is great to keep us coming back for more.
Matcha cream puffs and bubble waffles as well as deep fried ice cream can be found too.
We tried one of their bubble waffles, and with miso caramel popcorn gelato, topped with caramel sauce and popcorn, it’s honestly one of the greatest gelato flavours we’ve tried. Such a good combination, sweet and delicious, and paired with a crunchy waffle, it’s the perfect dessert.
We loved meeting Terrence and hearing about the store and wish the store the best! Hopefully we can revisit again soon.
