First Review by Lea

A must go in Sydney - Edit

Gelato Blue ice creams are excellent.
Among the staples I recommend the pistachio but you definitely have to try the seasonal flavour (Christmas pudding in December was really good, some time ago I really loved their chilli chocolate ice cream)

Pros: Delicious ice cream, All vegan, Broad choice of flavours

I went here after a recommendation from a friend and definitely glad I did! A large variety of ice cream and flavours that would be hard to find vegan anywhere else. Very good too!

Dazzling selection - Edit

I was completely bedazzled by the stunning selection of flavours - they all look so good. I ended up going for a twin serve of pistachio and black sesame which was wonderfully delicious. I only wish I'd been hungrier and then I'd have ordered more !
Definitely on the list for many re-visits.

Pros: So much to choose from

wow! - Edit

I'm just visiting Sydney so it was very difficult to choose the flavours as I wanted to try them all! I ended up having the sundae so I could try3 flavours; raspberry shortcake, cookies and cream and a salted caramel one. They all tasted amazing. I'm planning to go back tomorrow night so I can try another flavour. If you can only get to one vegan place in Sydney make it this one.

Pros: options

Fantastic - Edit

We have been here on 3 occasions and are always very impressed by the range and taste.I can never go past the pistachio and roasted hazelnut.The taste and texture is as good as dairy without the cruelty or mucus producing effects.I was initially worried about the coconut base as I have had some unsatisfactory coconut ice cream in the past.I am delighted to say I could not taste the coconut.

Pros: All vegan, Non soy, Incredibly authentic in taste and texture

Cons: Can get very busy

This family run gelato shop went completely plant-based in 2016!

Must try:
- Hazelnut
- Peanut butter
- Carrot cake
- Pavlova
- Choc mint

Pros: Great variety of flavours, Convenient location, Insta-worthy

Cons: None!

Mint choc chip vegan ice cream to die for! - Edit

This place totally took us by surprise - completely vegan but with long queues of people waiting to be served...in Newtown veganism is BIG! Delicious ice creams although the taste of coconut is quite prominent in some of the more delicate flavours. The mint choc chip however was better than the best dairy version we ever tasted! Yummo

omg. soooooo good!!!!!! - Edit

I'm in Sydney for less than a week. Gelato blue was in my shortlist of places to visit. I've now been twice and plan to go again tonight. So many flavours and options and it's so delicious and creamy. I really can't praise it enough (and I'm a massive ice cream snob). Do yourself a favour and get some in you!!!!

Pros: Delicious , So much choice, Lovely staff

Cons: I'll probably dream about this place

Wonderful Variety - Edit

Was excited to see so many different vegan options! Went with the peanut butter cornetto, lamington and pavlova - all awesome. The pav was my favourite though. Lovely customer service. Also had the dulche de leche cinnamon bun, which had great flavour, but was very dense and dry.

Wil this be Australia's first vegan gelato shop? - Edit

The gelato is good - go there. Now onto more important things:

The sweetest thing about this place is the ever diminishing dairy space in the corner of the display and the increasing vegan selection. (In fact, the dairy space is starting to look like a joke - the same way the "dairy free" sections often do in other gelato shops). The next sweet thing is seeing most people in the shop ordering in front of the vegan section - this place is littered with vegans with a much reduced number of inexorable cattle abusers licking their treats made with the suffering of innocent animals. TBH I'm not sure what's more exciting at Gelato Blue: the extensive vegan flavour selections or just the idea of a gelato shop that is primarily for vegans. There is a different air when going into a "vegan shop" than going into the dark corner where nonvegan shops have their "vegan alternatives;" where the vegan products are their pride and not some thorny concession to the "difficult people." And when plopped down and enjoying your gelato in their laid back seating area upstairs it is so much better knowing that the people around you are similarly licking products made with some consideration for peace rather than the abuse of animals. It's awesome!

However, this shop is not yet vegan. It appears to me that the business case for a vegan gelato shop is pretty much there, and it's probably only a matter of the owners having a good conversation about animal rights and understanding the moral imperative to be vegan themselves before they ditch the dairy altogether. This may be up to us vegan customers to not just be happy gelato consumers but to take a genuine interest in the people who work there and not fail to advocate for animal rights generally and within the context of their shop.

Pros: Tonnes of vegan goodness, and still on the way up

Dope place worth the money - Edit

While the price is something to scoff at, Newtown is renowned for bleeding you dry.

However, I find one cone/tub to be extremely satisfying in both craving and filling. I ordered the vegan coconut and it was delicious, even had coconut flakes in it, and I'm a texture person so that was a nice bonus. My mate ordered the vegan pavlova (which...has pavlova pieces in it...not quite sure how that's vegan but he said it was awesome).

Its in an awesome location, the customer service we got was a little lack luster but we all know what jobs are like and it was towards the end of the day. The gelato is bomb.com and has some awesome flavours like turkish delight, peanut butter and chocolate, cookies and cream! You can bet your ass I'm gonna be back to try them all



Pros: extensive flavour choices, great location, very satisfying

Cons: price...$5 for one serve, nothing else
