If you’re a sucker for sweets or are in need of a new dessert bar in the northern suburbs, look for further than St. Louis House of Fine Ice Cream at their new location at North Adelaide!
Having opened the very first St. Louis down Gouger Street in the city three years ago, the hype of St. Louis has gradually grown and locals have fell in divine love both with the warm vibe and the tasty desserts. The North Adelaide location will be the fourth dessert bar to open following Glenelg and Tea Tree Plaza.
As with any dessert bar, choosing what to order is always the most difficult. I decided to go with the Caramel Popcorn Waffle with maple syrup, white chocolate and topped with dulce de leche, sweet ‘n’ salty popcorn and French Vanilla ice cream. The waffle was warm and of a reasonable size with caramelised popcorn placed neatly throughout the dish. Undoubtedly, it tasted as great as it sounds; you can never go wrong with chocolate, caramel, smooth ice cream and the rough texture of popcorn. I only wish there was slightly more maple syrup.
If things couldn’t get sweet enough already, we also ordered one of St Louis’s signature shakes. In fact, it was perhaps St Louis that began the milkshake crazy that sparked around Adelaide. Included on the menu are three choices of St Louis shakes: the Salted Caramel Waffle Shake, the Wild Strawberry Shake and the Peanut Butter Brownie Shake.
Surprisingly, the milkshake wasn’t as sweet as expected. With bits of waffle poking out the top and popcorn stuck around the sides, this particular milkshake seemed to be the drink version of the popcorn waffle I had just eaten.
Undoubtedly, this new location is bound to take off with flying colours. This weekend as part of their grand opening, St Louis will also be giving out free ice cream all day until 5pm! So make sure you don’t miss out!
Special thanks once again to Adelaide Food Central for the invite.
