We’ve all been in need of something to cool us down with the prolonged spell of warm weather and the perfect remedy will soon arrive in Newcastle in the form of a new ice cream and dessert parlour.
Describing itself as “the number one stop for a delectable range of gelato, desserts and hot puddings,” Icestone Gelato will open at 575 Westgate Road, just outside of the city, on Monday, August 13.
And it’s menu should send Geordie mouths watering. As well as plenty of gelato, which its name of course points to, there are a whole host of tasty treats ready to tempt Newcastle customers.
Cookie Dough dishes include Red Velvet, Nutella & Strawberry, Bubble Dough and White Choc & Oreo, while its Crepe range features options like Kinder Bueno and Nutella Spread and its rather epic Waffle selection ranges from Strawberry Delight to Peanut Butter.
Icestone’s Sundae selection is rather impressive too with Cookie Sundae, Royal Rocher, Blowing Bubbles and Mango Dreams among the ones set to be served up.
But for us, the pièce de résistance of the Icestone menu is its Back to School Puddings. Get ready to be transported back to the school dinner hall to tuck into the likes of Apple Crumble, Choc Pudding, Cornflake Tart, Jam Roly Poly, Chocolate Concrete and Sticky Toffee.
The Icestone Gelato menu also features a range of Freakshakes, Smoothies, Gateaux, Cheesecakes and Fondue.
Teasing the Newcastle opening, Icestone’s operations director Paul Morris commented: “Customers will be astounded by the decor and will then be blown away by the finest quality of desserts on offer that the Icestone Brand is well regarded for.
“We have waffles, crepes and cookie doughs which are always accompanied by the finest Gelato. Our famous Back To School classics are always a firm favourite.
“We are looking forward to bringing our quality to the Newcastle area and look to expand quickly in the North East as we anticipate a fantastic response to our store.
“We at Icestones pride ourselves on creating a great atmosphere and are very proud to be recognised as a very diverse company that cater for all members of the community.
“The atmosphere we create is very warm and will appeal to all. We look forward to welcoming our new customers and friends when the store officially opens.”
