On a hot day walking the wharf around Cairns we came upon this wonderful place. Loved the flavors and then went for a swim in the esplanade!

Dropped in for gelato and coffee. In scenic location quiet and with friendly service. Strawberry gelato yum as was the more subtle macadamia. Have returned 4 times. Best is probably the citrus flavors. Very pleasant location looking north over the Esplanade and water.

Do yourself a flavour, try Mooz's gelatos! We tried the Roasted Macadamia, Baci, Macadamia and White Chocolate and Guava. All perfectly creamy! We also got to sample flavors. It was $7 for two huge scoops. Definitely worth a visit.More

Hi Massa, Thank you for your lovely review. Did you know we make all the gelato ourselves using local ingredients such as Misty Mountain Dairy? We think thanks what gives it that amazing taste, unlike no other!

Hi Holly, Thanks for your review - we have so many sorbet and dairy free gelato flavours to choose from, it is hard to make a decision! Try a fruit sorbet next time, we make them with real fruit pulp for the most amazing flavour.

With over 130 different flavors of gelati and sorbets made in house, there is no wondering why Mooz Gelato is famous world wide. Customers can come into Vanilla without any feelings of guilt that one would normally feel purchasing regular ice cream. Our sorbets are dairy and fat free, while our gelati have a low fat and low sugar content. Gelato is a healthier version of ice cream that originated from Italy, it is milk based rather than cream based. Don't worry though! That smooth, creamy texture definitely remains. Not only do we offer our customers a beautiful display of sorbet and gelati, we also provide food and drinks in our cafe. There is a wonderful selection of light meals and salads on the 'All Day Menu' We also make delicious juices and smoothies made from fresh produce and ingredients. Furthermore, our coffee is of a high standard and ground fresh per customer. The team at Mooz are committed to ensuring that your experience with us is enjoyable and leaves a lasting impression, Please rate according to the service, quality of product and atmosphere - we love to hear feedback!
