We have been visiting Gelato Mio at Coolum Beach since it first opened back in 2003. The gelato is made fresh on site every day and there is always a great range of interesting and delicious flavours. The prices are a little on the expensive side so our visits are more like an occasional special treat rather than weekly or... More

Save your dollars and head to Coles to buy a top quality 1-2L ice cream. Its the beach so you get what you pay for. Wide selections of flavours, but at $25 for a family of 5 its getting on the pricey end of the scale.

This is a great little shop that makes its own gelato fresh daily and flavours change although old favourites are always served. Love their coconut and hazelnut flavours. It melts quickly so in this summer heat go for a cup. 2 scoops for $5.50 is excellent value. Sorbets are also available if you prefer non dairy. Skip dessert at the... More

With current hot temperatures, it's definitely the season for a gelato , also a good cleanser after dinner at one of the nearby restaurants, a good range of flavours although i do prefer the mango.

Love an ice cream as a palate cleanser after dinner. And this was good ice cream. Reasonably priced compared to other established, similar franchises. We loved the take home packs as well.

Just a couple of minutes down stairs to our apartment stay at Element. Great than you can buy tubs and put in the freezer for your stay and the kids and friends can enjoy an ice cream right outside the shop.

We invested $12 in a twin pack double scoop polystyrene carrier to take ice cream back to our hotel room for an after-dinner treat. The ice cream here is lovely, with flavours changing each day. Our favourites were salted caramel and a confection called Delicious - a very apt name!
