Just Gelato'n'Shakes is a decadent dessert bar occupying a cute undercover courtyard in Riverhills shopping centre.
The courtyard provides fitting surroundings to enjoy the hundred flavours of gelato they have on offer, sourced from South East Queensland's very own Maleny Food Co.
Specialties at Just Gelato n' Shakes are the gelato brownies, ice cream sundaes, banana splits and gelato cookie sandwiches. Aside from the gelato specials, the dessert menu also features rocky road waffles (Hersheys chocolate and strawberry sauce, crushed peanuts, jellies and marshmallows), cronuts and gelato (nutella or honeycomb), meringue nests, or chocolate nachos.
The shakes and smoothies also taste divine - chocolate peanut butter, straw-nana, mangolicious, or blueberry muffin. Anyone feeling extra hungry is welcome to attempt the Just Gelato n' Shakes "Fish Bowl Challenge" - to consume a giant bowl of ice cream (2.8 litres) in under 30 minutes. Good luck.
Need to know - All the gelato and shakes are available dine in or take away and part of the range are dairy and gluten free.
Nice to know - Live music is performed at Just Gelato n' Shakes on Friday and Saturday nights.
