Augustus Gelatery, 175 Somerville Road, Yarraville. Phone: 9315 314
The first things Consider The Sauce looks for when trying a new gelati/ice-cream joint are unusual or intriguing flavours.
We find one at the Yarraville shop of the rapidly expanding Augustus chain – dark chocolate gelati.
So dark it is, it looks like tar!
We both find it to be very, very good – and very chocolate-y.
The pistachio that makes up the rest of my twin-scoop cup is just average.
Bennie finds the same with his strawberry cheesecake.
Other than the dark choc gelati, we find most of the other Augustus flavours to be of no particular interest to us and …
… there appears to be an accent on pastel adventures!
Price per scoop?
Here it is $5 for a single; we reckon our double scoop deals for $6.80 are well priced.
Not that we can see – and the staff members are dealing with an ongoing kiddy/holiday rush when we’re in the house.
Sometimes we find ice-cream/gelati places don’t advertise the fact they serve smaller serves.
And sometimes that’s all we feel like!
Yarraville Augustus is apparently a hit and is sure to remain so through the forthcoming summer.
