St Louis House of Fine Ice Cream & Dessert - Quick Chop!

Pretty sure the dessert craze will not wane, looking at the continual stream of dessert bars being opened around Adelaide. Very new to the scene is St Louis House of Fine Ice Cream and Desserts trading down the Victoria Square end of Gouger St at just one week old. On Saturday night this place was bustling with people attracted to the crowds like moths to light – or should I say ants to sugar?

Fancy eh?

As their name suggest, St Louis offers specialty ice cream made locally and a range of desserts including churros, crepes and tasting platters. Tonight ice cream was on the menu given their name sake (notice ice cream comes before desserts?).

To maximise flavour tasting opportunities, my boyfriend and I opted for the 3 scoop waffle basket with honey and fig, salted caramel and cafe.

Each of the ice creams had a nice texture and did not have any ice-iness to them. Honey and fig flavour was subtle and not too sweet. However, I wish the girl serving my ice cream gave me more of the purple fig syrup - you can't even see that it exists from the photos. Salted caramel didn't have a noticeable amount of saltiness but the caramel threaded through the ice cream was gooey and delicious. Cafe was just plain Jane coffee ice cream. Waffle cone was dipped in chocolate, which was a nice touch. But it was hard and very cumbersome to eat from the foam cup provided. Would've been better if we had the three scoops in the foam cup and shards of broken waffle cone mixed in.

The ice cream at St Louis is nice but fails to blow the brain, despite having some interesting flavour combinations. Praise should be given for the lovely interior making it perfect place to hang out and indulge.

  1. I was talking to one of the girls at my work about this place and she mentioned that St Louis gets their ice creams from Royal Cophenhagen and that they are run by the same company. Source, her friend works for Copenhagen.

  2. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Although we appreciate your insight, we do not feel that this impacts the way we have judged the products on offer at this establishment. The ice cream is still delicious and having been back an additional two times I can say their food Is just as pleasing. look out for additional pictures and reviews soon!
