Less than 100m from Byron’s Main Beach sits Frankies Gelato, a brand new traditional Italian gelateria with blue and white terrazzo adorning the floor and bar, rustic hand-rendered walls, and silver-lidded pozzetti tubs containing the tastiest gelato we’ve ever experienced on Australian shores.
Owner and gelato maker, Franco Giordano, spent several years in Italy, travelling, tasting and learning from the best makers in the country. The result is a taste of his experiences exploring the Italian coastline with a guarantee of no added colours, preservatives, additives or any other nasties.
The menu is 40% vegan, with highlight flavours including ‘Golden Milk’ made with house made almond butter, almond milk and turmeric and the incredibly refreshing sorbet combination of ‘Strawberry, Hibiscus Tea & Mint’. Dairy-based flavours include ‘Ricotta, Figs & Honey’, ‘Earl Grey Tea’ which tastes not too dissimilar to a Bubble Cup, and a decadent ‘Banoffee’ with caramelised toffee bananas and a butter biscuit crumble.
It’s all natural, and all downright delicious.
