From humble beginnings in a Small Mediterranean family kitchen, Anita Gelato is now an internationally renowned ice cream chain.

People recognise the name and the taste instantly and now the iconic treats are in the river city with a store opening up in West End.

The store is suitably located in the former Peters Ice Cream Factory and makes over 150 different flavours, from gelato to sorbet and frozen yogurt. There are even sugar-free and vegan ice creams to choose from.

The History:

“Mama Anita, with the help of her youngest son Nir, would whip up tasty frozen treats for friends and neighbours. He’d prepare the ice cream base, while she made the addictive jams they mixed in, to give Anita’s ice cream its delicious home-made flavor. In time, Nir began to sell their ice cream from a cart at a weekly, local market and it was a huge success, which eventually led to the opening of the first store. Soon word spread, older brother Adi came aboard, and, since then, the little ice cream parlor that could has become a successful international chain with branches from Australia to New York.

Now, go get an ice cream!!!
