Royal Copenhagen has always reminded me of a simpler time of high school – summer times riding down to the beach and of days after year 12 exams eating icecream like 17 year olds do. It’s always weird to look back at all the people that have touched our lives but you end up drifting, running in different circles and being placed in new and different situations. But somehow through catch ups you hear what happened to them and also to notice that nothing much about them has changed (yay :)) Funny to see that we all are still trying to figure out what to do with our lives - man I don’t like growing up. Take me back to the times I was eating icecream!
Royal Copenhagen has an icecream outlet in Glenelg with dessert bars only found in Semaphore, Henley Beach and Brighton. Famous for their giant scoops and creamy icecream where you can put as much sprinkles, fudge and nuts to your heart’s desire. I’ve had a few hit and miss flavours – I’m not too much of a fan of the boysenberry but this peanut butter, cookies and caramel fudge is a must. Creamy, salty peanut butter icecream that was smooth and a tad floppy – seriously packed a peanut punch (one of the best in Adelaide) with bits of mushed up cookies. I only sometimes see the flavour so get it when you can!

The crepes are a meal of it’s own – I shouldn’t have eaten (and a scoop of icecream) right before dinner. Crepe was delicious with a firm texture yet still soft and slightly fluffy on the inside. Layered inside were tangy raspberries compote and super sweet white chocolate chip – I was really needing the smooth vanilla icecream to cleanse the sweetness of it all.

Really love the ice-cream and crepes here – can’t wait to come back to try more of their dessert menu. Also written on their walls were quotes we should all live by: ‘Ice-cream is happiness condensed’ and ‘Life is uncertain eat chocolate’ ;)
