It’s no coincidence that all the Royal Copenhagen stores in Adelaide are located in beach side suburbs. There’s nothing like a cold refreshing ice cream on a hot Summer’s day.
The Henley Beach store is somewhat better than the Glenelg store, mainly because you can sit down and eat your dessert. The menu items are consistent with their other stores, whether it be ice cream, yoghurt, sorbets, waffles, pancakes, donuts, crepes or fondues. There’s basically something on the menu to satisfy anybody with a sweet tooth. The store itself is neat and spacious. The leather on the bench seat I was sitting at was tired and worn, and there were a few dried chocolate stains which indicated it hadn’t been cleaned properly.
Today, I ordered the White Chocolate and Mixed Berry Pancakes. The dessert was ready after a 10 minute wait and was well presented. The pancake was freshly cooked, and had a light and fluffy texture. The pancakes had a creamy buttermilk flavour and would have tasted fine by themselves, but the addition of white chocolate, maple syrup and caramel fudge ice cream just made it better. The mixed berries added more of a delicate sweetness to what already was sugar heaven.
The staff were friendly and the service was above average. The atmosphere was relaxed and the pricing was slightly higher than average, but on par if you’re comparing it with specialist dessert places.
The dessert I had was pretty good and I’d definitely come back to one of their dine in stores somewhere down the track.
