St Louis House of Fine Ice Cream & Dessert – Norwood – VIP Media Launch

Sweet tooth’s behold!! One of Adelaide’s best dessert establishments, St. Louis House of Fine Ice cream and Dessert has opened on The Parade, Norwood.

St Louis boasts an enormous menu including waffles, crepes, churros and fondue. On a hot summer night the dessert cocktails were going down a treat. Delectable classics such as the Espresso Martini and Toblerone and twists on classics – my favourite being the Cosmofauxlitan; a mix of Raspberry Vodka, Frangelico and Lime.

The St Louis Dessert Creations push the boundaries of creativity, sweetness and decadence. A medley of sweet items presented with impeccable flair, there is a theme to suit every taste; a rich chocolaty indulgence, a cookie/caramel heaven and a strawberry based indulgence. The crowd was unanimously impressed by the Eton Mess, which in presentation was anything but. A crescent of crunchy meringue adorned with strawberries, vanilla ice cream, berry coulis, hazelnut ganache and cream for extra decadence.

St Louis does a version of the mega shake which has undoubtedly been the hottest menu item of 2016. The Louis Shakes come in three tantalising options; Salted Caramel Waffle, Wild Strawberry and Peanut Butter Brownie. Over the top, indulgent and downright delicious.

If a simple scoop of ice cream is all you desire, prepare to be met with enticing choices that include Mascarpone & Candied Orange Cannoli, Tim Tam Slam, Peanut Butter & Nutella and Lemon Curd & Blueberry. Can’t choose just one? Stack a pile of scoops up in a cup or cone.

Located in the heart of the Parade on the South-Western corner of Queen Street (opposite the Bath Hotel) this is a considerably large establishment with ample outdoor seating that wraps around the footpath on the corner block. Indoor seating features a cosy nook with comfy chairs set around a book case and a marble fireplace.

My tip is to sit near the kitchen so you can watch the array of delicacies, drinks and unimaginable sweets parade out of the kitchen. There is a limit to how much sugar and chocolate one can eat at any time but your eyes never get full!
