Our 5 favourite Ice-Cream shops in Manly

There's always a reason to enjoy an ice-cream in hand. With so many ice-cream shops available within a 600m walk in Manly, trying a delicious ice-cream should definitely be at the top of your “To Do” list.


1. Royal Copenhagen

106 The Corso, Manly NSW 2095

Located right in the heart of Manly Corso, steps from the beach.

Royal Copenhagen has to be our number 1 favourite ice-cream shop purely for their melted chocolate coated waffle cones and toppings like sprinkles, nuts and more drizzled chocolate (all included in the price).

Novotel Manly’s Ice-cream pick: Cookies & Cream with a melted chocolate waffle cone drizzled in sprinkles or nuts

2. Gelatissimo

Manly Wharf Shopping Centre, Kiosk 2, East Esplanade, Manly NSW 2095

The perfect location if you are just arriving to Manly by Ferry.

Gelatissimo is the place to go if you are wanting a more authentic tasting Italian Gelato. Apart from the traditional choice of cup or cone, you can now enjoy your ice-cream in a shake or… donut.

3. Ben and Jerrys

25-27 S Steyne, Manly NSW 2095

Located right across Manly Beach, this iconic ice cream parlour is known for its creatively named ice cream flavours. For a bit of fun, why not bring the kids to Ben and Jerry’s so they can try some “Phish Food” or “Chunky Monkey”.

Novotel Manly’s Ice-cream pick: The Tonight Dough – a blend of caramel & chocolate with choc chip cookie dough & peanut butter cookie dough

4. Yogurtland – FRO-YO (Frozen Yogurt)

96 The Corso, Manly NSW 2090

If you don’t want to feel to guilty about eating dessert but still want that sweet refreshing taste, then Yogurtland is definitely for you. The best part about Yogurtland is that it is all DIY – so you can choose how much or little of each different favour you want. Followed by the large variety of toppings from fruits to jelly lollies and brownies to chocolates, there is something for everyone.

Novotel Manly’s Ice-cream pick: a fruity mix of Mango, Strawberry Lemonade and Watermelon Sorbet.

5. Mövenpick

38/42 The Corso, Manly NSW 2095

Walking towards the Manly Wharf, you will find this iconic Swiss ice-cream chain on the corner. If you are looking for something that is a little more “gourmet”, then Mövenpick can offer you a variety of delicious flavours.
