The Junction Ice Creamery, 6056

The Junction is a childhood favourite of mine. And I'm delighted to report the old-fashioned ice creamery hasn't changed a bit, nor has it dropped it's standards in the fourteen years since i've been there!

The shop is clean and simple with a subtle retro California diner character. I love the mirrored vintage Coca-Cola advertisements that dress the walls, the traditional milkshake glasses, and the silver goblets they serve sundaes in.


I was warmed with a rush of saccharine nostalgia, just eyeing the ice cream freezer. The same classic, award-winning flavors have stood the test of time also.

A classic favourite is the Honeycomb Crunch; milky ice cream with giant squares of honeycomb.   The Mint Choc-Chip is one of the best of it's kind and I remember loving their Bubblegum as a kid too. Sadly they didn't have Smartie Surprise in the cabinet when I went - I hope this was only a temporary removal!

Almost as good as the ice cream itself, you must try their homemade chocolate sauce. They ladle the quality hot liquid onto your ice cream and it sets like ice magic- only far better! 

Premium ice magic chocolate sauce!

Cookie & Cream, Coconut

A old-school ice creamery would not be real without the classic sundae and and goold 'ol Banana Split! The Junction do them so right - topped with whip cream, syrup, crushed Hazelnuts and wafer triangles.

love the retro logo

What's more awesome is that they sell all their award winning flavours (there are many!) in take-home tubs, in a variety of sizes. Joy!
