One of our go-to spots for a totally over the top sugar hit is Whisk Creamery. The popular café that started out in Subiaco, has now opened another store on William Street in Northbridge. Little Chef and I had been at Nostalgia Box, a video console museum, for a morning of fun playing retro computer games. Afterwards, we popped into Whisk Creamery for a tasty treat for morning tea, no doubt it would include their speciality – fresh soft serve gelato.img_2358

Deciding what to choose is really tricky, especially with that little voice in my head telling me sternly ”think of all the calories!” . The menu also have photos of each creation and it’s very difficult not to want to try everything! There’s indulgent stuffed cronuts, deep fried gelato, banana splits and more.img_2382

Little Chef had the “Sneaky Caramel”, $12.40. The cup is brimming with salted caramel gelato, hot honey chocolate fudge sauce in a syringe, chocolate wafer shards and coffee mousse. He gave it two very enthusiastic thumbs up!img_2362

I had the “Banoffee Waffle”, $13.50. I don’t have a massive sweet tooth, so I wasn’t too sure if it would be too much, but I really enjoyed it. Super fresh double waffles are smothered in swirls of coffee mousse, a hot caramel fudge sauce in a syringe, fresh banana slices and topped with chocolate fairly floss. The mousse was absolutely scrumptious and so light, so the whole dessert didn’t feel heavy. I would definitely eat it again.img_2369

To drink, there’s some wicked milkshakes, iced drinks, tea, coffee, smoothies and complimentary water. Whisk Creamery’s gelato creations are totally naughty – but so worth it!img_2383

And here’s a little bit on The Nostalgia Box…

Back in the day, my parents had to drag me off my Commodore 64 or Sega Master System. I loved playing Frogger, Sonic and Super Mario Brothers. So Little Chef wasn’t the only one to be super excited to be visiting The Nostalgia Box, Australia’s first interactive video game console museum!img_2283

The museum is found on Aberdeen Street in Northbridge. Half of the museum is a dedicated exhibit to gaming history where around 100 gaming consoles are on display. These date back to the 1970s through to the present day. Some of these machines look like ancient relics and I didn’t actually realise that consoles had been around for that long.img_2291

After walking through the exhibit, you can experience playing the classic games in the gaming area. The inviting space is adorned with a vibrant mural of all the gaming favourites of the 1980’s and 90’s. There are twelve consoles set up with games like Duck Hunt, Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros, Street Fighter, Sonic the Hedgehog, Crash Bandicoot and many more.img_2306

One of Little Chef’s favourites was the shooting game “Duck Hunt”. Little Chef and I had a good time trying to beat each other on the two player games like Mario Kart too! My favourite was Sonic The Hedgehog, though I couldn’t get passed the first boss level, so I am a bit out of practice. It has been about 20 years between games to be fair! Little Chef and I also enjoyed Super Mario Brothers, which I revelled in beating him at.img_2329

I was surprised to learn that the museum is very popular with adults in their 20s and 30s, but afterwards after re-living my youth via Sonic The Hedgehog, I’m not that surprised. You’re sure to discover some random old games, as well as have many blasts from the past. Nostalgia Box takes you back to your childhood, as well as giving your children a chance to experience gaming the “old school” way.img_2341

Whisk Creamery – Subiaco

My Instagram feed has been brimming with sweet things lately… gorgeous sweet treats that are as easy on the eye as no doubt they are to eat! One such decadent dessert I’ve been very excited to try is the Caramel Sandwich at Whisk Creamery, Subicao. There you’ll find freshly made to order soft-serve gelato “exactly the way Nona’s Nona used to make it”. AND there are no nasty ingredients – there’s a lot to love about Whisk Creamery!IMG_0057

For the uninitiated, cronuts are the love child of a croissant and the humble doughnut. They have the layered, buttery richness of a croissant, coupled with the sugary sweetness of a doughnut and exceedingly scrumptious!IMG_0059

Little Chef and I are NUTS about cronuts – Chef was a cronut virgin and we encouraged him to order the “Caramel Sandwich”. It’s basically silky smooth salted caramel gelato, sandwiched between a fresh cronut, with house made salted caramel sauce and topped with whipped cream and even MORE salted caramel sauce. I had a bite… my goodness, the caramel sandwich is every bit as drool worthy as it looks.IMG_0044

I have to admit – I couldn’t handle the guilt and shared a Ferrero Rocher cronut with LC. The crisp, but light cronut was filled with nutella! Naughty and nice!IMG_0047

Chef and I had coffees too, which are top notch. We’re all huge fans of Whisk Creamery now – on my next visit I’ll be sure to order something of my own!IMG_0054
