“Rush Munro's Ice cream Gardens, for icecream delights to die for.”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Rush Munro's ice cream parlour in Hastings has been a favorite in our family since my grandparents first started going there in there in the 1920's.

Set out in a beautiful sub-tropical garden, the ice-cream parlour itself has retained it's original art-deco era style, in line with the many protected heritage buildings around Napier and Hastings.

Beautifully presented and spotlessly clean, it is well worth going to Rush Munro's in Heretunga St West, if only to relax, admire and enjoy the ambiance of the roaring 20's.

Whenever we drive to Hastings, our family always stops at Rush Monro's for our favorite ice cream sundae's , especially Maple Walnut Sundae . Served in the traditional bowl with long spoon, this heady combination of real maple syrup, walnuts and the natural, gluten-free ice cream, using no artificial colours or preservatives, is simply delicious.

There are some 20 other natural real fruit ice cream flavours available, including our other favourites, Passionfruit, Lemon curd yogurt, Feijoa, Boysenberry and Moccachino. Given that Hawkes Bay is a the major fruit-growing region, there is always plenty of fresh and tasty fruit available locally for Rush Munro's to include in their ice cream.

So have fun checking out all the different ice cream flavours, and find out which you like best.

Enjoy !

“Scrumptious Ice Cream-anytime on any day”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Well, this just has to be tasted to be believed! Thought my friends were exaggerating when they described in graphic detail just how good this ice cream is. Maple and Walnut was superb as was the Feijoa, but I also sampled and loved the Double Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean.
Not to be missed if you're in Hawkes Bay.
