Review of Black Peak Gelato

Black Peak Gelato
Ranked #2 of 3 Dessert in Wanaka
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$4 - US$8
Description: We make outstanding homemade gelato and sorbets from a 70 year old Italian recipe that uses local produce- made with passion on the premises in vintage gelato machines. Come and see how these old machines work, you may be lucky enough to get a sample straight out machine if you time it right. In store we make over 90 different flavours with 18 to choose from daily. We cater for all dietary requirements with dairy free, gluten free, egg free, nut free flavours every day. If your in Wanaka over Winter we also make wicked hot chocolates. We hope you have a great time in Wanaka from all the Black Peak Gelato staff.

Black Peak serves the most awesome gelato we've ever tasted. The range of flavours is outstanding and John and his staff give everyone a friendly welcome. Can't wait for our next visit! The last reviewer must have been at another outlet.

I also do not understand how this shop has such a high rating. The man serving us was exceptionally rude and the gelato was average tasting and icy. Most over rated frozen treat I have ever had.

So many nice flavours, it's hard to just pick one or two. Then when the final choice has been made, cross the road and savour it whilst enjoying the view of Lake Wanaka.

I never thought I would say this but the liquorice flavour gelato is outstanding! Last week I tried the coca-cola flavour combined with pavlova. Just brilliant. The guys keep coming up with great flavours and it's always exceptional quality. Great service and good prices.
