This is another one of those epic handmade havens where you can see the fruits of human labour, and taste the results, which are always fantastic. Located in Moullie Point, these guys know how to whip up dreamy flavours and heavenly ice cream concoctions!
Amongst the milkshakes on the menu you will find decadent 65% chocolate, sea salt caramel, peanut butter, sweet cream, lemon curd, toasted coconut, chocolate orange and the super-decadent brûléed marshmallow milkshake.
The flavours change seasonally (and in some cases daily) so look out for those special blends like Ginger & Roast Apple, Banana & Caramelized Walnut or the Mulberry Buttermilk Swirl.
These guys have a knack for the sweet side of the flavour spectrum, a must-visit!
We’ve mentioned these guys before in the same breath as the La Boheme/La Bruixa family of restaurants. Also located in Sea Point, in the same block as its brother/sister restaurants.
Though their slow braised lamb shank and the trio of mushrooms pizza are simply outstanding, we are here for the shakes (making a mental note to come back for a more substantial meal).
There are three, toasted marshmallow with vanilla ice cream and toasted marshmallows, cookies and cream with vanilla ice cream and Oreo cookies and banana and booze with vanilla ice cream, banana and Baileys.
I’d keep the banana one for later in the afternoon, but the Toasted Marshmallow was superb and refreshing!
For a shake that’s practically a meal, look no further. My Sugar does the most amazing donuts, milkshakes and decadent chocolate shots (Yes! That’s a thing!).
They are based in Sea Point and are an artisan chocolatier and confectioner. Handcrafted chocolate at its finest!
We’re here for the shakes though and the selection is so good it makes it impossible to choose. Strawberry, Super Chocolate, Cookie Butter, Coffee, Caramelized Coconut and Butterscotch Popcorn. Each of these shakes are huge, beautiful to behold and delicious to the last bite.
You will have to experience one yourself to believe how layered and sublime milkshakes can be.
Last week we looked at healthier options, now this week we will do an about-turn and check out the best milkshake joints in Cape Town. They are all in walking distance / short Uber of each other, so you may as well make a tasting day out of it :-)
