About 20 months ago, Millers Margaret River ice cream opened it’s doors. It is owned by the Millers, funnily enough, who also own a 1000 acre dairy farm. It’s claim to fame is that within three hours of the cows being milked, the cream from the milk is made into ice cream.
There are 16 flavours to choose from, including two dairy-free options.
Two scoops cost $6. I chose cone with Yahava coffee and mascarpone and wild fig. The ice cream was lovely, really creamy. The Yahava coffee was my favourite – not overly sweet, a lovely smooth coffee flavour, and creamy. The mascarpone and wild fig was also nice, but for my taste buds, quite rich.
Zorba had chocolate and rum and raisin. He didn’t complain but to him, nothing will beat the gelato he had in Rome at Grom.
The serving was also massive – even Zorba whose stomach is often a bottomless pit commented that it was as bit too much. I gave this feedback to the lovely lady behind the counter. When we compared it to the serving size in Italy, it would be almost double the size. Being generous is a lovely trait, but it might be better to give customers a little less and have them leaving with a wonderful food experience rather than have them leaving feeling slightly sick.
The grounds are nice with grassy areas, trees, outdoor picnic tables, and a great looking kids play area with a cow sculpture that kids can actually milk.
Millers ice cream is a worthy place to stop when enjoying a visit to the Margaret River region.
