Ice cream season is upon us and so is another Brisbane spot to eat it, with La Macelleria once again growing its gelato empire. Just over a year since doubling its dessert joints from one to two, the gelateria chain has added a third location in Coorparoo.

Joining La Macelleria's existing Newstead and West End joints, the new Coorparoo Square digs boasts the same creamy artisanal Italian gelato that has made the brand such a hit — think flavours such as tiramisu, salted caramel, raspberry cheesecake, mandorla al caffe (aka roasted almond and roasted coffee beans) and bacio Australiano (white chocolate with caramelised macadamia chips). And, in a first, it's also slinging customisable gelato shakes. Just pick your two favourite flavours, choose your homemade sauce, and add everything from hazelnuts to whipped cream to a shot of coffee.

If gelato in Coorparoo sounds familiar, that's because La Macelleria has taken over the centre's corner spot, which used to be home to the now-closed La Mimosa Gelateria. La Macelleria isn't done expanding yet either, with a fourth store in Bowen Hills in the works, targeting a mid-January opening date.

For now, to celebrate scooping up dessert in Brisbane's east, the chain is throwing an opening shindig in its usual fashion — that is, with $1 gelato. While the fun kicks off at noon on Saturday, October 27, you'll need to drop by from 5–7pm to grab your small-sized bargain. From 7pm, gelato espresso martinis and bellinis will also be on offer at La Macelleria's new neighbour, Beyond the Pale.

Find La Macelleria at Coorparoo Square on the corner of Old Cleveland and Cavendish Roads, Coorparoo.
