Morningside's Wynnum Road has become Brisbane's dessert hybrid haven, thanks to the arrival of Lick! Ice Cream's second store. In late 2017, the frozen sweet treat parlour set up shop just a short stroll down from beloved Brissie bakery Flour & Chocolate, meaning that grabbing a cronut or gonut, then chasing it with a doffle (of all things), is well and truly on the menu.
If you don't know what a doffle is, then you clearly haven't been to Lick!'s original Graceville joint — or you've only had eyes for their ice cream lineup. Available in cinnamon, Nutella, banoffee, peanut butter and jelly, black forest and tropical flavours, its a combination of a doughnut and a waffle. In other words, it's the type of mashup Parks and Recreation and Twin Peaks fans would be proud of.
Unsurprisingly, doffles are quite the feature among the store's decadent selection. Their menu also includes ice cream sandwiches, their own tiramisu, milkshakes, thickshakes, ice cream spiders and more. Given the folks behind Lick! have been responsible for the Ekka's beloved strawberry sundaes for the past six years, they have more than a little experience in the dessert department.
If you'd rather just enjoy a few tasty scoops, don't worry — you'll more than catered for as well. Twenty-four different ice cream and sorbet flavours will be on offer, spanning existing hits and limited-edition newcomers. Think choc-chip cookie dough caramel, salted nut brown butter with roasted almond, bubblegum and marshmallow, Redskin, and spiced apple cider, just to name a few.
