Doughnuts might be Brisbane's current sweet treat craze, but before the city's residents fell in love with circular orbs of pastry, they couldn't get enough of cold, creamy confectionary. Who are we kidding — that's still true. And if all of the other ice cream and gelato shops around town haven't convinced you, Sonder Dessert will.
Making its home on Farne Street in Sunnybank Hills, Sonder serves up the kind of dishes that you'll happily venture south of the CBD to devour — and at any time of the year, too. The eatery's minimalist, booth-lined interiors allow their mouth-watering morsels of frosty goodness to garner all the attention they deserve; however with flavours like peanut butter crunch, toasted marshmallow, sticky rice, black sesame, lamington and strawberry jam, their ice cream was always going to do that anyway. Don't worry if you can't choose your favourite; that's why 4, 6 and 8-variety mini-cone flights were invented.
An array of cakes are also on offer, so leave soon room to feast your eyes — and then your stomach — on something from the in-store display case. And, in good news for those that liked their chilled scoops served with a hot beverage, the latter might just prove Sonder's second claim to fame. Matcha and hojicha are the drinks of choice here, whether you like them hot or iced, or as a float, affogato, frappe, parfait or creme brûlée.
