Step into the 1950s in The Dairy Bar. Hidden down a laneway off Berry's main drag, this old-school milk bar is the new offshoot of The Treat Factory, which has been doling out sweet goodness for years. Its home is an 1895 factory that was the first in New South Wales to turn cream into butter.
Grab a seat on the shady verandah overlooking Irish-green farmlands and dig in. Every dairy dish on the menu comes from local milk, sourced from farming cooperative South Coast Dairy. That includes the gelato, which is made daily. Try tried-and-trusted classics, like vanilla, Belgian chocolate and pistachio — or go for something more adventurous, like lemon cheesecake.
There's also a bunch of OTT sundaes if you want to kick things up a notch. The S'more is a tower of vanilla and chocolate gelato, layered with Graham Cracker crumbs, chocolate pâté and a piping hot s'more (that's a Graham cracker sandwich, packed with chocolate and marshmallows). Meanwhile, the Apple Pie is a mountain of stewed and fresh apple, vanilla gelato, cinnamon almonds, waffle crumbs, caramel sauce and cream.
