Need a traditional Italian gelato fix but can’t make it all the way to Italy? Luckily Moro Gelato has you covered with their range of upmarket gelatos made the same way they do in Italy.

Available in the CBD for when you need that break from the office and at Oranjezicht City Farm on Saturdays.

Go for their traditional flavours such as tiramisu and pistachio and stay for their fun and experimental flavours such as salty caramel popcorn and toast and jam.
