When we recently dined at a restaurant with some PD locals, they suggested we go to this gelati bar for our dessert course. So pleased we did. The Shakes staff are lovely and there is a HUGE range of yummy flavours to choose from.

If you visit Port Douglas you must put Shakes Gelati Bar on you to do list. The flavours are great, we tried burnt toffee & mocha chocolate. Hard to stop at one scoop. The staff are very friendly.
