Moody Cow: The proof is in the Gelato!

Two words – GORGEOUS GELATO!

Moody Cow Gelato and Coffee Company has been on my radar for a while now.  Catchy name – check, gelato – check, coffee – check – sounds pretty cool!  BUT the proof is in the gelato, so when I was invited to pop in to try a few of their offerings, I was thrilled!  😉

So off we went, early on a Saturday morning, to visit Moody Cow for a delicious tasting a.k.a breakfast of champions!

Moody Cow is in the Food Court area of Clearwater Mall, a busy and buzzing area.  So it was fantastic to be welcomed with warm smiles, a cup of cappucino and the sight of colourful and delicious gelato!

All the gelato is freshly made on site every morning, no fake ice cream in sight.  Moody Cow likes to experiment with new flavour combinations – and that also means that there will ALWAYS be something new to try!  Just look out for their ‘flavour of the month’.

We spent some quality time with Jose dos Passos, the owner of this sweet spot – and his partner Xanthya Kriel.  It was great to hear the ‘story behind the story’ – and the passion they feel for bringing an unique, quality experience to the market is almost contagious.  The proof is in the pudding!  Or gelato for that matter!

And it’s not just gelato-in-a-cone, you will find the most delightful classic waffles, waffle tacos, waffle sticks, homemade cookies, waffle cones, and cookie sandwiches.  Even gourmet popcorn and delicious drinks!  Really spoiled for choice.

So many options! Which one to try first!

We started with this delightful Pink Cookie Sandwich – especially for Woman’s Month (so at this point I MUST apologise – had some technical and time constraints, so I am a little behind on my blog posts!  Anyway, sorted out now!).

A special Women’s Month treat – the Pink Cookie Sandwich!

Don’t you just love the candyfloss and white chocolate buttons?  And it tastes as good as it looks!  A mouthful of texture and ‘pink’ flavours.

 

And the yumminess just kept coming! Some super decadent waffle tacos and classic waffles.  Yes, that is roasted marshmallows that you see here!

Everyone is curious about what Moody Cow is all about and what is on offer – so do yourself a favour and go check it out – you can even buy some to take home!  And there are exciting plans in the future, including expanding to other areas.  This little spot seems to be popular for kids and adults alike – so Mommy don’t feel too guilty for finding an excuse to stop by every day! 😉  The dishes are beautifully presented, the staff is extremely friendly and efficient and the menu offers something for everyone – especially those with a sweet tooth.

A real gem!  Good luck guys, thank you so much for hosting us!  I’m looking forward to seeing more Moody Cows around!  The gelato kind of course!
