fathers day


Dads. Just…how do you make dad feel special? He’ll tell you he doesn’t really want anything cos he’s already got all the things he wants. Either that, or that he wants a yacht so…well, maybe next year dad? To be honest every year when I was little I used to get my dad socks. He always appreciated it, I think. I mean, every now and then you have to top up your sock supply somehow right? But surely we can do better. I mean – dads, you know!

Anyway, whatever dad tells you he wants (or doesn’t want) – a special treat is always in the realm of possibility. We’ve had a think and decided dad would love some honeycomb straciatella (choc chip) gelato, ‘or’ a box of cannoli, ‘or’ a 6 pack of Italian donuts, ‘or’ a focaccia genovese filled with salsa verde, ricotta and mortadella. I used the word ‘or’ but what I really mean is ‘and’. That’s just how it is on father’s day!

All that would make an INCREDIBLE feast while you are out sailing on your imaginary yacht. Are we even allowed on yachts? That’s gotta count as exercise! In any case, we love you dads – happy father’s day to you all! X

Elwood is open Saturday and Sunday 10am until 9pm. 

Biancolatte Bakes open from 10am to 1pm.

Anyone else finding the year is flying by? We certainly can’t believe it has only been 4 months since the opening of Biancolatte Northcote, our second shop and Northcote’s newest little treasure! What a wonderful welcome we have had with so many of you leaving 5 star reviews and saying it’s the best gelato and cannoli you’ve ever had! We are completely blown away. Northcote, you certainly love your Italian desserts and we love you for that.  There are so


Naturally gelato is the answer for your dessert needs year round and THIS Easter we have created our very own range of delectable Easter treats! Choose from the Toffee Vanilla Gelato Ball with a flowing chocolate centre, coated in Milk Choc crisp (think Golden Gaytime here), the Peanut Butter Gelato Ball with choc centre and choc chips (think Reece’s Pieces), and the Choc Coconut Tartufino (chocolate gelato, coated in dark chocolate and coconut). The guy you have to thank for


What a joy to be back in 2022 doing what we LOVE! With our fleet of gelato carts forced into hibernation for a couple of years it has been such a pleasure to dust them off, shine them up, and roll them out at so many weddings, parties and events over the last couple of months! While we aren’t quite back to pre-pandemic madness we are definitely out in full force serving our authentic Italian gelato to hundreds of events


To our wonderful customers – what a ride our little weekend bake shop has been! We (Andy and Fiona) have enjoyed every minute – sharing our passion for Italian food and meeting so many of you in our community who we don’t normally get to see! Sadly, we have had to put the bake shop aside for the moment to commit to other projects. We are always innovating and pushing forward at Biancolatte so that you can keep enjoying our


Over the next few months you’ll see some changes happening on our website – one of them is already in place and that’s our NEW online ordering system! But first, a little history about the site. The original biancolatte website – much of which is still live – was designed by husband and wife team Andrea and Camille Di Fiore in 2012. How cute is it that the whole site is designed like a gelato cart, and carries the original



IT STARTED as a collaboration between two Italian boys – Andy from Milan and a mate from Sicily. The research went deep – trying cannoli all around Sicily, training from the best pastry chefs in small towns that tourists would never find. The result is a unique and sublime pastry, filled with a silky smooth ricotta that is not ultra-traditional, but preferred everywhere we’ve looked. That dough with lashings of sweet marsala, a touch of cinnamon and layered to give
