Located in Serene Center, Island Creamery is a very cosy and a great place to chill out with friends. One of the thing that struck me was how cheerful and inviting the area was, as seen from the walls decorated with personal photos. You could request to print a photo here using your camera’s memory card.
I looked at the pictures on the wall and by sheer coincidence, I spot out a picture of the Vesporeans during one of their outings last year!
As the place is popular gathering place, it is quite vibrant and can be quite noisy at times, thus it isn’t a recommended place for anyone to do their studies!
The folks running Island Creamery was very friendly, ready with a smile and quick to assist you. No surly faces here! There was this pretty waitresses who was more than willing to help Paced and me while we requested for a printing paper even though it was a very busy day for the staff.
The gentleman who were serving us ice cream was even kind and patient enough to wait while we pondered on which ice cream to get for our table.
The ice cream
A single scoop is $2.50, double scoop is $4.00 and a 500ml tub is $8.00. We shared among us four tubs of different types of ice cream – namely Nutella, Reverso, Burnt Caramel and the very popular Teh Tarik. I digged in and had my taste.
It was a divided camp with Paced, Dhope, Malique, Ethan, Claudia, Aaron, CC, Arzhou enjoying their ice cream while NTT, Attilio and I think that although it was nice, but it didn’t meet our expectations. As we’ve tasted good Italian gelato before, our expectations were higher. Thus we found the ice cream a little overrated, judging from the reviews from many blogs. I would have liked it better if their ice cream were more flavourful.
However, I do have to give credit for the rather tasty teh-tarik ice cream – my favourite out of the four. They actually managed to make it taste just like the actual teh tarik tea!

In a nutshell
Island creamery is a great place to chill out with friends to have nice ice cream at affordable prices with friendly and helpful staff to assist you. A highly recommended place to visit.
