This place does really good frozen yogurts that are not to sweet and full of fruit! Waffle cones too if thats your thing. Location and decor is a bit boring in the store but great for walking down towards the water and enjoying it there when the sun is out.
One of the best ice cream place I've tried in Auckland. I recommended this place 100%.
Here is a picture of my ice cream.

Amazing, amazing ice cream. There is such a choice in flavors and they are so amazing in a waffle cone. I highly recommend if you love ice cream to call into them and give them a try. The coffee flavored one is the best in my opinion but my wife likes the caramel.
Amazing Ice Cream experience. Not just a shop. Staff were friendly and very welcoming. Staff established our names then gave us tastings of various flavours. Order was ready quickly and the store had nice decor to look at while waiting and eating. Ice cream flavours were incredible and unique.
Just off Fort St en route to Britomart, I discovered the most exciting little boutique I’ve cram dessert cafe, Giapo! This very stylish and highly professional cafe impressed from entry where you’re required to wait to be shown, taste test and experience this truly bespoke dessert adventure.
Staff are so warming, hospitable and take you through a menu orientation for first time visitors which include sampling the ice cream flavours as well as highlighting what their dessert creations look like and how the menu works. Since the ice cream flavours are complex, there are various ways you can be served the ice cream from a simple paper cup to an architectural waffle cone with exquisite toppings!
I thoroughly enjoyed my salted caramel maple walnut ice cream inside Maori bread topped with soft meringue and toffee macadamia pieces. Truly exceptional and decadent!
The best ice cream shop in Auckland for me. I love their designs. The have free taste for all the flavours so you can decide which ever ice cream you want to order. It's a very popular shop so there is always a long queue
Great Ice Cream! Definitely worth the wait, super pricey but you have to try it at least once- didn’t manage to finish it all so they definitly don’t skimp out in the quantity and the flavours are so unique
Can't rate this amazing ice cream and gelato cafe any higher than 5 stars! It's an amazing place to go for dessert, with some of the tastiest and most inventive ice creams, gelato flavours, and other desserts in Auckland. Made with passion, quality, and fresh ingredients - every day. Well worth a visit. Very different ice creams here to your typical dairy or hotel restaurant. These ice creams are artisan, crafted, made with pure love - and highly recommended.
Note that prices reflect the quality - you can pay $18 for an ice cream here... but seriously, in my opinion these are the best in Auckland.
I found my experience at Giapo a bit over complicated. I took my small kids but it was difficult to get something more simple. I can really appreciate the art of it all but personally it was all a bit much for us.
I love this place. A bit on the pricier side for gelato, but they are so creative with their ice creams it's worth the price. They also taste really good and the staff are extremely friendly. Wish they had stayed on queen st. Would definitely recommend a try.Got the Samoan caramel coconut ice cream with cookie crumbs all over it and it was amazing, tasted even better than normal dairy ice cream.
Ambience is nice but always crowded though due to their popularity. Service is excellent, we were served by a lady who was very friendly and energetic, all pleasant. She let us sample so many despite the line building up but she was onto it, she served customers while we tasted.
Not cheap, but a tonne of different flavours to chose from - more than your standard ice cream and gelato place. Ask for a taste tester with new flavours. Theres nothing worse than paying full price for a gelato and finding out that you wasted your money because you dont like it.
My favourite ice cream and gelato shop in Auckland. Awesome range and flavours, so many options. Not cheap - but you do get what you pay for, and you'll be hard pushed to find a better ice cream experience anywhere in Auckland. Ice creams are made fresh on site daily, and there are always new flavours to try. And very helpful staff.
What an experience. Giapo is like no other ice cream parlour I have ever been to. The staff are hands on in explaining the menu and helping you make your choice. Regular samples are given for you to try and your ice cream is made to order by a chef. Told them it was my birthday and it came out with a candle. Fantastic service and incredible ice cream to match!
