Ella's Creamery: Instagram-worthy Sweet Treats in Dubai

While we were in Dubai Parks and Resorts last weekend, I made sure that we could drop by the ice cream shop I have been eyeing on my Insta feed. Does Ella's Creamery sounds familiar? If you're into fancy sugary confections and you've come across one of their IG posts, you have probably been lured into the uber charming ice cream parlor as well.

Located in Riverland's Boardwalk - a zone that commemorates Early Americas, Ella's Creamery conforms to the idea with its nostalgic 1950s American-inspired setting. Ed and I were welcomed by a cheerful staff dressed in candy-pink retro uniform. We slid into a booth, which seems to me the comfiest spot to devour sweet treats! ;)

Although Ella's Creamery has a nostalgic ambiance, it is a modern-day ice cream shop offering trendy flavors like Unicorn, Bubblegum and Cotton Candy, along with the classics. The menu evolves, as per Patricia (the GM, whom we had a pleasure of meeting during our visit), as most of their selections are homemade.

Love Unicorns? Ella's got your back.

These luscious slices are winking at me!

Ella's Creamery has a menu of sinfully good treats. ;) They serve ice cream (gelato, sorbet, and contemporary concoctions), crazy shakes, cakes, cookie sandwich, and beverages. I was particularly drawn into the Pink Cadillac - a fancy schmancy strawberry milkshake topped with strawberry cheesecake ice cream, whipped cream, marshmallows, lollipop, cotton candy, and a drizzle of strawberry sauce.

Sounds hyperglycemic, but surprising, the sweetness is just right. Past the cloud of cotton candy lies a creamy and decadent milkshake that we actually consumed without a gulp of water!

Ahhh! Strawberry Milkshake is my weakness! How much more if it looks like this!

Excuse me! Gotta savor this pretty pink drink!

Ed had a cup of cappuccino which was delightfully served with a small cone of chocolate gelato. He loooooves gelato; hence, it was huge bonus to his caffeine fix. It has silky texture and tastes close to the authentic!

Perfect match!

I culminated my cheat day with a Rock & Roll Cone! It is a new offering on the menu that spells out INSTAGRAM-WORTHY! It is a whimsical, mermaid-inspired, ice cream treat; and as they say, an edible art created with love

Too pretty to eat, I actually just wanted to stare and take tons of photos until I felt the ice cream dripping down my fingers! But good news, it tastes as good as it looks! The Rock & Roll cone is made of three ice cream flavors (Let them mix and match it for you.), surprise toppings, and cotton candy in a handmade waffle cone.

My Rock & Roll Cone ice cream flavors: Unicorn, Bubblegum, Mint! Love it! 

We had such a lovely time at Ella's Creamery! I wish they would open a branch in the city soon. I'd definitely grab more scoops of unicorn ice cream, and probably another round of crazy shake. Let's say, the Katy Perry-inspired one!
