Sorbet 🍧 Chanced upon this cafe while we were supposed to go hiking 😅🤣 Love how friendly the person serving us and she even entertained all our requests. I chose the mango sorbet & mint sorbet... should have ordered the gelato instead LOLL anyway the mint tasted like toothpaste #notevenkidding we all felt this way. But the mango is refreshing! Overall a pretty chill cafe (hidden gem @ clementi). Would definitely come back and try out other flavours cause you can have 2 different flavours at $5 & 3 different flavours at $8! 😱 #myheartapprove for great deals and delicious food.

Waaa this was super good. The quality and texture of the gelato was amazing, easily one of the better gelatos I’ve had in SG - it’s up there with venchi & dopa dopa. It’s very smooth and creamy and full-bodied, texture is on point. I actually prefer their pistachio compared to venchi’s, as the texture is similar but venchi’s is much sweeter. The tiramisu was sufficiently boozy, it’s good too! There’s some baileys soaked ladyfingers folded into the tiramisu gelato.

Definitely coming back to try their other flavours! Not sure why this is not more well-known, but I’m not complaining since I get to enjoy the gelato in a nice tranquil environment. Also, the pricing is such that you pay depending size of the cup ($5 / $8) with top-ups for premium / alcoholic flavours. In each cup you can choose different flavours (i.e. $5 cup choose 1-2 flavours, $8 cup choose 2-3 flavours) which is good bc we can try a greater variety of flavours without getting too full from toooo much ice cream!

Another new kid of the block, Dawn's Gelateria & Cafe is located right in a quiet corner serving up homemade gelato made in-house daily!

Had a go at their Passionfruit Sorbet (freshly made today!) & the 59% Valrhona Dark Chocolate.

Love their take on the fruity sorbets as I manage to sneak a taste of the Yuzu Lemon Sorbet as well. The sour tang cuts through & makes it a great end-meal perk me up!

As for the dark chocolate, it's pretty good as a chocolate-based ice cream. I would prefer it to be darker & slightly more bitter, but still a good dark choc if you're afraid of the bitterness!

Not sure what’s with the location, but Sunset Way is pretty much seeing a boom of ice-cream/gelato parlours of the late; Burnt Cones being one of the three which we had checked out not too long ago, and Dawn’s Gelataria and Cafe being the second to have opened its doors pretty recently. There is also a third; Hundred Acres Creamery, which has is opening its doors soon to the public as at the point of writing.

Amongst the three ice-cream/gelato parlours that have opened or are opening in this neighbourhood, Dawn’s Gelataria and Cafe is the only one of three that actually serves full meals ranging from Benedicts to salad and pasta. Their expertise seems pretty much to be in their gelato though; the Amarena Cherry came with a milky base that is swirled with a “sauce” made from the said fruit; a flavour that was surprisingly deep and luxurious with its aptly sour undertones that was also pretty floral — a very unique flavour that goes well with the milk base that gives it an additional richness. The Rum & Raisin hits the expectations well; sufficiently boozy with nibs of raisins to chew on — both flavours are also smooth, sticky and creamy; pretty much on-point for gelato. The waffles served here are pretty old-school; more of the eggy sort than the buttermilk waffles that are often seen at ice-cream parlours of the late — not too dense, yet light and airy; pretty easy to finish.

Having tried Burnt Cones not too long ago, Dawn’s Gelataria & Cafe seems to be an establishment that chooses to focus on more conventional Italian flavours with an emphasis on exotic fruits, chocolate and nuts; a direction that seems to target a different audience from the more experimental, hipster flavours that Burnt Cones have to offer. That being said, Dawn’s would work better as a one-stop shop for families who would prefer to have their meals and dessert at a single destination, or those who prefer more “grown-up” ice-cream flavours in general.
