Lick! Ice-Cream Paddington
Lick! Ice-Cream has been one of Brisbane’s most beloved dessert dispensaries since before it ever opened its first ice-creamery in 2015. The brand now boasts three locations across town, including the newest arrival at Paddington Central. The colourful Paddington shop is similar to its sibling locations in Graceville and Morningside – a gleaming freezer houses a bounty of ice-cream flavours, alongside a separate fridge where take-home tubs tempt those who only popped in for “just a scoop”. Lick’s famed core range is available, with more than 30 mainstays and two rotating specials on deck at any one time. Tantalising flavours range from staples such as pistachio, peppermint choc chip and couverture dark chocolate to salted caramel, cookies and cream, and hokey pokey, as well as an assortment of sorbets and vegan-friendly options. In addition to the cones and cups, Lick’s Paddington store also sells thick shakes, sundaes and the beloved doffles (that’s a doughnut and waffle hybrid).
