Di Meo’s gelato is made from a traditional family recipe that’s been passed down and perfected through the generations. This creamy Italian ice cream is produced using milk from local dairy farms and has earned acclaim at the ICA National Ice Cream Competition. Flavour highlights include the ‘whitella’ chocolate and hazelnut ice cream, award-winning passionfruit sorbet or vegan stracciatella. The parlour is perfectly located just a stone’s throw from Whitley Bay’s sandy beach, so you can refresh and refuel here after a day building sandcastles. Look out for the little blue vintage car that regularly brings a pop-up Di Meo’s ice cream bar to locations around Newcastle and the coast.
