Scoop of Art @ Marine Parade Community Club


The passion and love for art and gelato has brought together 2 ladies Varsha Mulani and Anisa Tyebally to open Scoop of Art at Marine Parade Community Club back in July 2010. Its philosophy is to create an unique experience that combines Gelato enjoyment with Art appreciation.


Creative art pieces decorated the cafe giving it a funky and lively interior. Besides food and beverages, the cafe has a wide range of Art activities for everyone. With a free flow of paints and brushes, one can spend the day immersed in a relaxing art jamming such as tiles/canvas painting, t-shirt painting, umbrella painting, paint an animal coin bank or mug and many etc.


Scoop of Art has also hosted many events ranging from corporate team building to birthday parties and even Gelato workshops.


Even the famous local artist Wanton Doodle has drawn on the cupboard at Scoop of Art.


So far Scoop of Art has created over 60 Gelato flavours and everyday 18 different delectable gelato flavours will be available. The flavours are constantly rotated so that every visit comes with a different gelato experience.

Scoop of Six 4.5/5 

If you are with a group of friends or family, the Scoop of Six ($10.50) will be great for sharing. You can choose any 6 flavours of your choices. The homemade gelato uses the freshest ingredients with no preservatives or food colouring. For my visit, I tired the White Chocolate with Raspberry, Raspberry, Ferraro Nutella, Alfonso Mango, Lemon Meringue Pie and Mars Bar & Sea Salt. I could not decide which is my favourite as I liked all of them. They all come with distinct strong flavours, smooth and creamy.

Their Premium Gelato is priced at $3.80 (small), $4.80 (medium) and $5.80 (large). Regular gelato is priced at $3.20 (small), $4.20 (medium) and $5.20 (large).

Shepherd's Pie 4.5/5

Scoop of Art is not just a gelato parlour. You can also grab a proper lunch or dinner with mains under $10. Currently the kitchen is run by an ex Botak Jones chef that creates the delicious menu. They also have student meal set that comes with a drink at $5.50 to $.6.50.

The Shepherd's Pie ($4.50) comes with a choice of either chicken or beef fillings. I really love the cheesy version by the cafe. The smooth mash potatoes with the flavourful beef stew was a winner for me. For the size of the shepherd's pie, it is definitely value for money too.

Garlic Prawn Pasta 4.5/5

The Garlic Prawn Pasta ($8.00) is another winner for me! If you love your food hot and spicy this definitely brings a punch. The strong flavours and fresh crunchy prawns will definitely send your palate dancing.

Tortilla Melts with Thai Chilli Dip 4.5/5

After trying 2 dishes, I am already won over by the menu. The Torilla Melts with Thai Chilli Dip (R $5.50, L $8) comes with a choice of chicken or beef fillings. The Thai Chilli Dip made by the chef surprisingly was a delightful combination to the already delicious Tortilla Melts. It definitely lifted the dish to a new level.

Cheese Croque Sandwich 4/5

For a hearty meal and if you are a cheese lover, you can try the Cheese Croque Sandwich ($8) that has ham, chicken pieces and mango. I like how the chef uses simple ingredients and combined them for a delectable dish.
