The crisp crepe cones stuffed with every savoury topping you can think of are a lot of fun at this '50s-themed diner, but they're just an excuse for dessert. Here that means a chocolate thickshake topped with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry, and a hot fudge sundae that will see you flying on a sugar high for the rest of the evening.
It'll set you back $21 for a slice of the passionfruit pavlova from Rockpool Bar and Grill, and it's worth every damn dollar. Make your way through the pillowy soft meringue, thick cream points and fresh passionfruit. It's manna from heaven.
