When I first walked into the place I was confused. It offers premium and regular ice cream. When asked what is the difference? I was told that the regular is all artificial and premium is natural. WHAT? Why would you offer "artificial crap" and natural?...More

Lady Janes is Rotorua's iconic Ice Cream Parlour. Situated down by the lake front it is a relaxing activity for all ages. We have been serving the sweet tooth locals and tourists for over 30 years. With over 50 flavours to choose from there is sure to be something to please everyone! A must try is our Danish cone, a large waffle cone with 2 choices of creamy ice cream, your choice of topping, fresh whipped cream and chopped peanuts or sprinkles. It's amazing!! Open all year round from 10am till late, come and visit us we would love to see you.
