Wally & Fletcher, Heidelberg

Wally & Fletcher had only been open for two weeks, but it clearly wasn’t the first time the two friendly servers had been asked the question: “who is Wally and who is Fletcher?”

Dominating the gelateria is a bright splashy mural extending the length of one wall – reminiscent of my schoolday experiments with paper marbling. There are seats inside, as well as in front – the shopfront is set back from the footpath, so the outside tables are well clear of the road. Much better than being on the footpath.

All the gelati is made on-site, with around 20 flavours available – dairy and non-dairy. The menu also includes other sweet treats such as crepes, Nutella donuts and shakes.

It’s early days at Wally & Fletcher and they are still testing out the various gelato flavours. According to our friendly server (who denied being either Wally or Fletcher), Nutella is the most popular.

Before making our final decision, we sampled several – mango (gorgeous), apple pie (very apple-y, with chunks of sugar crusted pastry), NY cheesecake (beautiful and creamy) and lychee (clearly made with real fruit). It was going to be a tough choice.

Benny asked for a small serve, with tropical sorbet and pistachio gelato in a cone. The tropical was a lovely blend of several fruits – pineapple, passionfruit, banana and citrus. Benny described it as very refreshing – excellent for a hot day. The pistachio was good.

I picked vegan chocolate sorbet with hazelnut gelato, also in a cone. The sorbet was a rich dark chocolate (perfect choice for a dark chocolate tragic) but it had a touch of iciness. Hazelnut was a great pairing for the chocolate.

We thoroughly enjoyed the cheery ambience at Wally & Fletcher – a comfortable place to sit and enjoy our gelato, and our friendly servers were super helpful.

A great achievement for a newly opened gelateria!
