In the spot where Fringe Cafe used to sit is the new Cloud9 Chocolate Cage. The peculiar thing about Cloud 9 is that despite the name, Cloud 9 isn’t quite a Max Brenner Lite but a dessert/gelato bar that sells gelato, gelato sliders, milkshakes, coffees and also treats other dessert treats like waffles with gelato.

The inside of Cloud 9 is minimal and spacious with a bit of seating round the back. We popped in a couple of times and we were here once during a hot summers day and they had the AC pumping so it was actually a good place to hide away from the heat.

Inside there’s a gelato display to one side and also brownies/biscuits that they use to put together their gelato sandwiches. You can pick two different biscuits and any of the gelato flavours to make your gelato slider

Cloud 9’s chocolate part of its names comes from the endlessly flowing chocolate fountain – where you can net a shot of chocolate for a dollar.

A range of treats – there’s a waffle with gelato option, a flourless chocolate cake which was surprisingly light and airy, a brioche bun with gelato inside, brownie gelato slider, and milkshakes.

We popped in Cloud 9 with 3 boys, 8,6 and 4 and as expected, everything today was a hit. Air con, sweet treats and chocolate shots – check out cloud9 located a 199 King Street.
