Gourmet milkshakes from Whisk
Below are just some of the cafes in Perth that offer freakshakes and crazy desserts as recommended by members. These are definitely ‘special occasion’’ desserts, or perhaps on a less festive day simply ‘why not, I deserve it.’

Whisk, Subiaco Whisk Creamery is relatively new to Perth and offers one thing only: mind-boggling desserts of all varieties. From the donut-laden milkshakes to gourmet milkshakes with syringes full of caramel and chocolate, nothing here is for the weak-hearted. You can purchase one of their designer creations or make your own from a huge range of items including icecream cones made from cronuts to strawberry and rose mousse.
Address: 151 Rokeby Road, Subiaco

Sapore, Belmont As well as all-day breakfast and lunches, Sapore has a range of gourmet shakes ($8.50) with flavours such as turkish delight, salted caramel, popcorn and bubblegum. More dessert than drink, they are a meal in themselves.

Café 2TwentyFour, Belmont New to the scene, Cafe 2Twentyfour have six ‘supershake’ flavours including the Kinder Surprise and strawberries and cream at $9 each plus the infamous Golden Gaytime Mega shake at $11.90. It’s a meal really.
Café Elixir, Wanneroo They may only have a few freakshake options but considering one of them is the Birthday Cake Speciality Milkshake ($8), it’s hard to overlook. Besides, they often seem to do one-off desserts and crazy milkshakes which are promoted on their Facebook page to be snaffled up and then disappear just as quickly.
Address: 3 Rocca Way, Wanneroo
Website: Café Elixir Open: Mon-Wed 7am-5pm, Thur-Fri 7am-10pm, Sat 8am-10pm, Sun 8am-5pm
