3 Favourites Customers That Love Sweets Always Order


If you’re someone that heads out for a meal and finds yourself scoping out the dessert menu before first drinks have even hit the table – we feel you. We’ve got sweet tooths too, and at The Gateway, we like to celebrate it. So, in this post, we’ve put together three of the most popular picks on our bistro menu, especially for those that like to stray away from the savoury choices.

Jam donuts

Made with our secret deep-fried process, topped with mouth-watering cinnamon and served with our popular honeycomb and vanilla cream – this is one you can’t miss out on. A proud Aussie favourite, jam donuts are one of those menu delights that never disappoint. Plus, they’re a whole lot of sweetness in one, little bundle. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Sticky date pudding

It’s everything you already love about this classic, but with our special brandy sauce and ice cream.

If you’re yet to experience what this treat has to offer, expect an irresistibly rich taste that’s long been enjoyed across the globe. While you’re likely to see it present at the Christmas family dinner, it’s also a year-round favourite here at The Gateway. If your sweet tooth demands something powerfully tasteful, then this is one you can’t leave the table without trying out.

Chocolate banana fudge

This bundle of joy combines our beloved banana ice cream, pistachio crumb and housemade chocolate fudge, all in one bowl. With a blend of textures and tastes, this menu favourite is also ideal for all ages.

Ready to put these tastes to the test?
