Branches are usually open Mondays to Fridays from 09:00 to 18:00 and Saturdays from 08:30 to 14:30.

8. Gatti Ice Cream Factory Shop
For many of us Gatti’s ice cream is synonymous with happy childhood memories and there’s no better time to stock up on happiness than summer time. Gatti Ice Cream has a few factory outlets throughout Cape Town but the biggest is definitely the head office factory shop in Lansdowne. Another great option is the Wynberg factory outlet, which looks more like a local corner store. Either way, if you are looking for Gatti Ice Cream at wholesale prices then it’s worth stopping in. Prices start from as little as R3 for ice lollies and they also offer bulk packs of ice lollies and tubs of ice cream.
