Messina Mango Pancake Party
For two days only, Messina is serving up its special mango crepes filled with mango sorbet.
While Messina's main jam is crafting supremely scoffable gelato varieties, the brand's love of food extends far beyond the freezer — as it has proven plenty of times over the past few years. Sometimes, it likes to team up with other culinary hotshots. Sometimes, it just likes to whip out a creative dessert. Either way, your tastebuds always benefit.
And this month, you're really in luck because from 12pm on Friday, July 9 and Saturday, July 10, Messina is busting out one of its specials. If you've sampled its famous mango pancakes before — yep, those treats that starred at its yum cha sessions — you'll already be hungry. The crepes come stuffed with mango sorbet and whipped cream, and they've proven immensely popular every other time they've popped up. After getting its hands on a new pancake machine last month, the cult gelato chain even hosted a dedicated mango pancake party at its Sydney HQ. And now, it's bringing this tasty occasion to Melbourne.
The whole thing will go down at Messina's Fitzroy store, with pancakes on offer until sold out each day — so getting in early is recommended. A pair of pancakes clocks in at $12.
