Gelato Messina Opens in Windsor

There are now enough Messinas in Melbourne to warrant a gelato crawl.

Messina diehards, we've got some bloody good news for you. There are now three locations to satisfy your gelato urges in Melbourne: Fitzroy, Richmond and now, Windsor. Yep, Gelato Messina is opening their third Melbourne store today.

Sitting on Chapel Street right beside vodka bar Borsch Vodka and Tears, Messina's Windsor venture is cranking out the gelato and cakes Melbourne knows, loves and Instagrams well. The new store will have a 'secret room' out the back for GMA meetings (Gelato Messina Anonymous) otherwise known as private degustations. According to the Messina team, this could be one of the prettiest yet. "Without being biased, our soon-to-be third Melbourne store on Chapel Street, Windsor, is one of our best-looking kids with fully wood panelled walls, some very snazzy red cool rooms and we’re hoping, some very handsome staff."

Messina's new Windsor gelateria is the 12th for the empire, joining Melbourne's Fitzroy and Richmond chapters, alongside Sydney's flagship Darlinghurst and subsequent Surry Hills, Bondi, Parramatta, Miranda, Rosebery and The Star casino spinoffs and Coolangatta's beachside joint. They've got their Las Vegas store of course, and they're opening another store soon in the former Rozelle tram depot in Sydney.


Gelato Messina's newest store opens at 171 Chapel Street, Windsor at 5pm on November 2.
