Gelato Messina Has Opened a New Malvern Store — and It's Teamed Up with Tarts Anon to Celebrate
To celebrate the opening of its fifth Melbourne store, the Gelato Messina crew has created a gelato flavour in collaboration with Tarts Anon that's only sold at the new Malvern digs.
November 09, 2023
Cult favourite Gelato Messina just opened its fifth digs in Melbourne, this time taking over a shopfront on Malvern's Glenferrie Road.
It's serving up all the favourites, plus a regular lineup of seasonal scoops within the new store — decked out with marble-like finishes and floor-to-ceiling wood panelling. Like all its other spots, 40 flavours are available throughout the year, each made in-house using milk sourced from its very own dairy farm in Victoria.
But the team has taken it one step further with this Melbourne launch. To celebrate the occasion, Messina has teamed up with the famed Tarts Anon to create a new flavour of gelato that's only available in the Malvern store.
For this one, Tarts Anon has supplied a heap of its coconut pandan tarts that the Gelato Messina team chops up and chucks into its own coconut and pandan gelato. It's a crunchy and creamy swirl of pandan and coconut goodness.
Specialty cakes, bottles of Jersey milk, cookbooks and a whole host of merch are also displayed up the front, beneath a screen showing the team creating some of the best gelato in Melbourne. This new opening is perfectly timed as we slide into summer.
Find Gelato Messina Malvern at 225 Glenferrie Road, Melbourne, open 12pm–late daily. Head to the venue's website for more details.
