Gelato Messina Darling Square
Pick from 40-plus flavours (or just stick to that salted coconut and mango that you know you love).
Gelato Messina has managed to achieve something that not many chains are able to do: even with its unfathomable success, which has launched it into the consciousness of the masses of tourists, each of its 12 Sydney locations is still considered a well-loved local gem. After enjoying lunch or dinner at one of the many Darling Square eateries (including Hello Auntie, Belles Hot Chicken and XOPP), wander over to the Messina storefront to get a scoop (or three) of your favourite flavour. The 40-plus lineup of classic flavours, like salted coconut and mango, boysenberry, and dulce de leche are on offer. And, of course, there are Messina's legendary weekly specials. Keep you fingers crossed for the Jon Snow (white chocolate gelato with dark chocolate mud cake and almond praline), the Fairy Bread (toast and butter gelato with 100s & 1000s) and the Robert Brownie Jnr (milk chocolate gelato, chocolate brownie and chocolate fudge sauce).
