Gelato Messina Rosebery
Get a scoop at Sydney’s beloved gelateria’s headquarters in the inner south — or learn to make your own.
Back in 2015, Rosebery's was still on the cusp of being considered a foodie hub. Arguably, it was two venues that really cemented it. And the first of those was the sweet, sweet addition of the ever newsworthy, unfailingly novelty and perpetually popular Gelato Messina. The latter was Three Blue Ducks, in case you were wondering.
Sitting on Mentmore Avenue, Messina's Rosebery venture is the HQ for the ever-popular gelateria brand and it makes good use of the huge space. Of course, it pumps out the gelato and cakes Sydney knows, loves and Instagrams well. You can it all happening with your own eyes here, too, thanks to the glass walls that show the sweet masters at work.
But you can also step behind the curtain by signing up for one of the Gelato Appreciation Classes — you'll get to meet the chefs, get some industry secrets and participate in making some of the delicious stuff.
Meanwhile, Messina makes use of the car park, too, hosting food trucks and collaboration events most months.
