389 Crown Street, Surry Hills NSW 2010
One stop gelato shop
There's plenty of places in Sydney for gelato and Gelato Messina has established itself as one of the most popular places to get your gelato fix. Gelato lovers can get their classic flavours or something a bit more creative and challenging to the taste buds with their weekly chalkboard specials. With names like Oreogasm how can you go wrong. Thankfully the Peanut gelato with oreo custard & crushed oreo biscuit was a decadent treat and thoroughly enjoyed adding a few centimetres to my thighs at the same time. There's several locations but due to popularity expect some crazy long queues when the gelato moon is rising in the house of yumminess. For the Surry Hills shop there's only a tiny bit of cramped seating inside so head across the road and enjoy in the dog-friendly park.
PROS: Yummy crazy and classic flavours, Multiple locations, Admire the mountains of gelato in the window display
CONS: The queues can get extremely long, Minimal seating inside so go across the road to the park
MUST TRY: Anything that tickles your fancy
VERDICT: A very popular place for gelato in town and they won Favourite Gelato in the Sydney Food Bloggers Choice Award 2013
