A scoop of Italy in Darlinghurst, this gelato Mecca has foodists and bloggers queuing up all weekend. Go for the salted caramel and white chocolate gelato, apparently the store’s best seller. There's poached baby figs in Marsala, truly figgy and beautifully sweet, infused with real fig flavor. The salted coconut with mango swirl is heaven, packed with flavor and not too sweet, a summery tropical twist for a day in the Sydney weekend sunshine.
(Note: You can find other Messina locations in Surry Hills, Pyrmont, and Bondi Beach).
