We are loving the last rays of sunshine as summer comes to an end and there is no better way to put off the inevitable than tucking into a sweet cool gelato. Eastside has a few delicious spots to stop and browse the flavours, here are some of our favourites.
Landmark gelato royalty Messina have two locations in Eastside - in Darlinghurst and Surry Hills. Staples include tangy lemon, dark chocolate and salted caramel but as seasons change new selections are added. We are loving The Hello Sailor pink grapefruit and Aperol sorbet, a perfect way to cool off on a sticky Sydney afternoon.
2. Rivareno Gelato
Darlinghurst post dinner haunt, Rivareno is the place you go once you’ve wrapped up a boozy dinner on Crown street or looking to refresh after a morning of trawling the Surry Hills Markets and Oxford Street boutiques. They make their gelato fresh daily and you can watch the churning process as you wait. Available in indulgent tubs to take home, don’t mind if we do!
3. Andersons of Denmark - 1A Darlinghurst Rd, Potts Point
These Danish legends have been quietly churning away their high quality gelato and ice cream in Potts Point for a number of years and the tantalising smell of cones regularly wafts down Macleay St. We love their rich, chewy Danish nougat flavour, the ideal sweet treat.
