Gelato Messina in South Brisbane is a sibling of the famous Sydney outfit and a go-to for some of Australia's best gelato.
Located in the base of hip new The Melbourne Residences, access to Gelato Messina is via its Melbourne St main entry and back door in Fish Lane.
At this gelateria everything that goes into the gelati is made in-house from scratch, from the baking of apples pies to the grinding of pistachios and the stewing of fresh fruit.
Forty flavours (both crema and sorbet) are available at any one time, with five specials every week, as well as bespoke gelato cakes.
Amongst the Gelato flavours are Poached Figs in Marsala, Milk Chocolate with Choc Peanut Fudge, Italian Nougat, Tiramisu, Pannacotta with Fig Jam and Amaretti Biscuit, Strawberries & Cream and Chocolate Fondant.
Meanwhile Sorbet flavours include Salted Coconut and Mango Salsa, Blood Orange or Chocolate Sorbet.
When choosing more than one flavour, Gelato Messina has advice on the best pairings - think Pear & Rhubarb + Chocolate Fondant or Dulce de Leche + Apple Pie.
