Word on the street is that the famed dessert mecca, Gelato Messina has got its sight set on Perth with a permanent shop in the works – travel interstate no more for your ice cream fix!
The eastern states have long been enjoying the mouth-watering treats, and Mount Lawley is said to be the chosen hotspot come mid-October 2023.
If you’re unfamiliar with Gelato Messina, their ice creams see 40 freshly churned flavours – 35 of which are permanent classics, with five new specials every week.
Expect to indulge in scoops with the likes of: fresh mint gelato with chocolate chip; coffee and salted caramel with whipped cream; panna cotta with fig jam and amaretti biscuits; and Argentinean caramelised milk – at a glance!
Gelato Messina’s Mount Lawley location will continue serving ice creams with a focus on quality and sustainability at the forefront of the business.
Gelato Messina owner, Nick Palumbo along with his brother and business partner, Danny Palumbo ensure that almost every product used throughout the ice cream-making process is done in-house for that fresh touch, with the dairy and hazelnuts produced and grown on their own farms to guarantee quality control.
Plus, the team handmakes special dessert toppings each day which complement the ice creams just nicely; along with exclusive dessert collaborations with local businesses, holiday cakes, and a bunch of vegan options up for grabs.
Although details are still on the downlow, we can tell you that the line-up-worthy gelato has been voted Australia’s best by the Good Food Guide, and that the up-and-coming store in Mount Lawley will grow the Messina ice cream fleet to 30 boutiques within their 22 years in the biz – how about it!
