Meno Zero Gelato and Dessert Bar, Dromana

We love to eat gelati anywhere, anytime, but there seems to be an extra special affinity between gelati and the seaside. And after a rather bracing walk with the dog along the Bay Trail from Safety Beach, we were looking forward to some great gelati from Meno Zero Dromana.

Gelateria Bico, Brunswick

Being rated the world’s second best city in 2019 (after New York City, according to Time Out) must consider a lot of factors that us Melburnians cherish – food, culture, nightlife, community, happiness.

Pidapipó, Melbourne CBD

The secret of truly great gelati: make it fresh every day on-site in small batches. No pastes, no additives, just all-natural ingredients. This is the ethos behind Pidapipó, one of our favourite artisan gelaterie in Melbourne. And last year it opened a new outlet in Degraves Street.

Paradise Gelato, Cheltenham

Joyce, the chef at Paradise Gelato, knows her stuff. She studied at the Gelato University in Italy (yes, it does exist!) and then spent a year as a dessert chef in Paris. And the end product – fantastic. Super intense flavours created from all-natural ingredients by a skilled artisan maker.

Over the few short months since it opened in October 2018, we’ve been hearing glowing reports about Paradise from Jonah. Particularly about the gelateria’s signature flavour, kalamansi – a citrus fruit popular in South-East Asia.

Bononia, North Adelaide

At the end of a very long day, we were looking forward to unwind over some gelati. And Bononia – a charming dessert café in North Adelaide’s Melbourne Street – was ideal for an after-dinner treat.

It’s a happy place, with friendly staff. At night-time, strips of purple fairy lights add a touch of sparkle to the interior.
