The first Gelato Messina concession store for the local area opened inside Harris Farm Lane Cove recently and just in time for summer!
Lower North Shore residents are the first community to pilot a brand new concept store with what is claimed to be ”Australia’s best gelato” – Gelato Messina, and it’s opened nearby in the incredible new Harris Farm in Lane Cove.
Event though it’s the first store on this side of the Bridge, the gelato powerhouse needs no introduction. Founder Nick Polumbo and his creative team have been scooping weird, wacky and wonderful flavours to the people of Sydney since 2002. They’ve since gained a cult following, particularly with their signature salted caramel and white chocolate, house-made dulce de leche and the vegan chocolate sorbet.
Says Messina HQ of the new Lane Cove store:
“This isn’t your standard Messina store, but a brand new concept centred around convenience and the ultimate dessert haul to stockpile in your freezers. if you’re a cookie and gelato fiend, you’ll be spoilt for choice with a smorgasbord of products for every occasion and emotion.”
Gelato fans will be happy to learn that each day offers a new selection of four rotating freshly churned gelato scoops showcasing signature and special flavours.
But that’s not all… On offer are the following Messina specialties to try:
GRAB ‘N’ GO GELATO: “a range of six pre-packed signature pints, designed to stock in your freezer and eat straight from the tub or on your favourite hot dessert. Available in French Vanilla, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Chip, Milk Chocolate, Berries & Cream, Caramel.”
