If you want to find out where all of these gelato craze began, then there is no better place to visit than the original Gelato Messina store at Darlinghurst. Although the store is pretty small and often packed with crowds and accessorized with queues, it is definitely worth lining up. You can hardly go wrong with their gelatos, and if you are more of a cautious person, you can ask for a sample before you commit to your selections.
The service is very quick, and with (limited) seats available both inside and outside, enjoying your awesome gelato in its intended Darlinghurst-esque atmosphere is certainly a breeze.
Dont forget to also visit their gelato cakes next door, where you can witness a showcase of gelato cakes being made right in front of your eyes, which are also available for purchase for your family, loved ones, or even for yourself.
Getting to this store might require a little walk from either sides of Oxford Street or William Street (or Kings Cross Station), whilst finding a parking spot in the area can also be challenging at times
