Gelato Messina at Crown St is my favourite Gelato Messina store out of the current three in Sydney, mainly because most of the time I find it easy to find parking spots in the area (albeit day or night) in which some are free parking after 6pm. In addition to that, the big park across the street is the best place to enjoy the gelato!
The queue might look longer than the other two stores, but it is probably just around 10-15 minute wait before you get yourself your delicious gelato.
I always pick my selections from the weekly blackboard specials. My word of advice when picking from the specials is to ask for a taste sample first, especially when the name sounds very out of ordinary, simply because they are simply stretching your gelato taste-palate to a whole new level you would not want to go (we are talking about gelato with spicy pork crackles, or ginger with sake gelato here!)
When I am not in the mood for their specials (which is very rarely). I usually get their coconut pandan gelato as well as their chocolate fondant. I also like their pistachio but the last time we ordered it was way saltier than usual.
