Il Melograno specialises in creative fusions as well as staying true to traditional Italian flavours. It was dreamed up by Carl Fodera, following his return to Melbourne after spending ten years in Italy, and third generation gelato maker Marco Enea. Featuring a rotation of seasonal flavours, the store’s creations boast no preservatives or artificial flavourings. As well as old favourites, such as hazelnut and lemon sorbet, you can also choose from more decadent options. Experience rosemary, pear and elderflower, and Iranian pistachio gelato, all made fresh on site. Il Melograno also doubles as a cafe, offering Italian-inspired breakfasts and lunches until 3 pm.
One of Sydney’s coolest exports, Gelato Messina opened the doors to its first Melbourne location in 2013. Now with locations in Windsor and Richmond, Gelato Messina is known for its extensive range of ice cream and gelato made fresh and full of flavour. Wait times can be pretty long, even on cold days, with lines being known to stretch all the way around the corner. But rest assured, the rich range of icy delights is well worth the wait. Try the apple pie ice cream with home-baked cinnamon, coffee ice cream, salted caramel, pear and rhubarb, classic chocolate or any of the other 40 flavours on offer. Gelato Messina also serves up rotating seasonal flavours and a selection of other delicious dessert options.
Miinot Gelato is a family gelateria creating natural desserts without compromising taste. While it offers only one bench style seat, you can still grab one of their flavours on the go. Expect flavour-filled gelato made with an all-fruit base. There are zero pre-mixed pastes used when creating this decadent gelato, except for the kids’ bubblegum that is. You can choose from a selection of rotating flavours, including four or five vegan-friendly options, such as lemon, forest berries, mango, and strawberry and pear. You can also treat yourself to a fancier flavour like Nonno, which blends mascarpone with sultanas soaked in Pedro Ximenez sherry.

Widely recognised as one of the best artisan gelaterias in Melbourne, Gelateria Primavera’s reputation indeed precedes it. Located out the front of Spring Street Grocer, its fluorescent shop front will lure you in, while its prime selection of gelato will keep you coming back. The gelato is made daily using the highest quality ingredients and is kept fresh in old-school pozzetti cabinets, ensuring that the taste is top notch. The rotating selection of milk-based gelato and dairy-free sorbets includes something for lovers of classic gelato, as well as those with a penchant for adventure. Try the traditional fior di latte, pistachio or lemon sorbet, or a creative concoction such as peach and basil sorbet, salted caramel laced with chilli or the watermelon and fresh mint.
