Set menu of delicious sorbet flavours, but no plant milk

I love that the vegan sorbets are part of the standard menu. In this location that includes unusual flavours of blood orange, pandan coconut, and salted coconut and mango. The only MAJOR letdown is that they only carry full cream cow milk. They offer not one plant milk option for the hot drinks during winter. In 2023, that's just a bad business decision.

Pros: Standard menu includes vegan sorbets

It’s ok...

All my non vegan friends rave non-stop about Messina and their creative, crazy and delicious ever-changing flavours. Unfortunately for vegans the choices are much more limited to a short menu of standard sorbet flavours, mostly fruit flavoured. Don’t get me wrong, I love the lemon sorbet, and it’s great the cones are vegan. But for the cost, and the amount of time you will spend in line, it is probably not worth it unless you are going there with non vegan friends.

Pros: decent number of vegan sorbet options, Cones are vegan

Cons: Expensive , Always a long line

They told me the Chocolate was vegan for years, I only found out recently that it’s not, such.
The only vegan flavours are fruit, which is boring. But it’s okay on a hot day.
