More vegan choices than I expected (around 6?), both of the coconut flavours are some of the best I've had. Boyfriend loves the passionfruit, quite bitter to me but tastes exactly like the fruit.

Good selection

A good selection of vegan gelato. The chocolate one is a hit with my kids. It's nice to have several choices to choose from. Always have different flavours to choose from too.

Pros: Good vegan choices

Cons: Be nice to have some more exquisite flavours

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For...Gelato?

Messina is a regular haunt of ours at this point, and while there are not as many vegan offerings as there could be, it is still a nice place to drop in on. Perfect on a hot summer's day, the gelato is refreshing and icy-cold, but the limited number of vegan flavours puts a bit of a dampener on the experience. If you're not overly fond of fruity flavours (and, of course, generic chocolate) maybe give this one a miss. However, on the off chance that you manage to get in on a day with a vegan special, there's some delicious treats to be had. The staff can also be really hit or miss.

Delicious vegan gelato

Delicious Asian inspired vegan options like the pandan coconut and the salted coconut and mango salsa flavours. The cones are also completely vegan.

Variety of gourmet gelatos

Love the clear and easy display of vegan gelatos avilabale. I had the vegan choc gelato and whilst it was a tad watery, it was still amazing and would def be back to buy. Really enjoyed the fancy ambience and atmosphere of shop. Only downside was that the seating was not overly inviting but still, a beautiful gelato shop!

Pros: Classy ambience , Clear display of vegan gelatos , Variety of colourful and delish gelatos

Cons: Plastic packaging
