Ice-cream lovers in the city, this one's for you. Our favourite reason to let-out jeans, Pidapipo, have graced us with a brand new store, smack bang in the CBD.
It's popped up on Degraves St (as if Degraves could get any more delicious). Most of the cult favourite flavours from Carlton and Windsor are here, part of 20 flavours, made fresh daily. From Dulce de Leche to Mascarpone, you can’t go wrong. They’ve even brought back crowd—pleaser, Malted Chocolate.
The pastels are back, but this new store looks a little different to the others. Rabindra Naidoo Design handled the design, as per norm, but they've gone for a mash-up: "Italian Rationalist Architecture of the 1920’s’s meets Mad Hatters Tea Party". Sounds weird, but we'll go with it. We hate irrational architecture.
Right when you think they can’t treat us any better, the peeps at Pidapipo have also brought out a couple of new treats to keep things interesting. Going back to their Italian roots, the store offers a selection of traditional granitas, able to be paired with a scoop of gelato for the ultimate icy goodness. Kind of like a high-class spider.
We’ll take a cup of the Fior di Latte with Raspberry granita, thanks. Or maybe the Dark chocolate with Blood Orange. You know what, we’ll take both.
Where: 8 Degraves St
Opening hours: 7-days,12pm – 11pm
