Sydney has its fair share of dessert havens and sometimes it’s okay to give Messina a miss and opt for something a little bit different! Here are our picks of the 8 Sydney desserts you must try this month.
If you think that ice cream in Sydney can’t get any better, then you are oh so wrong! Aqua S has just opened its doors and boy is it dreamy. Sea salt soft serve enveloped in a cloud of yummy fairy floss (yes fairy floss) sound wacky (and delicious) enough for you? Get in quick and get creative—there are new flavours that will be popping up every once in a while but the fun part starts when you start adding toppings yourself!
Bondi has a new kid on the block and it’s not Mexican, who woulda thunk it? Avila’s is a Sydney wine bar and creperie and will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. So pop in and try the dessert crepe—it’s filled with banana, salted caramel, Chantilly cream, and chocolate sauce. Erm, yum!
Need we say more than red velvet cake? Jillian’s Cakery makes a delicious one that shouldn’t be missed. Your cake cravings will be met in every shape and form at Jillian’s—so go forth and try one of her freshly baked treats!
Tiramisu can be a little bit tricky to get right but Vapiano passes the test and their take on the Italian dessert staple is not to be missed. So, after you have stuffed yourself with their amazing pasta and pizzas, reward yourself with a serving of the tiramisu. Go on, say The Urban List told you to.
LP’s Quality Meats
Coconut sorbet and watermelon sorbet sound good to you? We assure you it is as tasty as it is pretty, so put it on your sweet hit list this month.
The Sweet Spot Patisserie
If you need some cheering up then get yourself to the Sweet Spot Patisserie in Randwick. The glass fridges are lined with every imaginable sweet treat and man, is it pretty!
Bondi Farmers Market
Krispy Kremes are a thing of the past, as the doughnut world takes on a life of its own. Glazed Doughnuts at the Saturday Bondi Farmers Markets put a great twist on the traditional doughnut with a quirky range of toppings and fillings. Our favourite is the Pina Colada—a doughnut with a vanilla bean glaze and a coconut and seared Sailor Jerry pineapple ring!
Four Frogs Creperie
Need we say more than crepes and Nutella? Didn’t think so. It’s a classic and Four Frogs does it to perfection. If you’re feeling particularly indulgent, try one of their Nutella milkshakes, too!
