HOT: 1565 Gelateria, 3 Gower St, Kensington

HOT: Miinot Gelato, 71 Melville Rd, Pascoe Vale South

Melbourne heat wave = daily gelati tasting. And while Miinot Gelato is hidden away in Pascoe Vale South it’s well worth the trip. If you’re local, lucky you! The tiny shop is on a main road but not really close to anything else – no cafes or shops near it. Nevertheless, on my arrival there […]
