That costs how much?!!
Rather than going for dinner and drinks on your next date, why not choose some of Sydney’s finest desserts instead?
We are a city known for our sweet-tooth which never stops, so take advantage of this and indulge with your next date! Try just some of our favourite places to enjoy a few sweets.
Level 3 Westfield Sydney – Cnr of Pitt St Mall & Market St
Taste some of Ladurée’s iconic macarons, and complete your meal with a delicious coffee or signature hot chocolate. We recommend you try the salted caramel and pistachio which are must-haves at the original Ladurée in Paris.
280 Crown Street, Darlinghurst
Try an authentic taste of Italian Gelato in the heart of Sydney, which is easy to access by both car, public transport, and even by foot. The service is extremely welcoming, and offers a prime view of Crown Street and other restaurants nearby. The Belgian chocolate is a must-have if you have a huge sweet-tooth.
Randwick, Surry Hills, Crows Nest, Darlinghurst
Named after a traditional Hungarian pastry which is filled with nuts and chocolate, and often sold as street-snacks comes this charming bakery which is available at 4 different locations. If you’re a newcomer, try the Kurtosh with Nutella chocolate and a cup of coffee.
N2 Extreme Gelato
43/1 Dixon Street, Sydney
A new and innovative way to enjoy your treat, especially if you’re into the science behind each scoop of gelato! All options are made by Gelato Scientists in white laboratory coats (seriously though), and use liquid nitrogen for those signature smooth textures.
