Summer’s coming!

DOLCE HOUSE GELATO – 225 Tucker Road, McKinnon VIC – (03) 9578 6833

So, it’s a hot day, and you’re craving some gelato AND can’t be bothered driving to Carlton or Northcote or Fitzroy or Brunswick East like all the other ‘trendy hipsters’.

If you are like us and live in the Bayside or the surrounding area …… well! If you haven’t realised it already (because yes it took us a year to realise this) there is THE most AMAZING gelato place in your neighbourhood!!!


Best of all, they are also very dog friendly! Now, this is a place where the locals hang out. So, if you want a relaxed atmosphere where “everybody knows your/your dog’s name” this is the place to be! OK so that’s a bit corny and shows my age, but our evening ice cream run turned out to be such a pleasant experience.

dog water bowl/bucketNow literally, every local human and their dog is either at this place or passing through. So expect a lot of cuddles and socialising for your dog. So much fun 🙂 They even provide you with a special water bowl/bucket!

Off lead dog parkAlso we found out on our second visit here that McKinnon Reserve which is an off lead dog park is just literally 7 minutes walk down the road. It’s fenced and HUGE – so you and your furry friend can do your own thing.

The gelato – brilliant! Now, everyone knows the best way to judge a gelato place is through the basics, yes, vanilla. And I have to say, one of the best I’ve had.

It was creamy, flavourful and easy on the stomach. So far we have also tried the Nutella cookies and cream, and macadamia honey (you can really taste the warmth of the honey without it being too sweet! Brilliant!). All I have to say is, WATCH OUT Gelato Messina!

We give this place a 5/5 because we had SUCH a lovely evening! The guys behind the counter – lovely! The gelato – delicious! The atmosphere and people – so warm and friendly! The whole family had a great time 😀
