Brisbane’s ten best dessert spots as voted by you!

Let’s be honest with ourselves – it doesn’t matter what you’ve had for dinner, there’s always room for dessert. Brisbane is absolutely flush with spots to get your sugar fix, whether it be in a decadent cake, a few weighty scoops of gelati or a dozen doughnuts. The EAT/drink Awards saw dozens of dessert destinations vie for your vote, but alas there could only be one winner. That doesn’t mean the other spots aren’t deserving of praise – far from it! We’ve put together a list of the top ten dessert spots in Brisbane – as voted by you – to give you a definitive list when a craving for something sweet hits. more

Enjoy a double scoop of goodness at La Macelleria’s new West End gelateria

It’s not unusual for people to travel across town to get their fix of authentic Italian gelato from La Macelleria, and if you don’t understand why then you clearly haven’t tried it. La Macelleria’s Teneriffe gelataria has been putting smiles on dials for years with its signature brand of authentic Italian gelato, which is why it is a really big deal that a second location has just opened in West End. Yep, that’s right – La Macelleria is now open on Montague Road, meaning those south of the river don’t have to travel to get some gelato in their gob. We still would, though – it’s just that damn good. more

It’s a gelati party! Gelato Messina has finally arrived in South Brisbane

We’ve been waiting oh so patiently for this day to arrive, but now it’s finally here we're not sure what to do with our hands. Full-blown pandemonium is threatening to break out with the news that at 5:00 pm this afternoon, Wednesday March 29, Gelato Messina will open the doors to its very first Brisbane gelato parlour. We’re so happy we could cry, but we'll compose ourselves just long enough to avoid watering down our sweet, sweet gelato. We’re officially saying goodbye to our summer bods without a shred of remorse – Gelato Messina is here now, and that’s all we need. more

Stick a fork (or your face) into some sweet treats from Albion Provisions

If heaven exists on Earth then we’d put money down that it’s located at Albion Provisions, which has opened today on Sandgate Road. We’re not just paying lip service (unless you call smushing cupcakes into your mouth lip service) – this is a seriously worship-worthy institution. This new manufactory of mouth-watering goodness comes from the team behind James Street’s dessert destination Jocelyn’s Provisions and is churning out cakes on cakes on cakes, as well as a scrumptious bounty of sweet and savoury treats for Jocelyn’s fans (new and old) to enjoy. more
