on 09 May 2016
If you’re dining at The Strand, you can’t skip the most important meal of the day - and we’re not talking about breakfast! With all your cravings covered, here is the ultimate hit list of temptations to top off your meal. They might be a bit naughty, but they are oh so nice.
No need to fly to Sydney to get your hands on this frozen delight! The gelato that has everyone's tongues wagging is right here in Coolangatta. Every one of the 40-odd Messina flavours is made fresh on site, every day, along with a changing weekly specials board. Keep it traditional with Choc Mint or Pistachio, or indulge in the likes of Apple Pie – creamy gelato folded through with pieces of freshly baked, homemade apple pie.
Love chocolate and love pizza? Leave it to the experts to combine the two! Max Brenner’s Chocolate Pizza is a crowd favourite and with good reason. With a melted chocolate sauce, topped with toasted marshmallows, fresh banana and crunchy caramelised nuts it’s perfect for two - but who said you have to share?
Featuring a spectacular feast of colours and flavours, you can’t go past the macarons at Passiontree Velvet. They even have gluten-free options, so there is something for everyone! Can’t choose? Settle in for the Macaron High Tea where you can sample 12 different flavours.
Whether you’re a health conscious foodie or looking for something sweet on the go, you don’t want to miss Top Juice’s not-so-naughty chocolate dipped strawberries. There is nothing better than being able to indulge in a treat - especially one that’s guilt-free!
Griffith St Larder
For a tasty treat that is out of this world, look no further than Larder’s famous Cronuts. The lovechild of a croissant and a donut, this mountain of crunchy, flaky, layered goodness is the best of both worlds all rolled into one. Their show stopper can also be topped with soft serve ice cream or injected with a salted caramel ‘syringe’. Just try and stop at one of these mouth-watering morsels!
