3 Gower Street, Kensington, Victoria
1565 is a tiny shop, which is quite easily missed on the high street opposite Kensington Station. There isn’t a massive range of flavours, but definitely an adequate range. All the gelato are made on premise. The staff are very friendly and happy to let customers try a few flavours before deciding what to order.
I got the pistachio and watermelon & mint (double scoop $6, single scoop $4.5). Pistachio was decent, with bits of pistachio through it. Watermelon & mint was surprisingly good -granita like, very refreshing for a hot day, and not too milky. I had the hazelnut the last time I visited, it was quite good, perhaps a little sweet for my liking.
I would rank Gelato Messina higher on the quality and creativity stakes. But this is not bad for a local gelato store.
Value for money: 7/10
Overall Score: 29/40
