Sydney’s Best Gelato 

C9 Gelato

Sydney is renowned for its stunning beaches, iconic landmarks, and amazing locations to dine out. One of the favoured pastimes of Sydney siders and visitors to Sydney is the exquisite desserts where Gelato reins supreme. Sydney is home to an array of amazing Gelato shops, each offering a wide range of flavours and their own unique dining experience. We decided to check them out and came up with our list Sydney’s top 5 Gelato spots for you can enjoy as we did.

At the top of our list is C9 Chocolate and Gelato, with over 30 scrumptious flavours, the smooth, creamy texture and amazing taste of their Gelato, made fresh in store, literally had our team coming back for more. And we didn’t just try one C9 store, we went to three, and while we were there, we of course had to sample the desserts! The Gelato Gem’s and their new groundbreaking Tipsy Bliss were at the top of our faves. But the overall C9 experience and their delicious Gelato, made them an easy choice for our number one spot.

C9 Chocolate and Gelato

As we mentioned above, in first spot by far is C9 Chocolate and Gelato. If you are a lover of Gelato, visiting a C9 store is a must. Boasting over 30 delicious flavours, with vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options, C9 has seemed to pop up from no where and is now the go to name in Sydney’s dessert scene. With more than 15 locations spread across Sydney, there’s a C9 store close to pretty much everywhere, making it the ideal location to satisfy your Gelato cravings.

One thing we loved was the consistency across the stores of the C9 Gelato flavours. Their commitment to quality and innovation is evident in their diverse flavours, from classics like chocolate and vanilla to more adventurous options like pistachio and black sesame, there really is something for everyone. For those who prefer to indulge from the comfort of their home, C9 also offers convenient online ordering through standard delivery partners like Uber Eats and Menulog.

Another standout feature of C9 is their range of yummy desserts. Gelato Gems and C9’s Croffles, a delightful fusion of croissant and waffle, topped with your favourite Gelato. Loved by our youngest secret shopper  to our oldest, they are perfect for anytime of day. For those of you who love to indulge and love a dessert with a bit of a kick, and who are over 18 of course, boy do we have a treat for you! Tipsy Bliss is a groundbreaking dessert that features your favourite C9 Gelato infused with a hint of liqueur and the taste is simply divine.

So C9 really do seem to have it all. But we haven’t got to their coffee! Usually a Gelato shop is not where you’d think to stop for great coffee. Well change your perspective people! C9 coffee is up there with the best and pairing a rich espresso with a scoop of gelato is a match made in heaven, making C9 our number one go to destination Gelato, dessert and coffee!.
The friendly service we received at each store couldn’t be faulted, and the cool, inviting atmosphere made it a fab place to visit with friends or the fam. But when it comes down to it, we were shopping for Sydney’s Best Gelato and for that alone, C9 takes our first place position by a leading mile.
