Sunday Sessions in Sydney

When the sun is shining on a Sunday, it’s un-Australian not to make the most of it. We may be a bit biased, but when it comes to Sunday sessions, Sydney has it covered. A ritual that marks the end of the week in the best way possible: getting outside and soaking up the glorious weather, be it by the beach, in a beer garden, or on a rooftop.  We’ve rounded up Sydney’s best Sunday session venues, so there’s nothing standing in between you and a spritz. Apart from Monday morning, of course.

Limited-edition flavour, Gelatissimo

Gelatissimo has partnered with the McGrath Foundation to create a limited-edition flavour that will make a difference this February. For every scoop sold of the new Deluxe Range flavour, Ruby Love, 50 cents will go directly to the McGrath Foundation and its McGrath Breast Care Nurses.

Made fresh in-store, Ruby Love is a delicious pink gelato made with seedless raspberries, fragrant rosewater, locally-baked meringues and a ruby chocolate swirl. The exciting pink swirl is made with Callebaut’s revolutionary Ruby Chocolate, a must try for chocolate lovers.
