Small Bites - Pidapipo Gelateria on Chapel St @ Tuesday, June 27, 2017
Tuesday 30th May
Pidapipo has been on our radar for a while, as a potential substitute (though can one really substitute their one true love?) on Lygon St, and so we were delighted to stumble upon another branch on Chapel St after a disappointing dinner! It's quite close to Windsor Station too.
It was a winter's evening, we had tickets to Churchill the movie, but realized neither of us were actually interested so we took a leisurely dinner instead of the usual 12 minute rush. Pidapipo on a winter's night wasn't inviting as Messina on the same street, cold lighting not warm and inviting, oh well, we were after dessert.
At $4.50 a scoop, though we always get 2 for $6.50, standard prices. There were milk based ice creams, sorbets (dairy free), specials and other cold treats on the menu. Apple Crumble looks good, but so do all the gelatos. :P
There were no lines so we got to sample a few flavours before choosing.
I'll picked the pistachio and strawberry rose, why I keep going for things that taste like hand cream but less creamy I have no idea. But I did love the pistachio! There was a cinnamon and fig that would have paired nicely, but alas it was a sorbet. Fior de latte aka vanilla-ish was my third choice.
Service was friendly and they take card.
Just another ice cream parlour. Scroll & Messina are still my favourites.
