4:30pm: A scoop or two of Gelato Messina

If you work your way down through the street art of Fitzroy and Collingwood, you'll probably find yourself weaving around Smith St. When you're ready for a break, take it at Gelato Messina. I don't care what temperature it is or how long the queue might be - this gelato is worth it.

The regular menu includes two dozen gelato flavours and almost a dozen vegan friendly sorbets, from classics like chocolate chip, pistachio and hazelnut through to extravagant concoctions of poached figs in masala and salted caramel with white chocolate. The specials list can get a little wacky - their potato chip-pumped Mr Potatohead was unforgettable, and they seem to enjoy imitating other desserts like lamingtons and pecan pie.

Line up and chill out with a scoop or two, continue roaming to your satisfaction and then...
