Gelateria Millefiori

Gelateria Millefiori is a fun new find of mine. Situated on Keilor Road, Niddrie, Melbourne, in the heart of Niddrie’s trendy shopping district; this enticing dessert cafe is a happy find. My husband and I stumbled upon it one particularly difficult Sunday afternoon. Deciding to leave the hurly-burly of home, stepping out for a breather, my husband turned to me and asked “a walk or coffee?” On this occasion coffee was the more soothing of the two options and so we headed off to look for good coffee and nice ambience.
While a gelateria seems an unlikely choice for ordering coffee, this place captured my eye. I spied a nicely decorated interior, a coffee machine and in the cake window, an all-time favourite treat of mine: Lemon Tart. Feeling the need for an extra pick-me-up I ordered one, and was not disappointed. It was served in such a lovely way, and was large enough to share. The service was friendly, the ambience fresh, fun and relaxing. The coffee and cake most excellent…it was enough to warrant a second visit. Next time we bought along our daughter who ordered ice-cream (the main point of this cafe) and she said it was excellent! I agree the gelato in the front counter looks amazing, and the waitress said they make it all themselves.
On a street boasting many eating options I highly recommend this one if sweet is what you’re looking for.
