8 of the most delicious desserts at restaurants in Darling Harbour
Darling Harbour’s restaurants are the home of decadent desserts in Sydney.
Within a couple minutes’ walk, you’ll find the best gelato you’ve ever tasted, Hungarian chimney cakes covered in cinnamon sugar, stacks of pancakes piled with glorious toppings and more chocolate than you could ever eat - but you’ll be tempted to try.
Forget about pub crawls, this is a dessert crawl. Get your stretchy pants on and discover the 8 most delicious desserts in Darling Harbour.
Pancakes are the perfect excuse to eat dessert for breakfast and the best place to get them in Sydney has to be Pancakes on The Rocks. Their menu features dozens of fluffy, decadent stacks covered in fillings but our favourite by far is the chocolate and peanut butter pancake. It features a homemade smooth peanut butter filling sandwiched between rich chocolate pancakes, topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with peanut butter and - you guessed it - chocolate sauce.
Gelatissimo is Australia’s most popular gelato brand, and with good reason. Every scoop they serve is made fresh in-store every day using natural ingredients free from artificial flavours and colours. Their most delicious flavour is the red velvet royale, a rich cream cheese gelato folded through with decadent chunks of red velvet cake.
The Swiss geniuses behind Lindt Chocolate Cafe have gone and opened an entire Darling Harbour restaurant dedicated to chocolate. Bless them. When we visit we can never go past the luxurious Lindt chocolate sundae with vanilla, white chocolate ice cream, brownie bits, chocolate fudge sauce and chantilly cream, topped with dark and white chocolate shavings.
Nothing looks like a celebration more than the colourful creations including this Strawberry Lychee Cake, with lychee jelly encased in a light and sweet strawberry mousse which can now be found at the KOI Dessert Bar Pop-Up in Maker's Dozen.
