Summer has finally hit Melbourne and what other way to cool down then to a pop up store in Windsor, Scroll Ice Cream and have, well, SCROLLS!
Wondering around in the city for date day, Mr D decided he needed coffee so we decided on Laurent since Mr D hasn’t been to the one in the city. After what feels like a gazillion years later, we finally found the building and it was GORGEOUS (shame I forgot to take a photo of it though). Mr D got an ice coffee since it was 31 degrees (summer has finally come) and as usual, he wasn’t impressed with it at all. He just shrugged and finished his drink.
Wondering around in the city lagging behind Mr D while he looks at more sneakers (yes, how many sneakers does one actually need?) and I realised that I needed a sugar hit. So where do we decide to go? Cupcake central at MC of course.
Since we didn’t have dessert after dinner, Mr Slowpoke suggested we go down the road and try out the new dessert place, am Dessert which opens till midnight every night (Yes, even on a school night!).
We were at the cheese festival at the Prahan market and I needed a sugar hit so we walked willingly (well I forced Mr D…) to Burch and Purchese since I haven’t been yet.
I’ve been seeing photos of this amazing hot chocolate with fairy floss and I convince the creative couple to drop by for some coffee (OR HOT CHOCOLATE!!!). We got there at 2:30PM and was pretty surprised that it wasn’t packed. You know you’re here when you see the sign with the hast tag (get it?? because it’s called HASH!).
While shopping casually in Westfield I was getting grumpy since I didn’t have any sugar in me, sooooo Mr suggested KOKO BLACK!! I’m more of a sweets person and I know koko black chocolates are a bit more on the darker side but hey, I’m not going to refuse CHOCOLATE!!
We entered the chocolate hub and was greeted by friendly staff and chose to sit in the corner with the cushy chairs (not going to be a sucker and sit on them hard chairs yo!). I decided to get the classic belgian hot chocolate. There were so many different hot chocolate flavours and since I was in a boring mood, I chose the classic one. To be honest, it was okay. Not super sweet, not that thick but it wasn’t bad either.
Dex2rose is the new gelaterie in the CBD, opened for 7 months now and these bad boys are using Nitrogen to make their ice creams and gelato. I was invited by Dex2rose for a tasting menu and all opinions expressed are my own.
Dex2rose is located in an alley way and there is a sign pointing to the location (LOVE SIGNAGES!).

Outdoor Area And Entrance
I told Mr D I’ll come here with him but I was already in the city with my uni gang and decided to go in ninja mode and hopefully Mr D won’t know (I hope you’re not reading this hohoho). We stood awkwardly at the front of the shop and tried to look at the menu from afar (yeah, we’re cool like that) and was like Chill Bro to each other.
It was date day and Mr D took me to a little hidden cafe in Melbourne CBD (he knows I love those hidden places) and it looked like it was literally in someone’s teeny house. We stepped in and the decor was amazingly adorable with little pot plants everywhere. Be warned though, there is very limited seating (in other words real cosy). We were lucky enough to found a table and ordered our coffees! My latte was pretty good, not amazing but still very decent. Look how cute the swan is though (YAY!!).
