Join the Nutella party!
Nutella is almost synonymous with the word ‘dessert’ nowadays and some of Sydney’s best desserts have Nutella incorporated into it; so much so that there was even a temporary shortage of Nutella in some parts of Australia!
This list of 11 unbelievable Nutella creations will undoubtedly inspire you to embark on your own search for the ultimate Nutella dessert.
1. Nutella Waffle Jar @ My Sweet Boutique
As the name implies, these sweet treat consists of waffles stuffed into your personalised Nutella jar for just $10! Topped with sliced strawberries, whipped cream, and a scoop of ice-cream, this dessert has gotten the attention of Sydney-siders and tourists all over.
My Sweet Boutique is tucked away in a little corner, sharing the same lot as a petrol station. Visitors can choose to park their cars in front of this pop-up like stall, and wait for their order to be called out. For those without a car, don’t worry, there are milk crates readily available for you to sit and wait.
The waffles are perfectly executed with a warm, buttery texture that is slightly crispy on the outside and softer on the inside, making it one of the best waffles in Sydney. For the jar collectors out there, get excited because you can keep the jar after you’re done devouring its contents!
Address: 379-383 Enmore Road, Marrickville NSW 2204
Opening Hours: Varies – keep in touch with their social media!
2. Tella-Ball Shakes @ Foodcraft Espresso & Bakery
Place a Nutella donut on top of a milkshake and you will get customers flocking to your doorstep. This is literally the case for the latest Tella-Ball Shake craze that dominated (or rather still dominates) social media.
Foodcraft Espresso & Bakery was forced to close during a period of time in order to restock after selling 1450 Tella-Ball shakes in two days. The café also reportedly goes through about 30kgs of Nutella a day. However looks certainly aren’t deceiving for this beauty. These Tella-Balls are made fresh on-site every day with a generous filling of Nutella.
The consistency of the shake is thick and tastes like you’re drinking Nutella directly out of the jar. The outer layer of the donut is not too sweet, which counteracts the sweetness of the shake and Nutella filling, making the taste something worth queuing for!
Note: shakes are available in all donut flavours – Nutella, salted caramel, vanilla bean & ricotta and strawberry jam, all for the same price of $10.
Address: 33 Bridge St, Erskineville NSW 2043
Opening Hours: Tue – Fri 7am to 4pm, Sat – Sun 8am to 4pm
3. Fried Maltella Ice-cream @ Piccolo Me
For the ice-cream lovers out there, there is no doubt that you will also love fried ice-cream. It is a tricky technique to master, but Piccolo Me does a sweet job (no pun intended). This heavenly dessert consists of Nutella ice-cream topped with crushed Maltesers drizzled with hot salted caramel sauce.
Piccolo Me’s main outlet is at Castlereagh St in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, but this café has 10 different outlets all over Sydney so Sydney-siders, check out their website for the full list of locations and see if you’ve got one near you.
For those who have a budding sweet tooth and want to try more of their desserts, Piccolo Me is also famous for their Piccolo Me Nutella Bomb ($4) which follows a simple process – dunk the block of Nutella into the steaming cup of coffee or hot milk, then sprinkle the chocolate flakes on the top for extra flavour.

Brewristas is situated in the heart of Glebe, surrounded by rows and rows of cafes and restaurants. This café is only three months old, but has already garnered the attention of customers and big coffee masters like Campos and Toby’s Estate.
Another favourite Nutella delight at Brewristas is the Nutella frappe ($7) with a rich gianduja (chocolate and hazelnut paste) flavour which gives off a very distinct Nutella taste. If your sugar levels have still not peaked, try the Ultimate Nutella Frappe ($10) which has added condensed milk and a brownie.

Pasticceria Papa’s Baked Ricotta Cheesecake with Nutella is a delightful dessert that is creamy but not too thick. The pastry is soft as a sponge and encases the lightest, fluffiest and creamiest ricotta filling. The cheesecake is dusted with cinnamon and icing sugar, and the beauty of this dessert is that it isn’t very sweet, rich, and ‘cheesy’, which is unusual for a cheesecake dessert!
For a reasonable $4.10 a slice, this delectable treat certainly lives up to its hype. There are hardly any bad reviews about this cheesecake, and it is not surprise that many locals think that this is the best cheesecake in Australia!

Their Infamous Nutella Shake comes with a waffle cone, sour worms, liquorice and hazelnuts, making this a fun treat to have! The shake isn’t as sweet as you would expect, which is a good thing considering how rich Nutella already is and with the mountain of sugary goodness on top. For a reasonable $8, customers usually order a shake with their meal which may not be advisable if you’re a small eater!

8. Cronut ‘Ice-Cream’ Sandwich @ Speedo’s Café
This fine-looking stack consists of a Nutella cronut stuffed with coco whip topped with chocolate sauce and fresh strawberries. Coco whip is a vegan, bio-fermented coconut soft serve that is both diary and gluten free. Everything about this dessert is close to perfection.
The texture of the cronut is crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. One great thing about this cronut ‘ice-cream’ sandwich is that it is lighter and not as sweet compared to the other desserts presented in this list. The coco chip and strawberries also give this dessert a refreshing taste and will leave you feeling (almost) guilt-free!
