Desserts to your door: sweet treat deliveries in the inner west

There’s something quite magical about a box of sweet treats being dropped at the doorway. Especially in lockdown, when meals are taking on greater significance, as a chance to transport, delight and excite.

For the first time ever there’s gelato in my freezer, much to the excitement of my two small children. I’ve had doughnuts delivered to a friend’s daughter in lockdown for her 16th birthday. And sent a care package to my mum with tea, a book and…chocolate, a hug in a box while we are apart.

It’s the small things, like a  sugar-laden delivery, that can help lockdown feel a little less like Groundhog Day. And in the inner west we have some truly decadent, indulgent and delicious options to choose from. Send one to a mate this week and watch your phone light up with heart emojis. Or order one for the family – the kids will think it’s Christmas.

Here are some to try.


Go for a classic sugar-dusted cinnamon doughnut, try out a new flavour combination or get outrageous with the icing. You’ll find options for all approaches below.


Grumpy Donuts, 72 Pyrmont Bridge Road, Camperdown, open 7 days for take away, delivering Monday to Friday,

Nutie Donuts specialises in dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan treats. It’s located at 13 Beattie Street Balmain, with pick-up and delivery available.

Dr Dough Doughnuts is based in Pyrmont and delivers Monday to Sunday, including same day delivery. Pick up is available too.


The fact that it’s winter makes a delivery of ice-cream all the more exciting! Some places will even let you order cones too.


Cow and Moon, 181 Enmore Rd, Enmore, open for take away 7 days, Sunday – Thursday 8.30am – 10pm and Friday – Saturday 8.30am – 11.00pm. Or order home delivery via the Bopple app. They’re selling chocolate crackles too!

Mapo Gelato, 123 King Street, Newtown, open for take away 7 days, Sunday – Thursday 12pm -9pm, and Friday – Saturday, 12pm to 9.30pm. Or order delivery via the Uber Eats and Deliveroo apps.

Gelato Messina has stores in various locations across Sydney, including Newtown, Forest Lodge and Pyrmont in the inner west. Home delivery is available via Uber Eats. Or visit their website for special releases, such as bake at home cookie pie kits.


They’re an old-school country classic with enduring appeal. Just don’t forget the jam and cream! The Inner West Mums community highly recommends these two delivery options.


The Sunday Baker, 340 Stanmore Road, Petersham. Open Tuesday to Saturday, from 7am to 12pm, with take away and delivery available. Order via their website: The Queen Lizzìe scone box (pictured at top of page) contains scones, chantilly cream and strawberry and rose jam from Drunken Sailor.

Sure, the milk arrowroot has its place, as does the Tiny Teddy. For something a bit special, these bakers are taking biscuits to the next level. We’re talking interesting flavours, themed-biscuits for an at-home celebration, or a DIY-kit.
