Or are you loving the hermit life? We don't judge you if you blob on the couch and eat a litre of delicious creamy gelato, or inhale half a dozen donuts over a weekend.

Looking for some dessert ideas? Get started with these Darling Harbour restaurants serving the sweet stuff to dine-in, have delivered or to takeaway.
Pancakes are technically breakfast, but the rules are out the window and we say you can eat them whenever you like. Auvers do a particularly delicious pancake infused with matcha, and slathered in red bean paste, matcha glaze and raspberry sorbet.
They’re offering 20% off pick up orders and they’re on Deliveroo if you don’t fancy going outside.
Bubble Nini serves the prettiest bubble tea around. From ‘The Sun and Moon’; a Sun Moon Lake black tea with caramalised brown sugar, milk, to the ‘Honey I’m Home’; butterfly pea flower tea with fresh lemon and lime, aloe-vera jelly and chia seeds, the Bubble Nini menu serves up the most insta-worthy and delicious drinks around.
To scratch your 2-month-without milk tea itch, Bubble Nini is available to takeaway, or order online delivery with EASI or Hungry Panda.
Gelato Messina say they make the best gelato in Australia and we second that. They farm their own Jersey cows so that their gelato is extra creamy, and make their chocolate inhouse from cocoa shipped directly from ecuador. Try the super dulce de leche and get ready to have your mind blown.
Grab a scoop and enjoy it in Darling Sqaure's courtyard, or get your takeaway tub via Deliveroo and get your gelato fix in the comfort of your own home.
Bengong Black makes super premium pearl tea in countless flavours, but what we’re really here for is their desserts. We’re big fans of their black sesame soft serve, sprinkled with gold flakes, and we could eat dozens of their pillowy little cakes infused with yummy fruit cream.
They’re open for hangs in store, and available for takeaway.
These guys make the most over the top, scrumptious Japanese-inspired desserts in Sydney. For a sweet feast, get the mango kakigori: a mountain of shaved ice flavoured with cream and mango syrup. Or if you want to eat dessert for breakfast, grab the matcha brick toast with matcha gelato and matcha cookie. Yum.
Dopa by Devon are open for dining, but you can also order takeaway from their website, UberEats or Easi.
Gong Cha are famous for their bubble teas but their smoothies are just as delicious and much more desserty. You could go for something that sounds healthy like the matcha red bean smoothie, but we won’t judge if you grab the cookie choco flavour.
Pop instore to order your takeaway drink. Alternatively, you can order on Deliveroo or UberEats in Darling Harbour and surrounding suburbs.
Kurtosh is short for Kürtőskalács, the word for those delicious Hungarian desserts commonly known as chimney cakes. These little beauties have crispy flaky outsides, soft bready insides, and are usually dusted with yum stuff like cinnamon sugar and pistachio crumb.
Kurtosh have reopened their doors so you can cozy up for a cake and donut date. Stock up on chimney cakes or sample Kurtosh’s other delicious pastries via takeaway, UberEats or Deliveroo.
What the world needs now is more fried, sugary bread. That’s why we’re thanking the sweet gods of dessert that Shortstop is serving their menu of gourmet donuts made fresh every day at their Darling Harbour store.
Their dining are has reopened, and you can still order from their online store for next day delivery. (Or jump on Ubereats if you want donuts ASAP.)
If, like us, you were gutted when you found out that Saga Lyte in Haymarket was closing, you’ll be happy to know they’re still serving takeaway at Saga in Enmore. That includes all their incredible pastries, from a brioche roll with bourbon butter and cream cheese icing, to cherry and coconut galettes.
Gelatissimo makes bellissimo gelato, fresh, in store every day. They’ve won a truckload of awards for their creamy, dreamy desserts including a bunch of gold medals for their Belgian chocolate and browny flavours.
Best of all, they have 500 ml and 1 litre take home tubs, takeaway or delivered on UberEats.
Chocolate lovers rejoice as your favourite place for thick hot chocolates has reopened at the perfect time - winter! Dine in and takeaway are available so get ready for your catch ups over a warm hot choccy and one of Guylian’s world-famous cakes and desserts.
