The Gelato Vero brand of gelatos and sorbettos was established by Henry Rabinowitz in San Diego in 1984. We use only the freshest ingredients in our base mix and only the finest nuts, fruits, chocolates and extracts for our gelatos and sorbets.
Gelato is the ice cream of Italy: smooth, creamy, and dense because there is no air whipped into it. Gelato Vero Italian Ice Creams are created with an artisan’s approach—using secret recipes that are low in sugar to ensure that the flavors of its fresh, premium ingredients are tasted in all of their natural beauty. One delicious taste tells why Gelato Vero Italian ice Creams have gained national recognition.
Gelato Vero Caffé has been an gathering place and cultural hub in San Diego for the last 30 years. Our talented baristas serve organic locally-roasted coffee and espresso from Caffé Calabria and fine loose teas from Cafe Moto.
Gelato Vero is famous for our version of traditional Indian chai tea made in-house with certified organic spices and fair trade teas and for our gelato based espresso drinks like the Verocinno Frosty and Espresso con Gelato.
We offer a variety of fresh baked goods and decadent deserts to accompany our gelato and coffee such as house-made mexican chocolate biscotti as well as buttery croissants and rich lava cake.
After two wonderful years, Gelato Vero Caffe is no longer serving brunch upstairs. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please stay tuned for gelato tasting events, pop-up dinners and vegan cooking classes in the near future.
