We stop at Kaffee Eis for a gelato on a regular basis. The staff are incredibly friendly and always helpful. I am a terrible decision maker and the staff are always helpful when I ask them to recommend flavors, and always offer a taste test of a few flavors. The gelato is always delicious and there is an ever changing... More

A local recommended that we stop for a bite here. Situated on the wharf it has a great view of the harbor with delicious gelato, coffee and treats. The staff was very friendly and engaging, making for a delightful little stop.

Large and interesting range of gelato flavours. Ask for a tester spoonful so you can decide which one. May have to queue in summer!

If you are strolling on the waterfront on a warm summer day there is no better place to stop in and cool off. Wonderful range of flavours. The hardest thing is choosing.
