Awesome

The cold brew iced coffee was strong and not bitter. Very robust. Very cute place with excellent gelato done very artistically. Loved this place. Even the restroom was an experience!

We were in Coronado during the summer and there was a very long line for this place (which is a good sign). We were very short on time, so we didn't go there until this week. Most likely due to the Winter Season, there was not a long line, though they still had a steady stream of customers. We sampled... More

We were walking down Orange Avenue as we often do in Coronado, and I saw a few people enjoying gelato as they walked by. We decided to stop and so glad we did!! You can get a small amount and there are so many delicious flavors to choose from! (I always have a difficult time but usually pick the flavor... More

Great fruit and other choices (pistachio, chocolates, coffee, etc). Even with the small cup, you can request 1/2 of one flavor and 1/2 of another. Always fresh and you can choose lower cal sorbets vs gelatos.

Nado Gelato is the perfect place to get ice cream in Coronado. They have plenty of flavors to enjoy. I love how they are always swapping them out. I also like that they have a water dispenser accessible to all guests. The shop is quiet and rarely overcrowded. Although their ice cream is amazing, their smoothies and coffee are also... More

Stopped by for a dish of gelato on a hot October day. They were serving classic gelato flavors along with a few innovative and new ones. Very good!
