Being European I have some comparisons under my belt and for an American place to be this good in Downtown Escondido is unexpected and excellent. Taste is a very personal thing and I think most people do not know what real food is suppossed to taste like anymore, well this is it as far as ice cream goes. Hope this... More

We stopped by here after reading reviews on EscoGelato and we had lunch and then a gelato. Our lunch was a Panini sandwich, which was excellent, salad, and ice tea. They were extremely friendly and helpful and came over to our table and poured us more ice tea. But the best part by far was the gelato! oh my goodness!... More

Prices are comparable to Baskin-Robbins but slightly better quality. I've never had "authentic" gelato from Italy, so I can't say how it compares but I really like it. It's Smith and creamy, denser than "American" ice cream

This is fine, but not real Gelato...still searching to find. The service is friendly and ice cream (gelato) is ok. A tad pricey...but it's the only ice-cream around so they should do ok.

This is a true hidden gem. I have been looking around for a perfect cappuccino (just like the way you get in Italy) and latte and finally came across this place. They make the perfect latte with art on it. If you are craving for something sweet, they have delicious gelato and Affogato. Finally a break from starbucks who do... More

Took the motorcycle out for a ride with a friend of mine and we decided to head inland...so went online and looked up coffeehouses in Escondido. EscoGelato received some nice reviews, so set the GPS destination and headed there. They have everything from coffee and homemade gelato to panini's and desserts. Located in the heart of Escondido on a nice... More

Homemade gelato with new flavors almost every day! The owner creates her own original flavor combos and is generous with both samples and servings. Sandwiches and salads are wonderful too! Limited space and menu, but the casual charm more than compensates. You'll love to treat yourself and share the discovery with your friends.

A little hard to find and still in need of some building cosmetics, the fine Italian gelato here is exceptional with a wide array of flavors, including some you may have never tried before.

FINALLY! A neat place for Gelato in North County. Very common in Italy and other countries, not so much here in Escondido. In fact, never any gelato worth returning for. This is a pleasant surprise. Thanks to other reviewer! Just figured out what to have for dinner...sandwich from EscoGelato! Wonderful selection and flavors. HInt Hint. Bring back Fleur de Sol........FAV.
