This is the real deal!

I lived in Florence, Italy for almost 3 years and tried out some of the world's best gelato in that beautiful country. But I can tell you that EscoGelato would hold their own in downtown Florence. I would still go there!

Neat little place on a quite street. Inside has a homey feel. The adventure is the gelato, yummy and home made. Lots of flavors and there may be a bad one but I have had any that were not delightful. Good place to take children or grandchildren.

This is a wonderful "find" in Escondido. Their gelato is super with a variety of original flavors which vary from time to time. The expresso is a perfect compliment. They also offer a small menu or sandwiches and soups which meet the same exacting standards. Out for a drive? It's worth an excursion for the special treats you'll find here.

I discovered Escogelato about a year ago. I have been there alone, with my couple, friend and family. My kids love their gelato and they always want to come back, what can I say so do I

In the hotter months we go here for gelato. Now that the weather has cooled we have been stopping in for coffee. They now have a lavender infused latte that is to die for. Beyond delicious! My mom doesn't even like coffee but she drinks this! Service is quick and staff is friendly. It's also a cycling friendly place... you... More

EscoGelato is a casual cafe in the heart of downtown Escondido. They always have a great variety of flavors (my favorite being Mayan chocolate when it's available) and the service is warm and personal. Their food is good too. It's a wonderful place to stop for a quick bite or cool treat on a hot day. I highly recommend it... More

A bit pricey but so worth it. They offer unusual flavors of ice cream. It's always a treat to stop by EscoGelato.

We were pleasantly surprised to discover this place. We had recently traveled to Italy and have been on the lookout for gelato that would rival the treats found in Italy. We found it here at Escogelato. They also have a few lunch items available such as paninis.
