Gelato to die for

You will not find better gelato then here. The friendly local setting provides the perfect destination after dinner or when walking the City at night. Breakfast is also delightful. All the food ingredients are from local farms. Enjoy

Escosgelato has been in Escondido for about 4 years now. It is a tiny little shop with a warm and friendly staff. They are always willing to give you a free sample so you can try something new every time and still order your favorite. They always have wide variety of flavors and the proprietress has a gift for combining... More

We have enjoyed gelato and sandwiches here a number of times, They hand make everything and the variety of gelato is always changing and fresh. They use local ingredients and prepare all the sandwiches to order. We have never been disappointed with anything we've ordered. The only down side is that the shop is very small with limited outside seating.... More

I love the gelato, sandwiches, and salads. It is nice to have the choice of 1/2 sandwich, salad and/or soup. Spicy Mayan Chocolate is our favorite gelato!

Quite possibly the greatest warmed sandwiches in north county. The dedo is by far my favorite. They also have a community air pump for those with bikes.

Wow, the gelato here is fantastic - we normally stop here every week for a treat. My favorite flavors are: Apricot Goat Cheese (I never would have thought this would be great, but it is my #1), Browned Butter Pecan, Sour Cream Brown Sugar, Hazelnut Chocolate, Candy Bar...they have many flavors and several of them are creative and unique. Don't... More

I loved the gelato here so much I came a total of 3 times within 10 days. Each visit featured different flavors, most of which appeared to be made from locally sourced ingredients when possible. The pistachio was some of the best I've ever had, and other standouts were the horchata and a chocolate/peanut butter blend. And the blueberry cheesecake... More

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
