Didn't disapoint!

After a nice lunch next door at Cody's my wife and I stopped in for a small dessert. The serve was very nice, let us try 4 different flavors before we decided on one. Tasted amazing. Must stop in if you are going to La Jolla beach.

Great selection of favors! All ingredients are fresh, organic and many are vegan or gluten free. The price is higher than most gelato places...but given their commitment to the best ingredients, it is worth it!

Visited here based on the great reviews and it certainly lived up to the hype!! Delicious and organic with no dyes...great portions with small cup offering 2 scoops of Gelato so you can try more than one flavor. Nothing bad at all to say. The place was clean and the staff was friendly and all smiles.

I had the delicious Pineapple Basil and Coconut Gelato. The two flavors went together really well and the coconut flavor was the best coconut I ever had anywhere. I liked that water was available. This gelato shop also has a view of the water from the patio.

We recently stay at the La Valencia down the street. We strolled by and stopped in. Glad we did. I had the KiBana kiwi banana gelato. Outstanding. Great location!

Stopped in to this lovely gelato place by the sea...it combines my two favorite things: gelato and the ocean...what's not to love?! The chocolate and the sea salt caramel are not to be missed.

Once you walk past this quaint little spot and sample the Gelato that they kindly hand out, you may find yourself circling or walking numerous blocks to go back and get some. My favorite was the kiwi banana dairy free. I was impressed with 5 options of different dairy free flavors. I got a medium and it was a good... More
