Description: Adelheidi's might make one think of a little girl climbing an Alpine mountain and picking flowers while visiting her grandfather's house. And yes, all frozen desserts are old-world handcrafted and entirely from scratch. But if you look closer you quickly find Adelheidi's wild and state-of-the-art side: Gelato, Fruit Ices and Frozen Yogurt come in such imaginative flavors as Strawberry-Basil, Chocolate-Lavender, Mango-Chili, White Rose and Cardamon, as well as timeless favorites Vanilla Bean, Strawberry and Peanut Butter. You'll taste the difference as the ingredients are ALL ORGANIC with NO TOXINS or ADDITIVES. Adelheidi's motto is well expressed in Oscar Wilde's quote "I'm a man of simple tastes. I'm always satisfied with the best."Frozen desserts: gelato, ice cream, frozen yogurt, fruit ice, sorbets, milkshakes, smoothies. Everything is made fresh daily on the premises on the basis of our proprietory recipies. What you can find is the best and cleanest taste that is possible or simply the best frozen desserts in the world.You can also enjoy all organic coffee. Add gelato and have an Afogato or Eiskaffee. We started January 15, 2011 with our shop on 5th Ave as we have not found what we wanted for us and especially for our kids. Everything we found was made with corn syrup, Aspartam, artificials, chemicals, toxins. As we were used to organic food we always struggled with a chemical and poor taste with whatever we had. On the other hand we only found retail ice cream or yogurt or products made in a convenient manner by using powder mixes and cheap chemical treats. From our point of view noone really took care for a good and responsible product. And it seemed that the customer did not care about ingredients. But that is not true. Customers do care and constantly come back to us. A nice compliment by a customer was that he returned to his former place once he had our treat and could not enjoy it as he now could taste all the chemicals which are contained. Once hooked there is no way back. If you know how natural and furthermore and especially organic taste like there is no return to less than the best. We have seen developments of places who offer raw food which claim that you can detox with their products. But we think how can you detox with a conventional product that contains chemicals. That is like trying to stop smoking by smoking cigarettes. It does not make sense. Either you have organic products or you should not advertise with detox. Our philosophy includes that food should not contain chemicals at all and should not damage the body. But purity alone cannot carry an every way of life. That is way we put on top of everything the taste. On the basis of all health goals, purity and benefits you get there must be the best taste possible in the center. We have seen the green movement in Germany at the very start as a finger was rised and it was underlined with: but it is good for you that is why you have to eat it. It tasted awful but was the best? No. We do not think so. It might be harder and you have to change and adapt any recipe you find on the basis of new goals and new ingredients. But it is definitely worth it. Clean and pure food, free of chemicals, additives and toxins taste better and with the right cook who knows what she is doing you can have a Gourmet item or simply fine food. We call it fine organics and we think that describes best what we are doing.

A really nice and well run little treat on the otherwise over rated 5th Avenue. The Ice Cream is a real treat and the scones really lovely. Well worth a visit.

Stopped in for a treat during a day trip to Naples. The name (and the word "organic") encouraged us, given all the other options along 5th Avenue! Adorable and well-maintained with cozy places to sit inside and out. We were greatly encouraged by the huge "TripAdvisor" Certificate of Excellence on the wall. Adelheidi's serves smoothies (think great juicing combinations, but... More

We enjoyed our affigato and sampled some pastries but do not expect more food choices than that. The coffee was very good and gelato flavors were interesting so may be more suited for adult tastes.

If you love good icecream, this is the perfect place in downtown Naples. Some unusual tastes i have never tried before. All very tasty. Nice area to sit outside to watch people passing by on fifth avenue, beautiful decoration inside. This is a place making you feel like a child again, we will come back whenever we return to Naples.

Absolutely adorable place. Such a refreshing experience! Had an affogado with a gelato flavor (caramel) an employee recommended. Heavenly. Staff answered our questions about gelatin free gummy candies (my kids were thrilled to find some). Great selection of smoothies- can't wait to go back and try one.

Ok, perhaps you are able to get some gelato or something sweet to satisfy your sweet tooth, but this place is anything but a restaurant. It is average at best with many more great shops along 5th Ave for ice cream, gelato, and sweets. Don't bother.

What a pretty little shop! We stopped for smoothies but left with a whole lot more! The smoothies were delicious and healthy and all organic. I ended up making my own gift basket up for a friend. I filled it with sea-salt caramel sauce, two different kinds of pizelles and organic jelly beans. They had lots of samples and the... More

Perfect consistency to the gelato. As suggested, the chocolate gelato was outstanding. Candy for sale was also very good quality! Excellent choice.

We went to Adelheidi's last night because of its #2 rating on Trip Advisor (out of 600+ restaurants) in Naples. I had the Belgian Chocolate and my husband Pistachio. We were disappointed. The gelato was good, but no where near worth that high of a rating. If organic is a must, maybe that is why it has such a high... More

We visited this shop after reading the rave reviews and cannot see why its so popular.Both my wife and I both had different flavor ice creams and we both thought they were OK but nothing special. We also had to wait quite sometime in line as the counter was only big enough for one person to serve. Much preferred Spin,... More
