So fresh!

Love this gelato! All of the fruit flavors are lactose free and are so refreshing! The other flavors are amazing as well! The owner is very personable and makes all of the gelato in house with fresh, local ingredients.

I had read all the great reviews about this place and was really disappointed when we gave it a try. They only had about 6 flavors and it tasted like ice cream not gelato. It is very pricey for ice cream. We were in Italy in March and there is no comparison. With that said, the Breyers gelato is more... More

I had had a bad day. Gelato with a friend at a sidewalk table was prescribed as the way to make it all better. When I saw that Pineapple was among the day's offerings, it seemed like perfection. After a taste, I remarked that if I closed my eyes I was sure I would feel tropical breezes and sand between... More

The first time I had gelato it was in the Piazza St. Marco in Venice. I have been passionate about the frozen dessert ever since. Finding a place here in my new home town that makes the best is a real blessing. Try the lemon basil if they have it. The pistachio sweeps me immediately back to Italy. Best sweet... More

Ciska's gelato is nothing short of amazing. Given a choice of dessert at a restaurant or at Cafe Gelato, Cafe Gelato wins every time. Great flavors: Butterscotch was incredible last night. Something unique every visit. If you want something special: ask. They'll text when they make it.

Anyone looking for a different treat to enjoy after a meal or just on it's own should visit Cafe Gelato in Winston-Salem. The gelatos are great with a few unique and delicious flavors along with some tasty standards. The atmosphere is charming, warm and fun. If gelato is not enough for you, there's also some sodas, coffee/espresso and even a... More

Super service and the best gelato in town. I had the Pineapple with the coconut and it was amazing. I can really recommend this place, it is a cute little café with nice and helpful employees. So wait no longer and get the best there is near you!

I've had gelato in Florence, Rome, Venice, and Budva in Montenegro but I like Cafe Gelato the best. Homemade, delicious, creamy, tons of flavor, etc. It's truly unbelievable we have this gem in this city! And the owner is a wonderful, wonderful woman. Sweet and easy to talk. She even let me off when I forgot my money, and I... More

My husband and I stopped here to try the gelato. It was very good. The texture was smooth and the flavor was rich. I was pleasantly surprised.
