Thank you for the lovely review! We are so glad that you were able to recognize that our pistachio and all our gelato is 100% natural with no food coloring or artificial ingredients. When pistachio gelato or ice cream is a very green color that is a tell tale sign that food coloring is used. Our pistachio gelato is somewhat... More

We have been to Belgian Gelato many times while in Charleston. As a matter of fact, if there is gelso somewhere we will be there for the tasty treat! We actually tried one of the grilled ham and cheese sandwiches and it was quite good. It was also very inexpensive. Counter staff is always very friendly and food comes out... More

We stopped in for hot chocolate and it was great. We plan on going back for the desert waffles as they looked really good as well.

Sara just served me a cup of freshly made pistachio gelato. I could not believe that any gelato could taste like this. This was so creamy and the flavor was the purest, perfect pistachio I have had in any dessert. You have to check this place out. It's a good thing I am leaving Sunday because I would be coming...

We are happy our pistachio gelato spoke for itself as far as flavor, purity and freshness go. We have our own family recipes and the gelato is made fresh in the store each morning. Thank you for the great review :-D Hope to see you again. More

Loved the flavors offered. Quick & friendly service. Good location near the park where we strolled while enjoying gelato. Near where some hotels do shuttle drops as well.

This cute place was right across from our hotel in Charleston. A little pricey, but worth it if you are craving gelato! Good customer service. I recommend the chocolate hazelnut!

Loved this place with Dutch Belgian owners. Gelato was fabulous. Recommend anything with chocolate and praline or hazelnuts. Simply divine.

Stopped in at the Belgian Gelato while we were in Charleston in October. The coffee and other drinks were great. We took them to the waterfront to swing on one of the swings there. The staff is great. They were raising money for university. Keep up the good work guys.

I was on my way to Waterfront Park to take a couple of photos for a friend. I stpped in with my bored daughter as I had promised here a hot chocolate. The hot chocolates were there, of course, along with a variety of gelatos, coffees, etc. One of the items that I didn't know about was a "Toasti", which... More
