My family loves going to Cold Spoons!! If you have a dairy issue, the sorbeto is a must... if you like to indulge, the gelato flavors are unbelievable! Tuesdays are a great day for a bargain!

We stopped here during a Milwaukee Pizza Bus Tour. It was the perfect ending to our pizza-tasting escapade. The gelato servings are generous and the flavors are amazing. We were told all flavors are handmade - no goos or artificial flavors. My favorite was the almond, but I also enjoyed the caramel.

The hand made gelato reminds us of our travels throughout Italy! AWESOME!! We backpacked from Rome through Venice with a few stops (via local train) between and LOVE the gelato at Cold Spoons as much as at any place in Italy!

This is FANTASTIC gelato that mirrors gelato available throughout Itally! The owners / operators greet you with a smile and choose to both work & live in the area. they have state of the art displays / coolers and a cool modern vibe throughout. The gelato is so authentic (good) that its served at all the Bartolotta Restaurants. ENJOY!!!

In my book, hard to beat a good dish of gelato. Cold Spoons has a decent variety of flavors to pick from. Even better, the young lady who helped us was super friendly, even tough we slipped in just shy of closing time. We'll definitely be back.

We have been here a number of times over the past year and always like what we get. I love gelato and while there are a number of great gelato places 20-30 minutes away in the suburbs, I think Cold Spoons has the best gelato right in the city of Milwaukee area. They have a good variety of flavors -... More
