Want crepes or gelato? Look no further.

We ate dinner at Chocolat this early evening. Whether you are looking for sweet or savory, this casual eats dinner is perfect.

We were in San Diego on vacation for three nights. And we went here for dessert each night. The gelato was fantastic. Between the two of us, we had: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mango, pistachio, cookies and cream, nutella cream, and chocolate hazelnut (we like chocolate). We sampled others, too. They were all great. A fantastic find to satisfy your... More

My family stopped here for breakfast while in San Diego. We ordered spinach and ham eggs benedict, tiramisu pancakes, and strawberry Nutella crepes. Our meals were all very good and the portions were generous. We didn't get to try the gelato while we were there, but it looked very good. A great place for breakfast.

As a rule I find gelato to be grossly overpriced. Not here. This place serves large portions in the 3 scoop large and boy is it ever good. Located in the trendy Gas Light district.

The gelato here is outstanding. We stopped here after dinner and Nobu while heading back to our hotel and it was the perfect way to finish a beautiful day in southern California. Between the 3 of us, we tried 6 flavours on day one and then 4 more on day two lol. Each one of them as good as the... More

I stopped here for a coffee and ended up purchasing a Gelato. I had two different flavours and it was really nice. I would recommend to do this as something different.

How to choose? So many lovely flavors of dark chocolate - usually there is only one, possibly two to pick from! Loved the dark chocolate, hubby loved the dark chocolate rum....Helpful staff too!

Beautiful display of the gelatos and sorbets - and they were soooo delicious. They let you taste flavors and you can order more than one flavor per cup! It was a cute place in the Gaslamp area and the menu looked really good too. Perfect ending to a great evening!

I had a dark chocolate and chilli gelato at this great café, which was delicious, hubby had a pistachio, which I have to say was the best I have ever had. Wish we had more time to go back as the café looked really good.

This cozy place offers much more than just ice cream. However, we only tried the gelato: one of us had dark chocolate and the other had coffee flavored. We both agreed that the gelato was indeed very good. The dark chocolate in my opinion was a bit too sweet.
