“Vegan sorbets and exquisite gelato”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Kaffe Eis is supposed to be nice, but I wouldn't know because their sorbet is not vegan. However, this fantastic little local company makes several varieties of delicious sorbet, all of which are vegan, as are their waffle cones. Miss Eight thinks she has died and gone to heaven when she comes here. They are cheaper than Movenpick, too. Sorbet flavours could be watermelon, strawberry, pomegranate, blueberry, lemon, Hardy's ginger beer or lemon/lime but they change often, just like the gelato. My non-vegan friend always asks to try the new flavours but invariably gets the dark chocolate gelato, so it must be fabtastic (he says it is). All the staff are friendly and helpful, and once we had a long chat with the owner, who is clearly very enthusiastic about his products. I can't wait for the gelato made with coconut or rice milk. You can suggest flavours, order tubs for special occasions etc, or simply buy a cone or a cup. They also do drinks and some other eats as well. Sorbet or gelato in a cone, a wander by the sea in the sun...a perfect treat.
