Description: Adelheidi's might make one think of a little girl climbing an Alpine mountain and picking flowers while visiting her grandfather's house. And yes, all frozen desserts are old-world handcrafted and entirely from scratch. But if you look closer you quickly find Adelheidi's wild and state-of-the-art side: Gelato, Fruit Ices and Frozen Yogurt come in such imaginative flavors as Strawberry-Basil, Chocolate-Lavender, Mango-Chili, White Rose and Cardamon, as well as timeless favorites Vanilla Bean, Strawberry and Peanut Butter. You'll taste the difference as the ingredients are ALL ORGANIC with NO TOXINS or ADDITIVES. Adelheidi's motto is well expressed in Oscar Wilde's quote "I'm a man of simple tastes. I'm always satisfied with the best."Frozen desserts: gelato, ice cream, frozen yogurt, fruit ice, sorbets, milkshakes, smoothies. Everything is made fresh daily on the premises on the basis of our proprietory recipies. What you can find is the best and cleanest taste that is possible or simply the best frozen desserts in the world.You can also enjoy all organic coffee. Add gelato and have an Afogato or Eiskaffee. We started January 15, 2011 with our shop on 5th Ave as we have not found what we wanted for us and especially for our kids. Everything we found was made with corn syrup, Aspartam, artificials, chemicals, toxins. As we were used to organic food we always struggled with a chemical and poor taste with whatever we had. On the other hand we only found retail ice cream or yogurt or products made in a convenient manner by using powder mixes and cheap chemical treats. From our point of view noone really took care for a good and responsible product. And it seemed that the customer did not care about ingredients. But that is not true. Customers do care and constantly come back to us. A nice compliment by a customer was that he returned to his former place once he had our treat and could not enjoy it as he now could taste all the chemicals which are contained. Once hooked there is no way back. If you know how natural and furthermore and especially organic taste like there is no return to less than the best. We have seen developments of places who offer raw food which claim that you can detox with their products. But we think how can you detox with a conventional product that contains chemicals. That is like trying to stop smoking by smoking cigarettes. It does not make sense. Either you have organic products or you should not advertise with detox. Our philosophy includes that food should not contain chemicals at all and should not damage the body. But purity alone cannot carry an every way of life. That is way we put on top of everything the taste. On the basis of all health goals, purity and benefits you get there must be the best taste possible in the center. We have seen the green movement in Germany at the very start as a finger was rised and it was underlined with: but it is good for you that is why you have to eat it. It tasted awful but was the best? No. We do not think so. It might be harder and you have to change and adapt any recipe you find on the basis of new goals and new ingredients. But it is definitely worth it. Clean and pure food, free of chemicals, additives and toxins taste better and with the right cook who knows what she is doing you can have a Gourmet item or simply fine food. We call it fine organics and we think that describes best what we are doing.

“Frozen perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

This is a must while you're in Naples. Unusual flavors and organic ingredients make any other frozen confection pale in comparison. During the day the owners are there and can definitively speak to ingredients and how their yogurts and gelatos are made. Flavors this visit included: Saltflower Caramel, lime-mint, Bavarian cream, Rum cherry chocolate, strawberry-basil, blueberry and I can't remember anymore but there were about 20 altogether. They had me at Saltflower Caramel. They had me at Saltflower Caramel.

“Real italian coffee blend and delicious ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

Adelheidi's surpriced US nicely by serving excellent italian coffee and delicious ice cream in uncommon flavours. Highly recommended for coffee lovers: premium italian coffee blend - not so common in the US.

“Great gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Love having gluten free options that taste Devine. The strawberry basil is my favorite gelato. Coffee done right.
Friendly service every time. Organic gluten-free options are available to people who need them. I am glad to have found this place. I wish for more gluten-free options to come. Thank you.
