“A sweet cup at Sweet Cup!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I was craving some gelato on a hot Houston evening. After a quick search we discovered this place was very nearby. What a stroke of luck: the gelato was excellent, the portions were generous, and the staff was friendly. An eclectic selection of flavors as well. I highly recommend for those in need of a quick gelato fix!

“tasty gelato selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Sweetcup Gelato was a great afternoon snack. They had 20 or so flavors to choose from including sorbets and custards too. Many were unique like dirty coconut (coconut with shaved chocolate), snickerdoodle and several chocolate variations including amaretto (delish!) The espresso wa also top notch.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Tucked in a strip mall, this shop, which opened in 2012 has absolutely delicious gelato. The flavors are unique (beets and honey! Vampire's Delight [garlic!]), tiny tastings are given and each one was delicious. The salted caramel is wonderful, especially when mixed with Vampire's Delight and chocolate. The husband had the Elvis (banana, bacon and peanut butter) and the avocado sweet basil - he was impressed.

We would definitely return again!

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Get the salted caramel or the chocolate amaretto. It's all made fresh and is a tasty ice cream alternative.

“Great Gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Great Gelato

We had great gelato and coffee at the Sweet Cup. Dark Chocolate, Salty Caramel, and various fruit flavors were all delicious. All was reasonably priced. The service was fast and friendly. I would recommend the Sweet Cup for a delicious diversion.
