I grew to love gelato when I was stationed overseas in Germany many years ago. The Italian ice cream shops sold gelato and it was always richer and bigger flavor than the good old American ice cream we grew up on. So when I saw...a place locally selling gelato, I knew the gf and I had to visit. Located downtown, this place is perfectly situated near many restaurants and lots of foot traffic passing by. We had a light lunch to save room for dessert and then wandered over to Kiwi for some gelato. They have a relatively limited selection but I see that as a good thing. We tasted several different flavors and ultimately loved the chocolate, caramel, and raspberry. The cappuccino was very mild in flavor. The girlfriend likened it to La Croix water where you taste it but someone is whispering in your ear "It tastes like.....". As with most places now, there was no seating available indoors. We would have found a bench nearby but it had started raining pretty good by that point and we simply stood under the overhang and ate our gelato. Despite the rain and lack of seating, the experience was good. The staff was pleasant and accommodating and the food delicious. We're definitely stopping by again in the future.More

Incredible gelato and some amazing flavors. We fell in love with gelato while in Italy. This place does a fantastic job of creating the real deal. We go there often and have never been disappointed with any of the delicious flavors. When family or friends...come to town, it is a go to!More

Well prepared sweets. I had a cup of coffee that was just plane excellent. Perfectly prepared. The gelato is every bit as good if not better than you will get anywhere. A real treat. We bring our grandkids and family here often.

Counter service and ice cream parlor setting in downtown Brevard. Everything is made on the premises and local seasonal fruits are used. It should be noted that in the summer, Kiwi Gelato has a stall at the Brevard Music Festival concerts; the selection of ices...is smaller but the quality and reasonable price are the same.More

We tried a “small” cup of the pumpkin gelato & apple cider gelato and chocolate mint & salted caramel. All 4 flavors were delicious. It was a “small” cup, but it had big scoops of gelato. A friend had the hot chocolate, which was also...a favorite.More

Best Gelato I've had yet. Cute little place, the owner is super friendly, as is everyone else we've encountered.

Simply delicious gelato! This is a must-stop if you’re in downtown Brevard. Their gelato is even featured on some local dessert menus. Pistachio is my favorite, but I’ve loved all flavors that I’ve tried. Yum!
