If you are wandering downtown in Charleston near the waterfront, Belgian Gelato is in the perfect location. Hubby and I like to eat lunch downtown, then wander around a bit. Then we get gelato and eat it at Waterfront Park. This afternoon, we both got the salted caramel gelato. He got a double scoop in a waffle cone. Mine was... More

Sure the gelato is amazing but the toasted sandwiches and soups are delicious! Perfect for a light lunch on the go and just great for our Aussie family of four. We bought our lunch here several times during our stay in Charleston. Service was always friendly at this very popular cafe.

I love gelato for its rich flavor and smooth consistency. However one needs to understand that the term "gelato" in Italian means "ice cream". Many establishments sell ice cream and command a higher price by calling it "gelato" even though it lacks the special qualities that make Italian gelato one of the best ice cream. Unfortunately, Belgium Gelato is one... More

After a nice evening walk, I stopped in for a quick dessert - Peppermint chocolate is my new favorite! This little shop is clean and the wait staff is friendly. Will stop by again!

We swung in here for dessert after lunch nearby. If you like chocolate this is the place to be. They only had something like 10-12 flavor options but 8-10 of them were chocolate! I had chocolate peanut butter and it was very good. Not truly Italian gelato but very good. My husband tried both the strawberry and the vanilla and... More

There are a lot places that have gelato in their names but when you taste them....it isn't gelato. Gelato is very smooth and creamy and this place did it right! Yummy!

Not quite European standard, but very close. The staff was very friendly (we went two nights in a row) and their flavor combinations were delicious. I stuck with the dark chocolate orange, which was amazing, while my companion tried the salted caramel and the orange peanut butter. Portions vs. prices were decent, and the single scoop serving is very generous.... More
