We always make time to visit and have gelato here. Samples are offered to help you decide on your flavor. Prices are average for gelato but the product is more than worth it. They have added a Dutch pancake to the menu which looked very...More

Love their chocolate hazelnut gelato! It has a more natural, real hazelnut taste—way better than Nutella! Their smallest cup/bowl size is actually a large portion. Their coffee selection is also pretty good. Cute, little shop right by the waterfront/pier. Great place to pick up dessert...More

Walked a couple of miles exploring beautiful Charleston, took pictures at the Pineapple fountain and came upon this place. You’ve gotta try it.

Gelato and sorbet were both great. Friendly staff. Right near the waterfront so terrific place to have some dessert and sit outside near the water.

Went for dessert after walking off a part of our dinner from earlier in the evening. Thought the gelato was good but not great. Wife and I had 3 flavors between us, chocolate, pistachio and salter caramel. The last was clearly the best.

I had an appetizer for dinner so that I could save room for dessert! We ended up at Belgian Gelato, located by the waterfront. I loved chocolate extreme, in a cone, and my husband loved chocolate hazelnut, in a cone. Perfect way to end our...More

Well, one of the places, anyway. The ice cream quality is good, and the location is perfect - close to the waterfront and park, and easily spotted because of the giant ice cream cone sign outside. It's a popular destination, with good reason. Ice creams...More

Stopped here for a quick snack. Everyone got gelato - flavors were good - caramel sea salt is recommended! Prices were a bit steep. There is limited seating but we found 4 chairs. Get a gelato and head for a walk in the park along...More
