I find myself finding reasons to go downtown just so I can get my fix at Gelato Vero Caffe. Excellent fresh gelato, great coffee and pastries and baklava to die for. Highly recommended. Also this fun part of San Diego is quite eclectic and fun for a walk. Many great foodie opportunities nearby!

Yummy waffle cone filled with 3 (although they offer 4) DIFFERENT flavors of gelato inside! Yum! Great, interesting flavors. Beautiful presentation in the freezer where the gelatos are housed in their bins with swirled, sculpted designs. Just so appetizing! Stroll outdoors with your concoction on the beautiful shopping area with plenty of comfortable places to sit and a very cosmopolitan,... More

This little place on India St. near the airport makes a great stop for a coffee. Neither my colleague nor I tried any of the Gelato treats though they certainly looked good as well. But our visit was earmarked for coffee and it was well worth it. The service was fine and the prices were quite fair as our bill... More

Nice place. Friendly staff. Let you try samples. Delicious ice cream. Not much seating but we went back to our car. A bit expensive but good

Coffee one day and gelato the next. Didn't really have enough time to really experience this place, but from what I saw and tasted, this place is the bomb. Great coffee and extra smooth ice cream.

The gelato is just average for the price. The service is helpful. There are outdoor tables. The location is in a nice neighborhood. Street parking is there if available.

Bigger than it looks (the cafe' that is), but tight counter area. Great coffee, gelato, and pastries if there are any left. Americano & raspberry gelato! Right across the street fro Lucha Libre for dessert.

Great shop with wonderful display of macaroons, carrot cake, tiramisu, etc... Going back tomorrow for the cannelloni. The chocolate gelato was wonderful.

I allow myself one dessert a week. Usually. Sometimes, such as during the holidays, that goes out the window in favor of a bit more indulgence. Knowing that I can, if I want, have a great dessert once a week means I easily say no to other foolish eating habits. Ok, so when I want to indulge, I go to... More
