“Amazing and Authentic!!!”
Review of Mio Gelato

Mio Gelato
Ranked #1 of 18 Dessert in Kingston
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Italian

Dining options: Late Night
Description: Whenever available, we use local fruit to give our specialty sorbettos the wonderful depth of flavour that you have grown to love. You've got it; we are all about local! So... what's the difference? A quick tutorial: Gelato is milk based, so less butterfat than ice cream. It also has less air, which makes the flavour really pop! Sorbetto is water based, so packed with taste, also great for those who want to go dairy free. Ice cream has cream in it to give it that rich, velvety flavour. Our popular frozen yogurt is the best tasting around because the two main ingredients are milk and yogurt. Now you know!

The gelato is fresh and delicious, every bit as good as in Italy! There's quite a variety of fresh and fruity gelato using in-season Ontario fruits, decadent chocolate variations, nutty flavours and more. My favourites were the pistachio and the strawberry.
The servers were fast and friendly, handing out little spoonfuls to taste and making suggestions. You can't sit inside but this delightful shop is in one of the historic buildings right downtown across from the visitor centre and park with seating and shade trees. We loved it and if we were staying in Kingston longer would probably have gone back daily going through every flavour...yum!

There is no reason to settle if you are looking for a cool treat in around the downtown Kingston area. Mia Gelato offers gelato, sorbetto, frozen yogurt and ice cream. For a small, it's 4.29$ and the home-made waffle cone is included. You can include two different flavors! And they let you try any of them before committing. At times this place is really busy - even then I find the staff manage to find you and make sure you're with treat. You can be assertive or laid back, depending on your urgency. Gummies for free! Oh yeah, I usually go after 10 pm... when I start to get cravings. I love that it's open at that time.

We had Mio Gelato for dessert. It was amazing. My sister had gelato in Italy every day and she said it was just like the stuff they made there. Huge selection of flavours, and every cone is home made as well. Ice cream, sorbet, gelato - there's something for everyone! The smallest size was still really nice and large. Prices were reasonable considering it's made in-store, and you get a lot for the price. Compared to other ice cream places, it might be considered a little steep... But not by me! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and invited us to test flavours if we weren't sure. The location itself is small, I hope in the future they can expand to have a patio or some additional seating.

Don't miss this stop in Kingston!
