“Great gelato!!”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

Great choice of flavors - not just the typical chocolate and vanilla but passion fruit, coconut, after eight and black Doris plum to name a few. Generous serving size at a reasonable price. After our first visit, it became a daily afternoon break.

“Cones are rancid”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

I ate at all the Kaffe Eis places (Cuba st, Courtney place and Frank Kitts) over the summer numerous times as we spent all summer in Wellington.
Each time the gelato was delish but I noticed the cones always had a rancid taste. Every single time.

My sister came to stay and we got a gelato from Cuba St. I told her that I thought the cone had a rancid taste & as a super taster she noticed it straight away & couldn't finish her cone.
All I can think is that the cones are left out, oils are oxidised giving it the rancid taste, possibly exacerbated in the warm weather?
I mentioned it to the staff in Courtney place in February.
Many people probably don't even know that rancid taste so fail to notice it or just think it tastes a bit strange but for me it has been very obvious each time.

“Superb gelato”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Amazing gelato! I wasn't fully with it when ordering- I'd recommend getting the kids size if you're not super hungry. I ordered the small in a cone and it was huge. I know for next time. I went to the location by the boathouse. It as lovely to watch the rowers (burning calories) while I gobbled down some delicious gelato. Holiday calories don't count, right?

“Surprising good Gelato”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We didn't know what to expect but decided to get an ice cream after a hot day in the sun by following a huge crowd into Kaffe Eis.

The Gelato were very tasty and loads of unusual but great flavours on offer. We had Fijoa and the Mango and Fijoa was the best ever!! Highly recommended to try this plaace when you are walking along Oriental Bay.
