Stopped here on a walk home and had the Biscotti flavored gelato -- it was amazing. I'm still dreaming about it. A great sweet treat. Service was friendly.

Caffe Prada has been one of our favorite places to grab a sweet treat when that particular mood strikes ever since they opened 4 or 5 years ago. We never experienced some of the "rude and terrible service" mentioned in some of the negative reviews, always receiving friendly encounters. However, ownership has recently changed so for any of you put off by some of the old reviews, please reconsider. Jim and Dana are great couple and their daughter(s) are also starting to work the shop. We always can count on good conversation.

The gelato is simply the best in town and we normally prefer it to ice cream or custard. Prada has recently started serving lunch, sandwiches and chips and sweet treats they are having catered in. They don't have a full kitchen here but no worries. They are having these items prepared by local eateries and they are quite tasty.

The Friday evening wine tastings are really nice. Always an interesting selection and they are generous with the pour. Jim is also a musician and normally has a buddy or two with him to play some jazz or blues or whatever. Very nice to go hang out, sip some wine and get your weekend off to a good start.

Caffe Prada is an asset to downtown Winston Salem and I encourage you to pay a visit.

We loved it! I am obsessed with gelato and since visiting Italy recently I was sad thinking there weren't any gelato shops around. After a quick google search I found Caffe Prada. We stopped by hoping to revisit our Italian vacation. Mr Traveler was slightly disappointed finding out there was no pistachio available but quickly recanted those feelings after taste testing a few other delightful flavors. He decided on the Biscoff Cookie which tasted just like a Teddy Graham! I had the Creamy Caramel Bacon with the Salted Caramel. Both were delicious. The Creamy Caramel Bacon actually had real bacon bits in it. If you're a bacon lover you need to try this! We also had some coffee (unlimited refills). It was a very nice hang out spot. TV, WiFi and sweet treats! What more do you need from a coffee shop/gelato shop!! We will be back!!

Wonderful gelato! Awesome selection of flavors!

It's at the bottom of a condo building, so the drawback is finding parking. You only have street parking, but can find a place if you drive around the block to look for one.

Hubby and I had peanut butter cup & our daughter had snickerdoodle. They also have pastries, which were of enormous size. One pastry can easily be shared by 2 people.

If in the downtown area, definitely stop by & try some gelato!

This is a stylish cafe that serves excellent beverages and has a very good selection of gelato. The interior design is attractive and contemporary. There are plenty of nooks in which to retreat with your laptop and also tables to enjoy with friends. The outdoor seating is also a plus.
