Best Gelato in Norwich Always plenty of choice and their Pistachio gelato is the best I ever had outside of Italy.

Really lovely range if flavours, very pleasant cafe, modern and fresh in its fittings. Best cafe toilet I've seen in ages. A great find.

Only one customer is allowed in the shop at any one time. Good choice of gelato, we ended up with mango and salted caramel. My salted caramel was a little disappointing compared to others I've had, all one texture with no chunks or sauce. The...mango however was really good. A 5/5 for the mango A 3/5 for the salted caramelMore

Stunning flavours and good to see that the milk used is from local, named dairy. Covid secure currently and a pleasant shop.

Visited today. Got tiramsu and chocolate gelato in a medium sized cone. Was delicious. I've experienced some incredible gelato in Bologna, Italy and whilst the gelato at Cafe Gelato is not quite as good, it's certainly some of the best gelato I've had in the...UK. I certainly recommend cafe gelato and will be going back!More

This is my favourite place to come to in Norwich. The owners are so lovely and friendly and that resonates in their gelatos. The gelato is the best gelato/ice-cream I have ever eaten in my life even better than the gelato's I have had in...Italy. I didn't even think I was a sorbet person, but wow the Mango sorbet is something else! I can't believe how lucky we are to have these guys here making it in Norwich. Theres a reason theres always a large queue outside their shop. Overall you'd be silly not to come here if you are in Norwich!More

Summer is now here - and lockdown is starting to be lifted. I love their Gelato - my fav is fig & ricotta (one flavour together that works perfectly!), tiramisu and anything with cherry or mint. The Thai Kitty next door would make a very...good (spicy!) meal to start with - with this Gelato as the perfect pudding afterwards.More

Have visited quite a few times and there is always a beautiful selection of gelati. They often have interesting new flavours to try such as rhubarb, pomegranate, prosecco strawberry, and vegan/sorbet options too. Friendly family owners, and perfectly located so you can take out a...gelato and eat it next to the castle overlooking the city!More

Heard about this place from friends so decided to give it a try. Best gelato I have tasted outside the walls of Italy. Nice and creamy.

It's very small, but you can eat in or take away. The gelato flavours are the best. Today, I had mince pie flavour. They're all clearly home made and absolutely top quality. It's a family run operation; friendly and helpful. The coffee is also first...class.More

No. Only very good ice cream, coffee, and a small array of Italian "biscotti", bisquits.
