Winner of the San Diego Restaurant Association’s 2006 and 2007 Gold Medallion Award for “Best Dessert.” When you want truly delicious gelato, look no further than the award-winning Gelato Vero. Celebrating their 25th Anniversary, since 1984 they have been serving this delicious gelato, which is handcrafted, made on-site and has a smooth, creamy and dense texture.
There are 12 wonderful flavors, with the spumoni, pistachio and chocolate hazelnut being the most popular.
You can also get gelato shakes, malts, freezes and floats. This is also a coffehouse, in fact it’s the second oldest in San Diego. You’ll find great coffees, espresso, teas and Italian sodas. They are famous in San Diego for their Italian Coffees, which are hard to find elsewhere. Of course, there are plenty of tempting sweets and fine desserts to accompany your drink including coffee cakes, pastries, biscotti and bagels, even cheese- cake.
They even have free wireless Internet service. This coffeehouse and ice cream parlor is a bit cozy inside with only five tables, but the sidewalk patio and upstairs cottage seating make for great people watching.
