About Café Dolce Gelato

Who we are

Cafe Dolce Gelato is a local family owned Italian Cafe located In Houston Galleria. Our family background and cultural influences are primarily Italian and our new generation has increased our family adding diverse roots from Asia to Mesopotamia. Food from around the world has been inspiration in creating our recipes. We are extremely passionate about food and believe very strongly in using only natural and authentic ingredients. We traveled to Bronte, Sicily, to the fertile volcanic area where the pistachio trees are world renowned to source the purest pistachio known to man just to serve in our store. Introducing the public to unique items like pistachio pesto, which is found on panini, pizza, crepes, etc in Sicily makes it all worth it for us. Spreading and contributing to the real food movement is what we are all about.

Our Gelato

Our Gelato is made completely from scratch at our store using only Milk, Cream, and Sugars. We never use any commercial mixes or powdered bases like commercial Gelato, Ice Cream or Yogurt shops. We don't take shortcuts on our products, our homemade base takes a full day to make.

"Artisan Gelato is our specialty ... we never use high fructose corn syrup, artificial preservatives, or artificial flavoring ... We use real sugar. Our milk and dairy products are rBGH free, and we use local and organic produce."

Just like with our food, our gelato is always all natural and is made fresh in small batches, the old fashioned way. All our sorbetto is made with real fruit, no powdered "just add water" franchise shortcuts here. Each tray is still hand made one at a time. The difference is very noticeable.
