Best Italian Gelato in Cary North Carolina

For the ultimate Gelato experience try Henry's Gelato in Cary at the intersection of Cary Parkway and James Jackson Rd. in Preston Walk.
The gelato is fantastic, the lemon and chocolate are to die for. Some of the unique flavors they make are cantaloupe and pink grapefruit and some traditional flavors Bacio (chocolate/hazelnut), tiramisu and espreso.Try it the staff is extremely friendly and best of all they give free samples.

  1. I know the intersection you're talking about. Can you tell me what it's next to? Is it in the Panera Strip?

    That sounds great - and it is near my work. Thanks for sharing!

      It's located in that same strip next to Panera and a hair salon called Gemelli.

      They opened on Wednesday. The staff encourages free samples before ordering.

      Hope you like it.

        That explains why I haven't seen it yet. That's excellent news. Thanks again!

    2. thanks for the tip. I will try this out soon.

      1. Henry's is FANTASTIC. We've been several times since they've opened and it's awesome. They're also opening in Southern Pines in about 4 months and Henry says that he's thinking about taking space in the new North Hills development that they're going to start working on next year.

        1. This is great news, particularly the possibility of a North Hills location, considering the recent closing of Silvia's gelato shop on Hillsborough St. in Raleigh. She still sells her gelato at Conti's Italian Market but the location and hours there make it difficult to pick up. It's especially tough on us because we were always able to bribe our kids to try new things and be well behaved at Porters by promissing to stop by for gelato afterwards. We look forward to trying Henry's.
