Best Gelato in Edmonton?
da capo (109th St. just south of the High Level Bridge) wins hands down in my book. Have had both fruit and non-fruit flavours and have been impressed every time.
The gelato at Famoso pizzeria is probably my 2nd place.
Bueno Gelato and Block 1912 are both good, but only serve huge scoops at correspondigly high prices.
Haven't tried the new place (Fantasia I think?) that has recently opened in Enterprise Square downtown yet.
Any other opinions or suggestions for other good gelato spots in the city?
yeah, i would say Leva and Famoso - i still haven't been to da capo, so i don't know. what about that one across from mountain equipment co-op? What does everyone think of that? I was there about a month ago and they only had four flavours, but it was cold out...i got a small vanilla bean flavour and it was good, but not as good as leva.
Fantasia used to have a stand at the Calgary Folk Fest and it was really good even with the challenges of operating out of doors and all that, so I was happy to find their gelato packaged at Calgary Co-op grocery stores, but the packaged version was very bad, and it's no longer sold here... that said, I would love to try their store next time I'm in Edmonton!
Hey my name is Averie and I work at Bueno Gelato
the gelato from Famoso is bought from us
we make it and they buy it from us
and not just Famoso we also sell our gelato to the Dish, Padmanadi and Violino
so there gelato cannot possibly be better than ours
and i shoudn't say this but we put more flavour in our gelato then the ones we sell to famoso and the other resaurants and ours is of course cheaper since we make it ourselves!
so they cannot possibly have better gelato than us!
im not lieing i work theyre come say hi to me! =]
My only complaint with Bueno is the serving size - you can't get anything less than a huge scoop and it's priced accordingly. The value is fine, but I'd rather have half the amount for half the price.
Secondly, they violate the worldwide gelato practice of allowing 2 flavours in a 'small' serving, 3 in a 'medium' serving, and 4 in a 'large'. At Bueno, if you want to sample 2 flavours you need to buy an enormous double scoop cone which costs like 7-8 bucks if I remember right.
