I went here with some friends and we just arrived we received a big welcome smile from Christina. And we left with big smiles too. Everything was really delicious. The coffee was amazing (I tried both espresso and black coffee). The crepe was huge and delicious! All my friends were satisfied with their orders too. Christina said that they started... More

Our Intrepid guide. informed us about this place and stated that this is the best ice cream in town. Having sampled it, we agree. The strawberry and coffee ice cream are both delicious. Definitely worth trying if you are in town. Directly opposite the bus depot.... where the buses park when they arrive.

They have really good crepes here and the staff was really friendly. The coffee was really good just how I like and my girlfriend ordered the Chai tea which she loved. I'll be sure to visit this place again when I'm back in Puerto Viejo.

What a lovely spot with the MOST delicious gelato in Costa Rica. The people are sweet and thoughtful. YOU CAN"T LEAVE PUERTO VIEJO without visiting Deelite. Have breakfast then treat yourself to their MANY flavors of yummy-ness. Can't wait to go back!!

Don't go here for the breakfast- we left feeling ripped off and still hungry. The eggs and toast were lukewarm and underwhelming, and the pancakes were nice enough but really tiny. The waitress was really lovely but as the only staff there she was also the chef and in charge of the ice cream stand- too much for one person.... More

pato3, Owner at Gelateria Deelite Italian Gelato, responded to this review

We are so sorry for your less than great experience with the Cafe Bistro breakfast. The Gelateria Deelite opens at 12 noon. The Cafe Bistro which serves breakfast opens at 7am. At this time we are sharing the name and the space but are different owners. The young lady serving your breakfast would not have been in charge of the... More

This gelateria has a big range of delicious gelato with friendly staff and fun music. Don't miss it while in Puerto Viejo. We have been staying here for a while and Dee-lite is a bit of an addiction.

Description
We are the first Italian Gelato Shop in The Caribbean of Costa Rica for five years running. We have brought our traditional gelato recipes direct from Italy. We offer a large selection of delicious flavors( up to 20) made in house daily. In addition to the tropical and traditional flavors we also have non-dairy and vegan options. If you dont feel like a cold treat, try an espresso or cappuccino. We have created a chilled out Caribbean vibe! You will feel cool and relaxed listening to our selection of reggae music while sitting outside under a thatched roof with ocean view! We are located in the town center just across from the bus stop. We look forward to seeing you here! PURA VIDA!
