The gelato is an excellent addition to anyone's day! Or we picked it up to take home to add to our dessert. The Salted Carmel was awesome with a bit of dark chocolate. Yum!

It's difficult to find sugar free chocolate here in Vancouver, and was so very happy to find my Mom's favorite - sugar free chocolate covered ginger on Salt Spring Island. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Great gelato and super knowledgeable and friendly staff both times we visited. We had gelatos and the chocolate truffles, plus free candies our server had made that afternoon. Highly recommend this spot.

We had some chocolate, but not the gelato. Next time ! Love the variety of choices including some fun chocolate forms which make great gifts. Salted Caramel in dark chocolate satisfied my cravings for the time being. Nice relaxed staff as well.

They've been there since 1980 and are one of the most popular places to visit but for some reason they don't come up in your listings.
