What is Gelato?
Gelato is most commonly associated with ice cream, but there are three very important differences between the two.
Ice cream generally contains 30-40% butter fat, whereas Gelato has 7% fat, making it much healthier with fewer calories.
Ice cream can contain up to 70% air while Gelato has less than 15% air, which makes it much denser and gives it a more concentrated flavor.
Gelato is served 15 degrees warmer than ice cream, giving it a smooth creamy consistency and does not freeze your taste buds so you can taste more of the flavor.
Our flavors Change daily, and are always seasonal. We have created hundreds of recipes, and make new ones every year.
Some of our regular Flavors Include:
Tahitian Vanilla Bean
Made from the best fair trade vanilla beans in the world, from Tahiti.
Old Fashioned Chocolate
Made with a blend of Belgian chocolates, smooth, rich and milky the way chocolate should be.
K Bay Dream Blend Espresso
Made with locally roasted organic fair trade espresso from K Bay Roasting Co. 'Where the Bean Meets the Dream' Kbay's house Espresso Dream Blend is the perfect blend for the best Espresso Gelato.
Salted Caramel With Alaskan Sea Salt
Dulce de leche slow cooked for five days to ensure maximum flavor. Enhanced with Alaska Salt Co. Homer Spit Salt harvested right out of our very own Kachemak Bay. A fan favorite that pairs well with anything.
Pistachio or Hazelnut
We roast our own organic pistachios and hazelnuts in house to make our own paste before combining with Homer Spit Salt. We are the only Gelateria in Alaska and one of the few in the Country to do so.
Wild Alaskan Rose With Local Honey
A local favorite, made from wild rose pedals foraged from the Homer hillside. We add local wildflower honey to make a truly one of a kind flavor. The flavor is out of this world, and you will not find it anywhere else in the world. We only get to make this a few times a year, so get it while it's here!
