[SD Pacific Beach] Gelato Bus Stop

I usually come up with some sort of description in the post title, but today, I’m running low on creativity.  Oh well, the word “gelato” is probably good enough to catch your attention.

That’s right, gelato.  Mmm…

There were plenty of gelato places in Berkeley, my favorites being Gelateria Naia and Lush Gelato, both on Shattuck Ave. and a short walk from my home.  Ahh, how I miss that.

Since arriving in San Diego, I have kept a short list of dessert places to try, and Gelato Bus Stop has been my favorite so far.  Since trying it the first time a couple of months ago, SK and I have stopped by every time we eat in PB.

The first thing you see is actually the lineup of Nutella jars by the crepe-maker.  I like this place already.

The gelato case featured a mix of traditional and novelty flavors.  We tried the Galileo (Oreo cookies & vanilla lemon cream), Stracciatella (sweet cream & chocolate chunks), Columbus (Mascarpone, vanilla, & chocolate), Lazy Lemon (yogurt & crispy lemon paste), Tiramisu (self-explanatory, I hope), and Venetian Gondola (smooth caramel & light chocolate).

My favorites were the Galileo, Columbus, and Lazy Lemon – something about the lemon is just so good, the perfect blend of rich & creamy with fresh & fruity.  You could put 3 flavors into any sized cup (even small!) and is served with a crispy waffle cookie.

The bottom line?  Yum! :)

    Yay! I finally tried this place today!!!! We love it! I like how you can put three flavors for any size scoop. I like maximizing my opportunities to try different flavors. :)

      Yep! They are the only place I know that allows multiple flavors even in a small. Reminds me that I haven’t visited in a while! :D
