31 degrees and had read the reviews about this place so it was a no brainer. 2 scoops for 6,000 shillings. Hibiscus, cardamom, vanilla, chocolate, peanut.....plenty of flavours to choose from, from the traditional to the more ‘exotic’

This gelato is amazing - p[trobably the best in Zanzibar. The variety of flavours are out of this world. Who would have thought to try masala ice-cream? Or cardamom? Even avocado. This is s Bucket List MUST when in Stone Town

Good gelato, decent selection of flavors. They also make shakes and smoothies. The place has pizza and some other Italian fare, but can't speak to its quality. Good place to pick up a desert for take away as it's a little warm inside due to...More
