Don Gelato ice cream parlour, coffee shop & trattoria

23 Queen Victoria Street Stanford Overberg South Africa

DON GELATO  is inspired by the deep desire to share the flavours and naturalness of authentic Italian gelato. To make our delicious gelato we use the original technique and authentic recipe.

Don Gelato supports local farmers and offers the delightful taste of each season made by selected organic ingredients supplied by the Overberg region .

“Ice cream”  is an enjoyable modern-day commercial version and is mass-produced worldwide. “Gelato”  is homemade and follows the delicious original age-old Italian recipe and technique. The name has remained Italian due to its origin : GELATO

At the time all the ingredients were fresh, natural, organic : milk from freely roaming cows, fresh eggs from free-range chickens, fresh products and freshly harvested fruit which were obviously all free of pesticides, chemical treatments and preservatives that did not exist when gelato was first made! Today Don Gelato apply the same concept  in its production at The House of Don Gelato  in the Heritage Stanford Village .

Gelato contains no artificial flavourings or colorants, and no air is added to our low-fat natural ingredients .
All our gelato is made right in front of your eyes in The House of Don Gelato at 23 Queen Victoria Street in Stanford.
Don Gelato is a registered trade mark of Delitaly Pty (Ltd.)

Gelato is a wonderfully refreshing dessert, which is well known for its nutritious properties as a substitute for any meal because it contains all the necessary protein, carbohydrates, minerals and salts .
