Attention Gelato Lovers
We're Joelato, a small gelateria that offers brilliantly tasting, handmade gelato.
Gelato isn’t just a fancy Italian word for ice cream. There is a difference, and it’s mostly in the balance of milk and cream. Ice cream usually contains a lot of cream and some milk, whereas gelato is mostly milk with a little cream. As a result, gelato tends to have a more intense flavour, silky texture and a lower fat content.
THE BEST INGREDIENTS
Our gelato and sorbets are made from the best ingredients we can find, and we never ever use any artificial flavouring or colouring. we work hard to create the very best gelato we can, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. That includes our milk, cream, eggs and berries.
MADE BY HAND
We are obsessed with the quality of our gelato, which is why we make everything ourselves, from scratch. That includes our salted caramel, honeycomb, sauces, and all our syrups which we infuse with herbs grown in our garden. As we are constantly developing new flavours, it helps when we can experiment with literally anything.
After many years of dreaming and working extremely hard, we're proud to have finally opened our first Gelateria in the heart of Edinburgh. Located in Stockbridge, we're serving up our most loved flavours, epic milkshakes, homemade hot chocolates and beautiful coffee using beans from GlenLyon Coffee in Aberfeldy.
Pop in and visit us and be sure to pick up some extra tubs to take home with you so that you're never without delicious gelato.
Our gelato and sorbet are made from the best ingredients we can find, and we never ever use any artificial flavouring or colouring. After all, how are you meant to make the best gelato, without the best ingredients?
Wherever possible, we source our ingredients from local producers. Our milk and cream is delivered to us by Perthshire dairies. All of our strawberries, raspberries, black currants and blackberries are grown in Perthshire fruit farms, and our cousin’s farm near Carnoustie.
We are constantly developing new flavours and the list below is just a sample of what we offer. Please take a look at our Facebook and Instagram
pages to see our very latest flavours.
DO YOU OFFER HOME DELIVERY?
We sadly no longer offer regular home delivery.
CAN I COLLECT GELATO IN STORE?
Yes! Whilst we don't yet have an option to 'click and collect', you can easily come into either our new Stockbridge store or Bonnie & Wild stall to purchase larger tubs of gelato + sorbets for you to enjoy at home. All 'takeaway' orders will be boxed in thermal tubs that ensure your special gelato doesn't melt on the way home (but make sure it gets to a freezer as fast as it can). We'll be introducing a click & collect option once we're more settled into our new shop, allowing you to directly order select flavours online for direct collection from our Stockbridge location.
DO YOU OFFER VEGAN AND DAIRY FREE FLAVOURS?
Yes, you will always find art least two vegan sorbets. We tend to offer a fruit based seasonal sorbet alongside our very popular chocolate sea salt sorbet. (You wouldn't believe it is dairy free!) Our fruit sorbet is only ever made from fresh whole fruit.
