Flavours and options
Our flavours change with the season and the morning harvest, drop by or call us to see what we have today. And remember we ONLY make fresh and will sell out at times, but of course we are making a fresh batch in the morning.
500ML Pints available.
Gelato + Organic Milk
= Milkshakes in Kitsilano & Vancouver Convention Centre
Our modernized version of the classic milkshake will have you dreaming of the ice cream parlours of your childhood. Though better – our custom 12oz milkshakes are made-to-order and include 2 delectable scoops of gelato along with homemade whipped cream.
Or indulge in a vegan version with our famous Midnight Chocolate sorbetto with almond milk!
Affogato in Kitsilano
Warm up a cool afternoon or evening with one of our Italian inspired drinks. We now offer a selection of specialty coffees and other hot beverages at our flagship Kitsilano store. The pièce de résistance being Affogato (one scoop of our gelato and one-shot of espresso). Bellisima!
Uno Gelato our people & our ingredients
The Uno Gelato experience is built on two key pillars—our people, and our ingredients. The greatest people in the world cannot make great gelato without great ingredients.
Farm fresh, seasonal, locally grown, and organic are the hallmarks of our ingredients. Avalon Dairy, Krause Berry Farms and Vancouver Island Sea Salt are examples of the exquisite local suppliers we partner with to ensure the very best possible gelato outcomes. We are proud of these relationships and believe that they are a significant part of the experience that you expect from Uno Gelato.
The flavours we offer are bound only by the creative boundaries of our team, and the daily availability of the very best ingredients. Just because an ingredient is available doesn’t mean that it meets Uno Gelato standards. The daily menu is driven by the best ingredients available.
Our Maestro Gelatiere, Andrés Bermudez, is of Italian/Spanish descent and grew up hearing about gelato, though sadly never had the opportunity to taste it. (Where they lived in Colombia there was unfortunately no gelato only ice cream)! It wasn’t until he was a college student in Miami, that he had the chance to try his first delicious scoop.
He was blown away by the difference from ice cream and understood what his Italian bisnonna had been talking about — gelato’s incredible creaminess, richness of flavours and freshness is so markedly different from ice cream. From then on he was hooked and was fortunate to have a friend that owned 3 gelato stores in Miami. He mentored under their Italian trained Maestro and eventually took over. After finishing school he moved to Canada where it was a natural for him to search out a similar opportunity, first with Bella Gelateria and now fortunately for us. In the fall of 2020 he completed his Advanced Gelato certificate from the renowned Gelato University Carpigiani, in Bologna, Italy. At Uno Gelato, Andrés works closely with our team to handcraft gelato that makes his famiglia and us proud.
Helping us bring fresh products to you
In addition to sourcing local wherever possible, we limit our packaging use as much as is possible with a frozen, perishable product. In-store for sampling we offer metal spoons, and we supply biodegradable spoons for takeout.
For containers, customers have the option of a handmade waffle cone or bowl (made fresh from scratch, in-house upon ordering) or in a 100% recyclable paper cup container.
Our pint packaging is in 100% recyclable paper pint cartons that are coated with a plant based bio resin polyethylene – made from renewable sugarcane.
The paper itself is SFI custody chain certified from responsibly managed forests. (Unlike traditional ice cream cartons, which are made from non-recyclable polyethylene plastic based coated paper).
