About Café Dolce Gelato

Who we are

Café Dolce Gelato is a family owned, family operated Italian Café and Gelateria in Galleria IV in Houston, Texas. Our process retains the authentic, handmade, traditional Italian recipes of our predecessors. We still use many products imported straight from Italy. Café Dolce Gelato features artisan Italian Gelato and a variety of fresh made salads, deli items, and specialty Italian coffee and desserts. We believe in fresh, healthy ingredients and a sustainable food process. We use organic produce, locally sourced as much as possible. Our all natural deli meats are sliced in house, and contain no steroids, hormones, or antibiotics. Our gelato is also all natural, made on site in small batches using hormone free milk with real flavorings, no artificial ingredients or pre mixed boxes. All of our sorbetto is made with only real fruit. Come spend a lunch or dinner with us, or come by for gelato and espresso. You will appreciate the difference in our fresh, natural food. Arrivederci!

Our Gelato

Artisan Gelato is our specialty. We have 24 daily flavors of gelato and sorbetto made in house. The different flavors are displayed in a unique, colorful, artisanal fashion, reminiscent of the streets of Italy. We make the gelato in small batches to ensure the freshest product.

Other Menu Items

Other menu favorites include our specialty Italian cappuccino and espresso, and our freshly baked items for breakfast and lunch, including tea loves, cakes and croissants. We buy only the best Lavazza beans, ground in house to ensure the freshest and highest quality brew possible.

We also feature fresh grilled Panini for lunch and dinner, using imported Parma prosciutto, salami, and cut fresh in house. Provolone and fresh Mozzarella top these sandwiches served nicely toasted and melted.
