Came here for desert 😊 got the strawberry and Nutella crepe and it was perfect. Wasn’t over smeared with Nutella so it was the perfect mix of strawberries Nutella and crepe. Reasonable price too I think around $10usd Mark

Definitely a great stop if you’re looking for a light lunch and a treat afterwards. The Caesar salad with chicken and fresh shaved Parmesan and grilled flatbread croutons was awesome but the gelato was the best topper of all! The gelato is fresh made every...More

Stopped for a coffee before a movie...once we saw the display case we had to try the food. Geleto, ice cream, pastries, all looked yummy. It was tough choosing...but everything we ate tasted great.

Traditional and exciting flavors. So far my favorite has been the spicy chocolate. It was fascinating to have something spicy-burn while its cold!

The gelato was really good, but it’s really expensive and the service is awful. The chocolates are good, but not for the price and having to deal with the attitudes.

Chocolat has two two locations. Then one in Hillcrest and this one which is located in the touristy Gaslamp District. The Hillcrest location is heads above this one. The gelato serving people are unfriendly and rude. I guess they feel tourists don't return and there...More
