The art of gelato making is explored every day at Café Gelato in Winston-Salem. Gelato is the Italian version of ice cream. It’s got less butterfat, a higher density, and it’s served just a tad bit warmer than regular ice cream. The result: big bold flavor. Café Gelato in Winston-Salem typically has 8 or more varieties available like caramel and Nutella. Café Gelato owner Ciska Weber has been in the restaurant business for 20 years. The Holland native recently expanded her menu to include tapas, wine, chocolate fondue, and the intimate, European style Cafe is now available for small Holiday parties. David Ford spoke with Ciska as she prepared a batch of mango gelato.
Cafe Gelato is now open Thursday through Saturday till 10, Sundays 1-5pm, and it’s available for small Holiday parties Sunday through Wednesday. Café Gelato is located at 845 Reynolda Road near Hanes Park in Winston-Salem’s historic West End.
