Ice cream. Who doesn't love ice cream? Whether served in a cup or piled high in a cone, there's just something about a cool scoop of delicious gelato that everyone loves. Maybe because it reminds you of being a carefree kid or summer days spent at the beach?
In Bali, it's as much for the cooling effect as the taste that gelato cafes have become so popular. In this blog post we introduce to you three of our favorite gelato hangouts on the island.
Gusto used to be a bit of a best-kept secret amongst locals and expats when it was originally located in Umalas, however now since it's moved to Jl. Merta Nadi it seems that the secret is out! With easy access from Sunset Road, the new location also offers a larger parking area as well as more seating both inside and in the garden towards the back of the shop.
We're not sure what our favorite flavor of gelato here is, there's just too many to decide. They're well-known for their chilli chocolate but then there's also guava, choc mint and apple. Luckily you can combine two flavors in a small cup for Rp. 28,000 or three flavors in a medium cup for Rp. 30.000. It's a win-win!
|Opening Hours||Monday - Saturday : 10am - 9pm|

Would you like to imagine a life without gelato? Lello Lello wouldn't. They believe that without gelato there would be darkness and chaos, and we tend to agree.
This sweet little gelato shop is located opposite the Samaya in Seminyak, just a short stroll up from Bodyworks and Sea Circus. With gorgeous decor and a relaxed seating area, it's the perfect place to stop off for a cool scoop of gelato or a fresh young coconut. Exotic flavors include orange chocolate, mango, pandan & ginger, dragon fruit and blood orange.
If gelato weren't enough, there's also a small curry stall serving up traditional Indian curries with hot steamed rice and rotis. Gelato and curry, what's not to love!
|Opening Hours||Monday - Sunday : 8am - 11pm|

Ubud people would know all about Gaya Gelato - they have a small gelato shop at Gaya Fusion on Jl. Raya Sayan. But now there are two new locations in the south to keep the kids happy - one on Jl. Werkudara near Double Six in Legian, and the other at Echo Beach in Canggu.
Gaya like to keep things simple, from the look of their logo to their gelato flavors. Classics like strawberry, vanilla and chocolate are all hand-made without using preservatives or anything artificial. Again, you can buy one or two scoops for Rp. 20,000 and Rp. 35,000 respectively.
|Opening Hours||Monday - Sunday : 10am - 10pm|
