We all scream, for ice cream

We all scream, for ice cream

Located in the Old Town, Gelato Ladies offers traditional Italian ice cream.

 

Gelato Ladies has been serving happy customers for one year already and has already developed a strong customer base.

“Opening a gelateria was a tall order in Tallinn”, explains owner Sindy Püssa.

The café door swings open and closed, and as customers walk in and see the colourful display of gelato, all their worries seem to melt away.

“It’s a fun business. We make people happy”, continues Püssa.

The best feedback came from an Italian customer, who said that this gelato was the best to be had outside of Bolzano.

 

Püssa and her business partner Kristen Tuulmets learned all the secrets of gelato-making in Bologna at the “gelato university”. The area is the heart of gelato-making in Italy.

“We wanted to make authentic Italian gelato, the traditional way”. Though she admits that the flavour had to be adjusted for Estonian palates, as Italians like their gelato very sweet.

The most popular flavours are pistachio and hazelnut, as well as different sorbets. There are 18 different flavours available at any given time, which changes regularly.

“We make our gelato daily. We make 30-40 different flavours”. Püssa’s favourite is made with fresh peppermint.

You can watch the gelato being made behind the glass in the gelato machine, which is the most important element in the kitchen, as well as the ingredients, of course. Cones are also made fresh on site.

You can also enjoy other Italian delicacies like coffee, wine, beer, prosecco and lemonade at Gelato Ladies.

So how does the gelato taste? We tried pistachio and hazelnut, as well as strawberry sorbet. It’s just like in Italy, mouth-watering fresh flavours.
