EscoGelato is the bomb! I have to admit that when it comes to EscoGelato, my motto is....Every man for himself! My wife gets extremely frustrated with me but offers me grace because she realizes this place is what I look forward to all week long! There's usually a line, especially during Escondido's "Cruising Grand", but the line always goes quickly.... More

What a wonderful place. It is somewhat hidden but worth the search. Their gelato was excellent and homemade bakery items very good. The only thing I would change is to work on their seating inside and out. The outside walk was uneven making sitting a bit problematic. Otherwise, we are certainly going back!

I came for good gelato and I got just that. I ordered a large tiramisu and despite it's small appearance, it packed quite a punch. I definitely will come back.

I tell my husband that the only way I will go to Cruising Grand with him is if I get dessert here! It is so tasty and the flavors change all the time. It is also pretty inexpensive. I love it here!

I am a fan of their gelato and so are a lot of other people. There are always doing a good business when I visit. It is very popular with students.

Gelato is the very best homemade and lots of choices. They will introduce seasonal favors as well. Small and inviting. Good salads and sandwiches.
