EscoGelato is a small shop off Grand Ave that has a great selection of delicious gelato. The tough part is making up your mind on which flavor to pick! The staff is friendly and always ready to give you a sample.

Fabulous for a place to catch up with a friend. Cute cubby for kids to play while mom is relaxing. Yummy treats and you can get a "mini" Gelato just to slightly indulge...Plan to sit and relax after you order. Very quick but the drinks are made with love and may require you to soak up the ambiance while they... More

Off the main drag, halfway down a side street my wife found heaven.Don't know about their extended menu but if the quality is like the gelato you can't miss. Usually make it there in the summer on "Cruz'in Grand" Fridays. P.S.The line is worth it.

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

The gelato at EcoGelato is excellent. We make it a habit to stop in every Friday night throughout the Cruising Grand season, From April through October and have found it to be one of our favorite places to cruise through. The gelato is made several time a day and there are so many unusual flavors to choose from that your... More
