This place is simply legend in Watamu, or at least it is for me. Andrea makes the finest Gelato in East Africa, not to mention the pastries and great Italian coffee. It has spacious patio sitting, good service and is a must after a hot day at the beach. A few other places in town have tried to replicate what... More

This ice cream cafe seems to be really popular in this area. It's situated amongst all the local village shops to get your souvenirs, and the great things is we didn't get hassled by the sellers while having an ice cream there! The ice cream is very creamy and tasty, they also do cakes, coffees and soft drinks.

Low traffic with the best ice cream in town. This spot is surrounded by custom tailoring shops of traditional swimming/sunbathing robes and wood craft artisans. Their ice creams are oh so creamy and delicious. We love the variety of flavours and friendly hosts.

My wife and I visited this ice cream parlour on 7th August 2016 and we confirm that they serve up the best ice cream in Coastal Kenya. The owner, Andrea, was quite friendly was chatted with us when we arrive. This place seemed quite famous as the place was packed when we arrived and many more guests arrived after us.... More

This place in watamu has revolutionised Ice cream in Kenya. The Artisan Gelato here is so unique in taste and variety that you could be forgiven to think you are in Italy. The hard working owner Andrea puts his heart and soul into his Icecream making, the results are mouthwatering delicious fresh ingredient icecreams unmatched anywhere !!!

Small cafe/shop which sells home made icecream, pastries, soft drinks, coffee, cakes. I can't find them on the web, but it is very popular with tourists and locals here in Watamu. They do have a facebook page and I can provide a telephone number and email address should that help?
