“Gelato at its Best”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

It doesn't get any better than this... If you're ever in downtown Brevard this is a must-have stop. At least one/two flavors change on a daily basis from Lemon-ginger, tiramisu, mango, lime, strawberry chocolate, French vanilla... About 10 different flavors that are ALL amazing. The ingredients are all fresh. The creamy, smooth texture and bursting, intense flavor doesn't compare to any ice cream, custard or yogurt. You can combine a lemon-ginger with strawberry in a regular cup and really experience the complimentary effect. I don't even like ice cream and I'm lactose intolerant, but I could get a small cup of Kiwi Gelato everyday! Each batch is made by the owner, Richard - - - who is a great guy. Very likable & personable. Call if you're planning a visit in February since a trip back to New Zealand is planned and the shop will be closed.

“Great gelato!”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

If you're a gelato fan, you won't fine much better. Friendly service, good selection of flavors, and convenient in the center of downtown Brevard. They supply the gelato desserts for some of the area restaurants, and this speaks to the quality of their gelato.

“Superb coffee!”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

On our way up to Maggie Valley from Greenville on US276, we passed through Brevard. We'd never been through Brevard before, but had heard from others that it had a quaint downtown. Once we got downtown we were craving coffee, but the signature shop in town had just closed for a private party. Not knowing previously about Kiwi Gelato (and Coffee), we circled the block at least half a dozen times, our coffee radars screaming but our eyes not seeing! Then, on what was about to be our final pass, I spotted it, the word "coffee" on a window. We quickly did a u-turn in the middle of the street and pulled into an empty space in close proximity to our fix.

We quickly learned, once inside, that not only were we going to get coffee, but espresso coffee just to our liking! My wife had a cappuccino and I a mocha sin leche (espresso and chocolate). Our daughter got a chocolate gelato in a kid's portion which she didn't eat, so we got to sample the gelato as well. The value for what they offer when you compare to a Starbucks is untouchable! Everything was outstanding, and we are so glad we found Kiwi Gelato. Not only did we get our badly needed fix, but we now have a favorite place to go when in Brevard!

“Caution! Addictive!”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Our family lives in Brevard and we frequent Kiwi Gelato several times each week. The owner picks interesting flavors to make. There is always something for everyone! Choose from approximately 10 flavors, the best (in my humble opinion) being the Hazelnut, Biscotti, or exotic fruits such as mango (no, the kiwi is not my favorite)! A large variety of coffees, espresso, etc. are also offered. We are not the only ones that love Kiwi Gelato, as several of the nicer restaurants in town offer the gelato!
