It’s been around for more than 400 years and predates ice cream by a century, but gelato is more popular than ever. Soft and creamy, it is lower in fat than most ice creams and typically contains roughly half the calories per serving. Here are four top Palm Beach County spots to get your gelato fix:
Gelato Grotto (561- 882-7100), at Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens, features more than two-dozen flavors on a rotating basis.
In Boca, Sonny’s Gelato Café (561-362-0447) juggles more than 40 freshly made varieties each day.
Chocolate is the headliner at Mamma Che Buono in West Palm (561-655-1241), with 10 variations offered at all times.
For the rambling man or woman, Gelato Petrini (561-600-4088) is available at all Fresh Market locations and select Winn-Dixie stores as well as the Saquella and Prosecco Cafes (Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens, respectively).
