Where We Met has been a family favorite since they opened. We make trips to Tahoe about 6 times a year and it's a tradition to visit this shop and have their homemade gelato and Italian coffee. It's delicious and a great place to sit and meet new people. I love the many flavors of gelato they offer. You need... More

The gelato here is super yummy. However, the business hours can be a bit sneaky. Being in a small town, if business is slow, it makes sense to close down for the day. This is a perfect spot to walk from Tahoma Meadows BnB for an afternoon snack or a dessert after dinner from a long day of hiking. Lovely... More

You can't get better or fresher gelato on Lake Tahoe than here! Super fresh fruits and fun combos. Super friendly staff also.

Our second visit (and now last) – a couple of years after our last one – proved disappointing. The gelato is not particularly flavorful, there aren’t a lot of options, the prices are high, the portions are tiny, and the girl who said she made the gelato seemed more interested in yacking with friends outside than paying attention to her...

Very quaint little Gelato and Coffee place right in the middle of Tahoma. Be it for a short but sweet refreshing break or to treat yourself to some dessert after a sumptuous meal in the neighboring Pizza joint, this place is a fabulous choice. Their freshly brewed coffee is great and Chai Tea Latte is also exquisite. The choices in... More

I previously posted a five stars on yelp for this place. I used to get the iced coffee, and it was wonderful. The last three visits to this place, here is my experience: Iced medium coffee, very little ice (The very thin girl with long dark hair explained they were low on ice. Oh.), resulting in a lukewarm, tepid coffee... More

Adorable little shop with delicious REAL espresso, gelato, etc. A bit of Italy on West Shore, Lake Tahoe. A special place in town center, a sleepy little strip mall with a Post Office, pizza place, realtor, and this cafe. You can easily miss it... but my old word of advice.. don't. Sweet owner couple.... fantastic service. *GREAT* array of gelato... More
