The gelato is good but service is awfully rude. Seems they think it's cool to be blase and impatient with their customers. Other places in Watumu have gelato as good (try non solo gelato) served with a smile.

This was the perfect place to enjoy a cooling dessert in the heat that had enveloped watamu on that day. There's a wide selection of authentic Italian ice-creams to choose from. One cannot go wrong with any choice. There are also pastries available. It is in the perfect location on the main street of watamu town.

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.

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?
