Last Saturday, I visited Gemelli Gelato for the first time in Hampton Bays, located just off of Montauk Highway. There are many unique characteristics about this gelato shop that everyone will love: the array of unique, artisanal gelato flavors, nitro brew coffee, specialty waffle cones, and plenty of outdoor space for families to run about and play. Very few businesses offer such an incredible amount of ‘play’ space, while also serving some of the best gelato in the Hamptons!
Our favorite gelato flavors were Rainbow Cookie, and Banana with Nutella!
For the first time this summer, Gemelli Gelato is being managed by Charles and Anthony of Gelato Kings, which was founded in 2013. They work with dozens of restaurants across Long Island and in New York City, crafting the best authentic, handmade gelato. In addition to wholesale, Gelato Kings also does catering! Their gelato cart is available for parties, communions, weddings, birthday parties, and more.
You must try their flavored waffle cones, including: Red Velvet, Salted Blue Corn, Birthday Cake and Toasted Coconut. Also, stop in for their rotating flavors of the week. This week’s flavor, for example, is Chocolate Elephant: peanut butter gelato swirled with melted chocolate and mini brownie bites.
Gemelli Gelato is open Monday-Friday 2-10pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 1-11pm. Cash only, please.
