Discover

the Black Dog Gelato Difference

We create our Chicago Style Gelato using a Northern-style base and have modern, intriguing flavors you won’t find elsewhere. The Northern-style base is known for being creamy, rich and above all- tasty. Similar to ice cream, our gelato starts with simple, local ingredients: milk, cream, sugar and eggs. We care about the quality of our ingredients: our dairy is sourced locally, we feature produce that is picked at the height of the season, local spices and the highest quality chocolate. Only the gelato we make that morning is served that day which means we may run out sometimes. Visit us at our West Loop or Ukrainian Village shop!

What is Gelato?

Gelato Flavors

What is

Gelato?

Gelato is creamier, smoother and silkier than ice cream. In the gelato making process, less air is incorporated while churning, which is how gelato achieves its creamy texture with less fat than traditional American style ice cream. Gelato is served warmer than ice cream, around 7 to 12 degrees Fahrenheit, which leaves your mouth less numb so you are better able to taste the intense flavors.

Come check out our monthly rotating flavors and see the difference for yourself!
