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.

Our Story

What is Gelato?

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.
