During a visit to a gelato café in Darmstadt, Germany, the proprietors of La Coppa met two second-generation gelato masters, Italians Alfredo and Maurizio, who dreamed of bringing distinctive German-Italian gelato to American shores. This dream was fulfilled through La Coppa Gelato Café, where dessert artisans craft more than 40 of Alfredo and Maurizio’s sweet, silky creations. They make each batch of creamy gelato and fat-free sorbet onsite using fresh fruits, all-natural ingredients, and original recipes. These artisans top their artistic dessert creations—such as the gelato ‘spaghetti’—with snickers bars, ladyfingers, tiramisu, and made-to-order waffles. When they’re not shaping gelato into thin spaghetti noodles, they craft adults-only concoctions with vodka, prosecco, and tickets for R-rated movies.
To keep their guests full and energized, friendly staff members craft cappuccinos and lattes from their own custom blend of locally roasted coffee beans, as well as a small menu of bruschettas and paninis.
