Longing for the perfect gelato? So were the owners of the Chocolat Cremerie, which is why they imported an Italian master to whip up creamy perfection daily. Using shipped-in base ingredients and fresh fruits, plus infusions of rum and wine or swirls of crumbled cookies, Chocolate Cremerie has grown to become one of San Diego’s finest destinations for the Italian frozen treat. Many favor the dark chocolate or request berries with the Hazelnut gelato, while others seek out Oreos, but one thing is for sure: balance is key. That’s why the sunny fast-casual eatery also specializes in crêpes and offers a full coffee bar. Customers can enjoy the space, with its wall full of bedazzling, glass mosaics and swirling chandeliers that hang above the tables. Or, grab a quick cup on the way to a show, a film screening or just a walk through the Gaslamp district after dinner.
