Sweet Tooth Alert!! While recently perusing the streets of the lovely Sellwood District, Annie and I took a wrong turn that happend to turn out so right. We ended up running right into the vibrant business of Staccato Gelato. Knowing this is a fan favorite of the local Portland Gelato Shops, and we both had quite the sweet tooth, we had to go in and see what it was all about!
Staccato Gelato combines the craftsmanship of fine Italian gelato with fresh Oregon flavors and produce. In the support of locally owned business, they pride themselves on using local milk and cream, local produce and local suppliers. They offer 18 flavors of gelato daily, and a few extras here and there, depending on the chef’s choice. They also serve donuts that we hear give Voodoo a run for their money. The master donuts craftsman is hard at work every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They are worth every calorie, guaranteed.
Everyone there was super friendly to us as we indecisively tasted most of the choices. Coconut, Pomegranate and Turtle were among the favorites. You’ll have to go check them out to see what i’m talking about! There’s a lot of seating, a kids area, free Wi-Fi, and outdoor seating year round!
Stacatto Gelato also has catering and wholesale items. You can purchase any of their flavors by the gallon, just call to place an order. Also, want them to cater a birthday party or celebratory event?? They have three great catering options:
Freezer Rider- Their mobile tricycle delivers prescooped gelato with a low carbon footprint and only methane emissions. Perfect for picnics in the park, reunions, birthdays or an afternoon treat for your hard-working employees.
Full Service Scooping Cart- For larger catered events, they can bring our fully staffed cart with a minimum of five gallons of gelato. No electricity required! A wonderful addition (or alternative) to wedding cake or a unique addition to any event.
DIY- Gelato bought by the gallon combined with a catering setup equipped with cups, spoons, scoopers and/or dry ice.
We’re so glad we ran into Staccato Gelato, and we think you should make it a point to run into them sometime too at either of their two locations!Neighborhood: 1540 Southeast Bybee Boulevard
