Places to go for Ice Cream on Bonaire: Gio’s Gelateria
Yesterday we went for a run so today it’s time to indulge. Gio’s Gelateria, a huge favorite among locals and tourists alike serves up some good ice cream. Gio’s central location on the equivalent of what we’d call Main Street, Kaya Grandi in downtown Kralendijk makes it an easy after dinner stopping point. Although we like the view better from the newly opened Luciano’s, Gio’s Gelateria has still got it. Definitely the best place to go for Ice Cream on Bonaire.
Great gelato, great atmosphere
Some things we love about Gio’s: Elegant chandeliers as decor, plenty of seating inside and out, and best of all delicious gelato. On cruise ship days expect a crowd. Bonaire isn’t known for it’s hustle and bustle but on cruise ship days that changes. Sit outside and enjoy some good people watching.
Koffie and Vlaai – coffee and pie
We also find Gio’s the perfect spot for your morning cappuccino. Coffee comes with a little dash of gelato on the side! You can also try the dutch apple pie with your coffee as a breakfast or dessert option. In Dutch Koffie and Vlaai – try Gio’s pie and cappuccino special for $5. We also love a Gio’s ice cream after a dinner downtown. Rather than ordering dessert at the restaurant take a walk along the water front and then head over to Gio’s for dessert and an espresso. Gio’s Gelateria is central to most restaurants and lodging on the island.
Gio’s Gelateria also has a small refrigerator with gourmet chocolates and other delicacies.
2 scoops, 3 scoops, 4 scoops or 5
Portion sizes for ice cream are small compared to the equivalent in the United States. Current prices: One scoop is $1.75 and each additional scoop is another $1.75. Add whipped cream for another $1.00. Savor every bite!
