GELATO AND SORBETTO
Port 1 Cafe and Gelateria is so much more than a typical ice cream shop. In fact, we’re not even an ice cream shop at all.
Instead, the star attractions here are our velvety smooth Gelatos and refreshing Sorbettos. Each are so delicious we know that once you’ve tried them you’ll never want ordinary ice cream again.
While similar to ice cream, in some respects, Gelato is actually quite different.
Gelato is made with whole milk, rather than cream, so the total fat content is lower. However, when we make our gelato we stir it at a low speed which reduces the quantity of air being incorporated into the mix. While an American style ice cream may be typically 60% air by volume our gelato is less than 20% air. This is one of a few reasons why our gelato feels and tastes so much creamier in your mouth than regular ice cream does even though the fat content is so much less.
Sorbetto is even lower in fat. Made by whipping fresh fruit puree, Sorbetto also includes a variety of natural seasonings and spices resulting in a flavour packed fruit filled delight.
Holding to the Italian tradition of including only 100% all natural ingredients, in everything we make, Port 1 Cafe and Gelateria also understands the importance of freshness. We make our Gelatos and Sorbettos, daily, in small batches. Nothing is ever produced in bulk or stored for prolonged periods in large plastic tubs. Instead, we rotate new and different flavours into our display freezer every day.
We are always working to bring you nothing but the best. These are just some of the many flavours we keep in rotation. Come by to discover your favourite.

SHAKES AND SMOOTHIES
Nothing less than goodness in a glass! That’s right, nothing but pure goodness!
We blend our delicious shakes and smoothies using only fresh, in-season fruits, and other pure and simple ingredients. Rather than using bottled, factory made, and sugar packed drink mixes, we hand chop and prepare everything right here in our own kitchen. You’re going to taste the difference right away.
Choose between milk, almond milk or orange juice as the base. We can even add whey protein or an espresso shot for an added boost.
These are just a few of the combinations to choose from.
