Have you ever wondered if there are any authentic gelato in Los Angeles? If so, the answer is YES.
I first stumbled upon Gelato by Stick Station at an inconvenient time- meaning I was stuffed from dinner with little or no room left in my belly. (Not like those are real factors to steer me away from desserts; because you know, there’s always room for desserts!) After one bite of their chocolate gelato, I was hooked! I knew I wanted to go back and learn more about it. So…I DID!
Gelato by Stick Station is a cute and cozy gelateria based in an outdoor shopping plaza at Old Town Pasadena. All their dairy based gelato is made with organic whole milk and fresh ingredients. That being said, the colors of each flavor are all natural. For example, the green of the Mint Chip comes from real mint leaves and the rich brown of the chocolate-based flavors are from the cacao beans. You can rest assured that all gelato here is not artificially seasoned or dyed.
Brandon, Owner of Gelato by Stick Station, attended Carpigiani Gelato Univiery in Italy to learn the ins and outs of gelato-making. He cultivated his skills before bringing his sophisticated flavors to Los Angeles. So my friends, there is authentic gelato in L.A! Through his gelateria, Brandon, strives to provide authentic gelato made with fine and wholesome ingredients.
The splendid thing about this place is that their gelato can be served in scoops or on a stick. YES, ON A STICK! If you order the “popsicle” version, you can decorate it with toppings such as almonds, chocolate beads, Oreo crumbs, and more.
My favorite flavors from this shop is the Bacio (Italian Rocky Road), Expresso, and Pistachio. I really enjoyed the pistachio flavor because it’s made with pure pistachio. This is rare since most places would mix almonds and other nuts in to the flavor.
