Welcome to Burleigh Gelato Co.

Only the freshest ingredients
It’s a well-known fact that you need high-quality ingredients to make high-quality products. That’s why we take great care in selecting entirely natural ingredients and local seasonal produce. However, the exceptional quality of our frozen delights mainly relies on our meticulous production process, inspired by true Italian traditions. Our base cream and sugar come from local sources. We support local farmers, therefore we use Norco Milk, which is always fresh and creamy. The natural flavours that we use are just that – natural.
Gelato is our passion
In our store, your satisfaction is what matters most. Great service, generous portions and flavour advice to guide your taste buds – we leave nothing to chance! Our commitment to our customers goes far beyond the limits our products.
What is Gelato?
1- Gelato is made with milk, not cream like ice cream. This often gives gelato a more robust flavor than ice cream, as the extra fat from the cream in ice cream can dull the flavor in it.
2- Gelato is churned less than ice cream, so it has much less air in it than ice cream. This lack of extra air in it in return leaves it with a much denser/thicker texture, which often leads people to think it's creamier and richer than ice cream (although there's no cream in it!
3- Gelato is usually stored at a slightly warmer temperature than ice cream, which makes it a bit softer than ice cream, (again making it taste richer/creamier).
