- Morelli’s Gelato
Morelli’s has made their ice cream fresh every morning in each store for over a century. The tradition began in Scotland when Giuseppe and his son Mario arrived from Southern Italy.
They set out on their bicycles every morning to sell their ice cream, returning home when every scoop was sold. In 1932, Mario opened the first Morelli’s Gelato in England on the Broadstairs seafront in Kent.
In 2023, Morelli’s can be found in the market building of Covent Garden. They offer a wide variety of vegan options such as dark and rich Venezuelan Chocolate, silky smooth Hazelnut Gelato (made with roasted Hazelnuts and oat milk), creamy and tart Raspberry Ripple, and various sorbets like lemon, mango and more.
