No matter the time of year, make sure your visit to downtown Charleston includes the Belgian Gelato shop, right by the pier and fountain. I've never gone out of my way to eat gelato, just due to lack of experience, but our visit here has made me a fan. The staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, the store was clean... More

It was the perfect combination of Belgian chocolate and Italian gelato. Great atmosphere as well. Our 2.5 year old enjoyed it thoroughly!

After walking around downtown Charleston in the heat, we came across the Belgian Gelato shop. They had a great selection of flavours. I had coconut and it was fantastic. Others had salted caramel and vanilla and they were equally impressed. You can get a little taster of the various flavours from the friendly staff. Highly recommend.

It is written Belgian waffle on the sign outside but there are no waffles at all. It's just a fake advertising and I will not come back

In Charleston ... you absolutely have to stop by Belgian Gelato near the Waterfront Park. It had THE smoothest, creamiest, very best ice cream/gelato I've ever had. What more can I say?

I had a very smooth and creamy chocolate peanut butter gelato. My daughter got an affogato, which was a shot of espresso poured over chocolate hazelnut gelato with whipped cream on top. Great choice after walking around Charleston. Hopefully we can go back before our vacation is over.

The gelato here is delicious ! The employees are friendly and the location is super close to the water front park. We enjoyed our gelato on a bench overlooking the water. Try the chocolate hazelnut, it's so good.

The Gelato place is unique, small and beautiful. The smile on the face of the server makes you more attracted to get a Gelato. Then comes a mouthsavoring hazelnut chocolate Gelato that wants you to savor every last bite of it!!! This is a place like the French bakery must be visited in Charleston!!!
