City Gelato makes the best gelato in the Baton Rouge area! With three locations: at Main Street Market Downtown, City Park (next to the Dog Park) and a mobile cart, they are dedicated to bringing fresh gelato to residents and visitors of Baton Rouge alike. City Gelato was founded with the sole idea of popularizing of fresh artisanal gelato through the Baton Rouge metro area. Its balanced nutritional value (three times less fat than ice-cream), pronounced flavors and lack of commercial preservatives and stabilizers makes it a healthier, and in many times, yummier alternative of ice-cream.
