A brand-new gelato cafe called Gelataio opened last August in Palo Alto on the corner of Alma and Lytton Avenue. It is the perfect place to go with your child before or after their lesson at Palo Alto – Menlo Park’s Mathnasium. Many people think ice cream and gelato is the same thing, but they actually differ a lot. Ice cream is made from more cream than milk whereas gelato is made from more milk than cream. This makes the texture of gelato and ice cream very different from one another – gelato is much more dense than ice cream. That being said, since gelato does not have as much cream, it has less fat than ice cream. If you’re in the mood for something fruity and lighter than gelato, Gelataio in Palo Alto serves sorbets as well.
