Gelati Tellhof combines handmade, italian ice cream with a Mediterranean coffee bar in Zurich’s liveliest district. Enjoy one (or many) of your 30 flavours at our café, in our outdoor courtyard or to go.

All our ice cream and sorbets come from a family run factory outside of Zurich.

They are made with milk from a nearby farm and nothing but fresh ingredients by Paolo Palumbo and his son Fabio.

Kids love ice cream and we love both. We have a kids’ corner and a few specials for our youngest costumers.

Sundaes and beverages

We have up to 30 different flavours of ice cream, sorbet and yogurt. Some are seasonal, so try them before we change it up!

Found a flavour you love? Choose between a cone or a cup. One scoop is 3 francs, so make it two or three! If you like to take some home we have special boxes for that.

Have time to stay? How about an espresso or a cup of tea with your gelato?

All our beverages come from local producers, our organic coffee is roasted in Zurich.

If you love combining ice cream and coffee: ask for an italian-style Affogato or our Tellhof Special.

Ice cream maker

A Gelateria is only as good as its gelato. Luckily we know the best ice cream makers and they are not far Zurich. Paolo und his son Fabio have been making delicious ice cream and sorbets under their label Amore mio since 1996.

Their recipe is no secret: Organic milk from a farm nearby, fresh ingredients, a feeling for the right amount of sugar and molto amore! They deliver us their products several times a week.
