We’ve been waiting for six long months, but finally, the time has come – it’s warm enough to enjoy a delicious ice cream cone from one of the many ice cream parlors we have near our RESA apartments!
If you’re ready to indulge in a cone, check out one of these parlors for ice cream you can receive through takeout or delivery. Plus, many of them offer walk-up windows, making getting a cone to-go easier than ever.
Pitango Gelato, located at 413 7th St NW, Washington, DC which is only 10 minutes from your RESA apartment ensuring you’ll be the first in line, serves Italian-style ice cream and sorbet in uncommon flavors plus espresso drinks and rich hot chocolate.
Here, sorbets are made with fresh organic fruit, in season and sourced locally whenever possible. They do not use concentrates, flavorings, syrups, previously frozen or processed fruits or anything that is not simply whole, fresh fruit. You’re sure to taste the difference in gelato here!
Dolci Gelati Café, located at 1420 8th St NW, Washington, DC which is worth every minute of its nine minute drive from your RESA apartment, is a sweet stop for artisanal Italian ice cream, gelati pops, desserts, panini, coffee and more.
Dolci Gelati, an artisan gelato company, was started in Washington DC in 2006 by pastry chef Gianluigi Dellaccio. Dolci Gelati offers many great varieties of gelato with a consistent level of quality that can only be achieved with artisan precision. The process starts every morning with deliveries from local dairy farms and includes handpicked fruits, fine chocolate which Chef Gianluigi imports from a small sustainable farm in Ecuador and tempers himself, and other fresh, rare ingredients.
