Sweet Spot: Herb & Eatery's Gelato Sandwiches

The Little Italy café turns out gourmet spins on the traditional ice cream sandwich


Published:

At Herb & Eatery, the quick-service component of Little Italy’s Herb & Wood restaurant, Executive Pastry Chef Adrian Mendoza gives the traditional ice cream sandwich a gourmet spin with his gelato sandwiches.

He pairs housemade cookies—try the chocolate chip or lime-sugar—with flavors like this month’s strawberry rhubarb sorbet made with California-sourced organic berries and rhubarb. In the ricotta honey and lavender sandwiches, you’ll taste the local harvest of San Diego’s Mikolich Honey.

Haven’t had your fill? You can buy pints of Mendoza’s gelato or sorbet alongside a roll of fresh cookie dough to go. It’s summer in a cinch.

2210 Kettner Boulevard, Little Italy
