The delights at kaffee eis on Courtenay Place. My favourites are vanilla bean and lemon sorbet. Hmmmm ... mmmm
Established in 2004, Kaffee Eis represents a modern fusion of New Zealand and European flavour specialising in gourmet gelato and boutique coffee. The philosophy is simple - produce the highest quality product and deliver it with exceptional service to our customers. They make their own gelato - which many believe is as good, if not better, than you will find anywhere else in the world. They use authentic Italian recipes, enhanced by quality New Zealand fruit (whenever possible) and organic milk. With more than 40 different flavours, each of the shops has an ever-changing selection of flavours to tempt your taste buds.
The fruit gelato (with the exception of banana) are all sorbetto, water-based not milk-based (containing up to 38% real fruit) and hence are 99 % fat free; while the milk based gelato is just that - milk based, in contrast to ice cream which is cream based. This means that Kaffee Eis gelato is lower in fat than traditional ice cream and has a fuller more satisfying flavour. Traditional ice cream in a cone will never taste quite the same after you’ve sampled the delicious gelato in a crisp waffle cone.
