Authentic Italian Gelato
We make gelato the way Italians make it. Artisanal gelato made from scratch right in our store with no artificial flavorings or colorings. And we use sustainable packaging, doing our part to help the environment.
Our coffee beans are roasted by Kinesis Coffee Roasters, a local 3rd wave roaster & co-owner. We offer an array of classic drink recipes & alternative milk options as well as in-house made vanilla & chocolate syrups.
From house-baked croissants, to cookies, brownies, Belgian waffles, and French beignets, our pastries are a perfect match to our gelato or as a side with a cup of coffee.
Who We Are
Ginger’s Gelato is the brainchild of a granddaughter who longed for the frozen treats she enjoyed in Italy, made in the traditional hand-crafted way. Ginger was her grandmother who owned an ice cream shop & made fresh waffle cones every day.
We’re the lucky bunch who chanced upon what we thought was a great spot to bring our dreams of opening a coffee & sweet shop to life. We know coffee & now we know gelato.
Making the gelato in-house assures us & you that only quality ingredients go into it. We use fresh ingredients with no artificial flavors or colors, fresh fruit & fruit purees in our sorbetto, & offer vegan options as well.
Contra Costa Coffee was born and, while Nona Ginger may no longer grace our space, we proudly carry on the traditions she bestowed on her granddaughter, creating artisanal gelato & sorbetto and topping each scoop with a piece of house-made waffle cone in honor of Ginger.
Coffee & gelato, the perfect combination…just ask any Italian!
