"Delicious gelato and a delightful venue"
I am now a keen, regular customer at this beautiful shop, where the staff are so welcoming, creative and passionate about this locally owned business. They make everything artisanally, on site, using local, organic milk and fair trade and organic certified coffee. At Delphini's they offer free tap water refills as part of the refill Devon initiative to prevent plastic bottle use. Big thumbs up! They have a very strong focus on pollution prevention, for example compostable spoons and cups which I was impressed with. They have many vegan options, gluten free cones and oat milk as an alternative for your tea, coffees and hot chocolates. You wouldn't know the dairy free chocolate gelato was dairy free, honestly! I haven't tasted a better coffee in town yet and their hot chocolates...thick, Italian style, not too sweet and are literally my favourite thing in life! (aside from the pistachio gelato). Some of their ingredients, like fruits, are sourced at the local shops and market. They even had a gelato in the summer, flavoured with fresh lavender, grown in Totnes! This place is a must visit!
