Offering a better service to all of our customers.

‘Labonata’ has recently been refurbished. The store was in need of an upgrade to offer better service to all of our customers. We now created extra space for some more seats in the store, and have room to show everybody our new seasonal products too.

During the winter months we can now also serve -besides our delicious ice creams- crepes, waffles, all sorts of toffee specials and delicious home made pastries.

Owner Aris Laan finds:”This is a great improvement to the store! I finally feel that everything fits just right and we will be able to attend to the wishes of our many customers even better!”

Latest News & Product updates

labonata heladosAbout
In our news section we will keep you updated on new products that we create, as well as on the work we do to improve our products.

Gelato-making goes back hundreds of years, long before we had fridges or ice cream machines. The ancient Romans stored snow under the ground and used it to make frozen desserts. Gelato translates from Italian into English as ‘frozen’ and not, as many people think, as ‘ice cream’.  In the early 1900’s, in a village in the North of Italia, the first gelato carts were developed and gelato was brought to the public.

What’s the difference between gelato and ice cream?
Gelato is not the same as ice cream as it has a dense texture and is much creamier than ice cream. The denseness is due to the fact that gelato contains a lot less air due to the methods used to make gelato.

Why no brain freeze when enjoying gelato?
Gelato is served at a slightly higher temperature than ice cream and therefore you will get no ‘brain freeze’ from gelato. Because ice cream is a lot colder than gelato, you will not experience the same intensity of flavours you experience when enjoying gelato.

Gelato facts
Gelato at Labonata is made from plain milk better known in Spain as “nata”, contains natural ingredients, has less fat, a more intense taste, is made from local products and is just simply a healthier option. We also have gelato which is gluten free, lactose free, or sugar free.
