Who we are


We thrive in making authentic, innovative and all-round delicious gelato. You know it's the real deal, because we learnt how to make it from the best of the best in Italy!

Our award-winning gelato is authentic, innovative, and delicious. All recipes are developed from scratch and are made in small batches using quality ingredients. With a focus on sustainability, half of the range is plant-based and all packaging is biodegradable. No matter your dietary requirements there are great tasting options for everyone (we don't want our dairy free friends to miss out on the joy that is gelato.)

So go on, add a little joy; have a Little ‘Lato!

We love partnering with other cool businesses out there, especially ones that are like us and NZ local!
A whole bunch of collabs have been completed to date – partnering with more than 10 other producers to create products showcasing both brands. Here is a snapshot of a handful:

Crave Cafe is where Little 'Lato all began - our coffee and gelato bar starting in December 2018.

We have loved being a part of the Crave Collective, helping to "do good in the Morningside hood".

We have now closed our gelato bar, but are so grateful for their support with getting us up and running.

Although our gelato bar is now closed we will still be around! Stay tuned as we will be doing pop-ups throughout summer.
