what's the fuss about?
We are crazy-passionate about making gelato. I mean, who wouldn't be, really, in an ideal world? We spend all day creating unique flavours, taste-test them like our life depended on it, and end up churning out buckets (and buckets and buckets and buckets) of gelato daily.

But here's why it's so fun for us: We make our gelato from scratch. We get to control the quality of the ingredients that goes in each hand-made batch, and we get to create a whole slew of vegan flavours made with coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, and even water. As you've seen in the above video, our pistachio gelato isn't neon green. Instead, it has a more natural hew because we use our own roasted pistachios.

We hope to see you in for some gelato soon. We also encourage you to have fun with it. Order an affogatto (our Espresso 1749 blend poured over a scoop of your choice), or ask us to build you a custom gelato sandwich with the cookie of your choice!

But before you come in to our cafes, there's something you need to know about us..... 
mini egg gelato is a big deal at humani-t
We can't explain why the Humani-T Mini Egg craze is such a huge thing, or why people line-up out the door for a scoop of Mini Egg gelato, but... Oh, wait, yes we can -- because it's freaking delicious.

We take our Mini Egg season very seriously at Humani-T. It starts mid-February, and extends until May. It's crazy fun. We go the extreme, and sling out different variations of Mini Egg gelato (strawberry, cappuccino, peanut butter, mint), and even go out of our way to serve you Mini Egg lattes and Mini Egg cheesecake.
free gelato for charity day
Once a year, around mid-April, we give out free gelato to the public in exchange for a donation to the charity or cause we're raising money for. In year's past, we've raised money for the IWK Children's Hospital, FEED Nova Scotia, Mental Health NS, CNIB, and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

It's a super fun day, with line-ups down the block! Stay tuned for details on this year's event.


Gelato is fun. Cakes are fun. Together, those two delicious things combine for the perfect dessert that will blow your mind.

If you're interested in ordering a gelato cake from us, call our cafe with 72 hours notice and we'll sort it out for you! Just tell us which flavours you want (from the seasonal selection we have available) , and we'll make your dreams come true. 

Yes, vegan gelato cakes are available too!


You didn't think we just scoop some gelato and give it to you in a cup... Did you?

Well, sure -- we DO do that, and every last bite is epic.

But to keep it exciting for you, we have other cool, funky options that allow you to squeeze in your gelato fix in a variety of ways.

The Affogato: Your choice gelato + a shot of our Espresso 1749
Gelato Cookie Sandwich: Your choice gelato + your choice cookie from our bakery
Whichever way you decide to consume your gelato, we're here to support you every step of the way. See you soon for some cool treats!
I have to give a 5 out of 5, I have loved every single thing I have ever tried from Humani-T Cafe. The service is always quick and staff are all amazing. Being someone with a dairy allergy, I greatly appreciate the vegan options for the gelatos and sorbettos. The fact that when they design new flavours they always come up with new vegan options as well which is amazing. I tell everyone I can to check you guys out, and I let them know all that you have to offer. It is so nice to find somewhere that is so accommodating to people with allergies, and that are local to boot!

My husband and I finally tried the gelato here, we both fell in love with gelato in Italy and we were very nervous to try it here, as we thought we'd be dissapointed... But it was amazing! The strawberry was delish and the lemon, well the lemon was the same quality as the stuff we had in Venice!! We will certainly be back again and again!! Thank you for exceeding our expectations!

The gelato here is spectacular, you wont find better ice cream in this city. The coffee is also great, you really can't go wrong here. The only downside really is the desire to spend all my money here.

My boyfriend really wanted cheesecake and I figured that this would be a good place to check out as I've heard their desserts are amazing! Upon walking in I saw gelato and as someone who eats diary free I figured that I wouldn't be able to have any BUT they had 3 vegan flavors! I got coconut and it was so good, I know that i will be back multiple times this summer! My boyfriend tried the oreo cheesecake and he said it was really good so I can vouch that is it something worth trying!
