A neighborhood cafe located in historic Jackson Ward, Stoplight Gelato Cafe serves the best gelato in Richmond (but hey, we might be a little biased). Built and opened on dreams in 2016 by Barbara Given in memory of her son Bryce, Stoplight Gelato Cafe aims to bring joy to our guests and staff one scoop at a time.
Our flavors are as creatively diverse and traditional as RVA and the customers we serve. Every flavor is made by hand by one of our trained Gelaticians. We take our gelato and sorbetto seriously and make sure to use only the finest ingredients and to make certain that it’s always served perfectly.
Our display cases offer an ever-changing selection of gelato and sorbetto flavors, including gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan options. Check out our latest social media posts to see current selections or give us a call and we'd be happy to share our favorites.
We hope that our gelato inspires you to celebrate life with friends and family on days that are both ordinary and extraordinary. We would be honored to be a part of your baby showers, office parties, birthdays, weddings or just your Netflix and chill nights! Whatever your event and party planning needs are, we've got you fully scooped and covered. Call us to discuss catering options and pricing - we can pre-scoop your favorites from our current offerings or work with you to create a custom order.
Gift cards are also available and make great gifts!
