Welcome to Fainting Goat Gelato

Established in 2009, Fainting Goat Gelato is a family business, located in the unique Wallingford Neighborhood.

We handcraft our gelato daily at the shop using organic milk and high quality ingredients. We offer daily rotating flavors of beautifully decorated gelato and sorbetto (non-dairy) in our 18-pan gelato case. Our seasonal flavors like the merlot/blackberry for Valentine's, the Guinness for St Pattie's, and Pumpkin Spice for Fall have become neighborhood favorites!

We also offer frozen cakes and large gelato pans for special occasions.

Check out the rest of our website to find out more about the our gelato, and our family!

See you at the shop!

Love is Sweet and so is Gelato!!

It was the summer of 1976. I had rode my bicycle to the beach with a friend to enjoy the cool Mediterranean waters. When it was time to go home, we realized we had a flat tire, and called my cousin for help. He came to pick us up with a friend who had a car. That friend was Yalcin, a tall skinny guy with long wavy hair and green eyes...

We loaded the bike in the trunk, and I was buckling up in the backseat I noticed Yalcin was adjusting his rear-view-mirror, so he could have a better view of me :) The entire way home, I blushed and held my breath under his gaze, and that was the day we fell in love.

I can't even remember how many valentines days we have celebrated together since that day; but I can now say that love becomes all the more sweet in time, and as we see what our love has created:
Above all, our beautiful daughters who have each become such passionate, strong and loving woman...
And our small gelato shop which demands just as much love and hard-work as raising a child.

And with that love we have created these special flavors for Valentines:

Casanova - because it all starts with a little flirting,
Rose - because it is the symbol of valentines,
Dark Chocolate - For all the bitter sweet memories, and
Blackberry Merlot - A Northwest twist on romance, as we have an abundance of delicious berries and wines

Please come and celebrate Valentines with us :)
