Look no further than 1022 Cafe & Gelateria, based in Oceanside, California, for simply delicious gelato for your wedding day. Each delectable mouthful is made to order for your special occasion with premium ingredients shipped from Italy. Their temperature-controlled product can be served at any event, and the team are flexible with their prices so everyone has the opportunity to enjoy it. Don't miss out on five-star flavors and outstanding service that will wow your guests.

1022 Café & Gelateria started as a friendship in 1991 when we (Conor and Eric, the owners of 1022) were born. As kids, our stubbornness for flavor aggravated everybody around us. This stubbornness blossomed into even more stubbornness and ultimately created a duo of incredibly specific culinary consumers. Best friends since childhood, our friendship has remained constant throughout over thirty years of challenges.

What we provide stems from vision, passion, and technical expertise in curating quality ingredients to create unmatched flavor in Gelato and Coffee. We have created a single storefront in our hometown that boasts the flavors we believe San Diego deserves.

We have put everything we have into proving this concept, and it's working. We have 5.0 stars on Yelp! and Google. We have the highest rating of any gelato shop in San Diego.

We provide up to four flavors of gelato for events of all shapes and sizes. The Italian gelato display case in our storefront is a focal point of our product, and we have two catering containers made by the same company to bring you temperature-controlled and gorgeous gelato with ease. We set up AND host the serving of gelato at your event.

We are a "mom-and-pop" shop looking to talk to you in person to show you how special our product can be for your event. We are willing to make anything work JUST to make your event better and share our product with you.

Our gelato is traditional and authentic, made in-house every day. Every customer that comes into our shop can taste the passion and perfection that we try to curate in each flavor.

To date, we've impressed every single customer that we've had who has either lived in Italy or is originally from there. This simple fact keeps us going.

We are most known for our pistachio gelato, and we source our pistachios straight from Mount Etna, the volcano in Sicily. Although they are expensive to import, the flavor profile is unmatched. This recipe won awards internationally, and it's about time that YOU get the chance to experience REAL Italian gelato.
