Caffe Cream is an award winning family run business based on the Wirral. We proudly make all our gelato by hand in our state of the art gelato factory and we operate two gelato parlours in New Brighton and Birkenhead Park.
Our mission at Caffe Cream is to create coffee shops built around the values of community, creativity, innovation and gelato.
Our social mission is to operate Caffe Cream in a way which actively seeks to benefit its immediate environment through social and environmental matters, always with a conscious eye on both our immediate and our wider surroundings.
Caffe Cream was founded by father and son, David and Justin Dooley. They developed the concept for Caffe Cream during visits to Rome, Milan, Turin, Bologna and Rimini. In Italy they discovered that, along with coffee, gelato parlours and coffee bars were the cornerstone of their communities. The problem was that there was nowhere back home that was producing artisan gelato in a community first environment and there was no way they could satisfy their craving for authentic artisan gelato. It was here that the concept for Caffe Cream was born.
Our first parlour opened in New Brighton in January 2012 with the concept of bringing together gourmet gelato in a coffee shop environment and combining it with a year round offering of coffee, brunch, lunch and desserts. From there they have grown into a second store, a state of the art gelato factory and a wholesale gelato operation.
Caffe Cream's award-winning gelato is produced by hand on the Wirral using authentic Italian production equipment and artisan batch production methods. We use locally sourced ingredients combined with ingredients imported from Italy's finest flavour houses. The head of our gelato production, Kieran, has been with us since the early days and has honed his craft to become our gelatai maestro managing our production and ensuring that every scoop that we make meets our award winning standards.
After years of research and developing our expertise, we have created a comprehensive range of exclusive flavours and recipes. Our team of gelato experts have developed recipes for over 140 different and unique flavours including Salted Caramel, Accidental Jaffa Cake, Cherry Cheesecake, Key Lime Pie and even Naga Viper Chilli infused Stracciatella! Our gelato range changes seasonally so pop in store to find our current range of award winning homemade gelato.
We are also proud to have developed an incredible vegan gelato recipe. Our plant based vegan gelato is made using soya or coconut milk. We have developed a number of vegan gelato recipes including Vegan Salted Caramel, Vegan Chocolate, Vegan Strawberry, Vegan Vanilla, Vegan Coconut and Vegan Oreos and Cream.
We are proud to have won numerous awards including UK’s Best Café 2014, 15 ICA National Ice Cream Awards and 5 Great Taste Awards (including a 2 for our vegan gelato). You can see more about our awards here.
