Stickhouse Brings Gelato on a Stick to Third Street Promenade This Spring

More casual takeaway fare for the tourist area.

There’s even more gelato coming to Los Angeles today, thanks to Stickhouse Authentic Italian Gelato in Santa Monica. Located right across from Santa Monica Place at the end of the Third Street Promenade, the upcoming dessert shop is the first U.S. landing for Stickhouse, which enjoys 92 locations globally.

The name is a nod to the unique format behind the Italian gelato shop, which actually serves their gelato on sticks like ice cream sandwiches. Using all natural ingredients, the menu also includes sorbet sticks with gelato inside and dilezias, which is essentially a wedge slice of vanilla cake that’s altered with ice cream and dipped in chocolate.

The shop is currently papered over thanks to construction inside, but when Stickhouse opens later this spring, it’ll bring a dessert-focused boost to the southern edge of the touristy area.
