Name: Dojo Gelato

Location: Cincinnati, Ohio

About: According to the traditional definition, a dojo is a space where individuals practice a process to pursue excellence. Daily we craft—from scratch—fresh gelati and sorbetti. Since opening our first cafe location in 2009, our mission has been to create for you the most distinctive Italian-style ice creams you can experience.

When Michael and his wife Kimberly arrived in Cincinnati from Austin, Texas, he discovered that Cincinnati was missing a spot for authentic Italian-style ice creams. Michael opened his first Dojo Gelato location in the summer of 2009 at historic Findlay Market, in Over-the-Rhine, fulfilling a lifelong dream to create his own gelateria and kitchen where the focus was placed on freshness and quality, not quantity. Before starting Dojo Gelato, Michael trained in traditional gelato styles at Carpigiani in New York and attended Penn State’s storied Ice Cream Short Course at the Berkey Creamery.

Dojo is known for its fresh gelati, creative flavors, and dedication to providing guests with unique ice cream and coffee experiences. We create all of our gelato and sorbetti from scratch in our Northside kitchen in small batches.
