Dear friends, at Bobboi, we’ve always taken pride in going beyond health department standards because health and safety of our customers and team members come first. It is an obligation that goes far beyond Covid-19 and speaks to our responsibilities to take sanitation and gelato handling seriously in our shops. Yes, we feel the obligation to protect our customers, our team members, and the general public. And this is now more important than ever.

We are actively monitoring the evolving Covid-19 situation and taking steps advised by the CDC, WHO and local health officials. We trained all our staff to follow recommended procedures such as repeatedly washing hands with soap and water for twenty second, avoiding touching the face and periodically sanitizing all work and table surfaces. Furthermore, they have been briefed on additional precautionary steps that we will be taking in order to provide the safest environment possible for anyone that comes through our door:

  • Alcohol based sanitizer dispensers for our customers in our locations in La Jolla and Kettner Blvd
  • All our team members are required to wear gloves at all time
  • Gloves have to be changed and hand washed between orders every time we manage payments
  • All detergents have been replaced with detergents suggested by CDC for being effective on Covid-19
  • Customers surface are being cleaned with disposable sanitizing towels (not with rags)
  • Reduced inside seating to allow the appropriate room for personal distancing
  • All our cups and spoons are single use, disposable and compostable.

Unless instructed otherwise, all Bobboi locations will stay open as normal. We will also look into setting up deliveries with the main service providers.

Thank you for your continued support. Together we will get through this!

Please come and visit us at our three locations in La Jolla, Kettner Boulevard and Little Italy Food Hall.

On March 11th 2020, Marla Cimini from USA Today published an article about the 10 Best Under the Radar restaurants in San Diego.

We, here at Bobboi are very proud to be included in that list. As all the other restaurants listed in this 10 Best list are full service establishments and we are the only specialty shop.

We encourage you to visit us at our three locations: Our first opened location on Girard Avenue in La Jolla.The Latest Bobboi Natural Gelato opening on Kettner Boulevard. The location inside the Little Italy Food Hall which will get you to enjoy your gelato next to the fountain located on the Piazza Della Famiglia. You will get toexperience our always changing seasonal flavors. We pride on using seasonal ingredients and therefor offering you the freshest and most natural gelato served in San Diego.

Here is what USA Today had to say about Bobboi:

Serving up small-batch artisanal flavors, Bobboi Natural Gelato is filled with organic and satisfying ingredients. While the company’s original La Jolla location is a busy spot (due to its location near La Jolla Cove), its stall in the Little Italy Food Hall still flies under the radar.

With smooth, refreshing flavors that change daily, depending on what’s in season, Bobboi serves up a cool selection of surprising and delightful options. A few of their more original creations include pluot sorbet, almond zest or matchatella (a mix of Japanese matcha tea and dark chocolate pieces).
