Grabbing Gelato at Hans & Rene

March 9, 2018
Hans & Rene

I have not indulged much with gelato ice cream as yet – my time exploring Italy is yet to come. While I was on my travels in Nigeria we came across Hans & Rene, a Gelataria in Lagos. Hans & Rene started off as a bakery in 2010 where the owner, would drum up delicious cakes. A few years later she added gelatos to the menu.

Get a load of that Gelato!

The venue in Lekki is on the same grounds of Radisson Blu which is where I was heading to meet Nibi, the founder of The Kinky Apothecary for drinks where we spotted the cute venue. It really is a delightful spot with really pretty interior that gives it a fresh look.

Hans & Rene do good cake as well!

The gelato itself is to die for. Forget about Haagen Daz and Ben & Jerry’s, this is the real deal. Now I can see why people rave about gelato. I ordered Salted Caramel (of course) that mesh of salt and sweet is so addictive and, Peanut which contained a combination of peanut chunks and peanut butter.

Who can resist cake?

We sat inside to have our dessert, the customers were a mixture of native Nigerians and tourists. Even though it was a Sunday, the place was buzzing with activity, clearly Hans & Rene is the spot.

Whether you are after cakes, milkshakes or just a coffee, then Hans & Rene is a place you should check out.
