About Us

Founded in 2005 in historic Fairhaven, Washington, Sirena Gelato was started by our family to strive to produce the highest quality product available, made in the heart of Bellingham.  We had a 3rd generation gelato maker from Italy train us in the art of making gelato.  In 2011, we opened our second location in beautiful downtown Kirkland, Washington.

Most of our fruit flavors are fat-free, dairy-free sorbets made from delicious seasonal favorites.  Our dairy-based flavors are made with fabulous ingredients, including organic hazelnuts, premium black cocoa chocolate, and slow-roasted pistachios.  Every batch of our gelato is made the old-fashioned way, hand scooped and hand decorated, one pan at a time.

Keeping with tradition, our gelato is made with milk instead of heavy cream, resulting in less fat and calories than traditional ice cream.  Gelato also contains far less air content than ice cream and is not frozen as deeply, resulting in a denser texture and more satisfying flavor on your palate.

Chocolate Gelato

The Italian name, Sirena, translates into “mermaid” in English.  During Classical times, legend has it that beautiful mermaids would sing enchantingly from the depths of the oceans, luring weary sailors to her lust.  In our modern age, Sirena still entices those on an adventure near the water – for a delicious treat!

You may have noticed that while many people know and love Sirena Gelato, you rarely see any advertisements in local media. We prefer to use those dollars for direct giving through community events with gift cards for local non-profits, schools, charities and educational groups.  We receive hundreds of donation requests from wonderful people in our communities, and we are happy to help.
