We have always wanted to be part of the Halifax Burger Week. It’s such a great initiative, and, it’s also so delicious with so many great local establishments around the city creating so many great burgers.

This year, we decided to get involved, but not in the traditional way. We’ve created a dessert burger — specifically a gelato burger!

The Gelato Burger (all of it made in-house):

Profiterole bun, dark chocolate gelato patty, tuile lettuce cookie, and strawberry ketchup.

DIY gelato sandwich kits

There is nothing quite like the old-fashioned pairing of fresh cookies and fresh gelato. Ice cream sandwiches have long been a favourite for many families. They bring people together. But how much more special would the experience be if you were to make them fresh and customize them rather than buying a store-bought, pre-packaged ice cream sammy?

Let us sort this out for you. We offer DIY gelato sandwich kits, which you can pre-order here and pick up at our north end location. Kit includes:

  • 8 cookies from our bakery

  • 2 pints of gelato

What are you waiting for? Make some cookies with your family, courtesy of the best gelato around!

Just what is gelato?

Gelato, fro-yo, ice cream, soft-serve — all descendants of the same delicious cold dessert family. But you may wonder: What’s so different about gelato, and why should I choose gelato over ice cream?

“Gelato is typically hand-made in small batches”

Yes, that’s true, but that’s now what necessarily sets it apart. Some ice cream can be made in small batches too; while gelato is sometimes mass-produced.

What makes gelato different is the way it’s made. Gelato is typically made without cream, or with about 70% less cream than ice cream. That means it has much less fat, and much more flavour.

We take this one step further:

  • In many of our flavours, we omit animal products altogether. No milk, no cream. 50% of our gelato are vegan, made with dairy-free milk or water.

  • We do not purchase any flavour packs, and make everything ourselves. We blend in over 1 kilogram of fruit into each fruity flavour, roast our own pistachios (that’s why our pistachio gelato isn’t neon green), and draw our own espresso shots for coffee flavoured gelato. If a cake needs to be layered into the gelato, we make the cake ourselves in our bakery! The list goes on. We control everything, to ensure you get the best tasting product.

More per scoop

You’ll notice that gelato is typically more expensive than ice cream. There is a reason for this, beyond the quality. Gelato has less air whipped into it than ice cream, meaning you get almost double per scoop! Better quality, better flavour, and more to enjoy! Everyone wins.

An update on Humani-T South Park

We haven’t been able to re-open our South Park location yet, but it’s closed only temporarily. We are currently spread thin for resources, and the ongoing construction from the crane disaster has been hard on us. We’re hoping to reopen soon, and will provide an update as soon as we have it.

For now, our north end location is open Monday - Saturday until 6pm. We are aiming to extend our hours within the next couple weeks.

Multiple Important Announcements For Both Humani-T Locations...

... Regarding the COVID-19 virus

Attention Halifax, we have a few updates and important announcements regarding the status of both Humani-T Cafe locations with regards to the COVID-19 virus that has spread rapidly around the globe:

  1. Our Young St location will be offering free delivery starting tomorrow (Friday) to anywhere on the Peninsula. Delivery is free ($35 minimum purchase). You can see our delivery menu below. Deliveries are all done between 11am - 2:30 pm. Any orders that are placed outside of this time slot will be delivered the next day. Overnight orders can be emailed to: nemat.supernatural@gmail.com


  2. Both locations will be doing take-out only. No cash accepted. Curb-side pick-up is highly encouraged. 

  3. Our South Park location is giving away food to those in need. We have 7 boxes filled up with produce we won't be using, including milk, eggs, onions, tomatoes, apples, bananas, sweet potatoes, and white potatoes. First come, first serve. They will be kept in our walk-in fridge and brought out as needed. Please prioritize those in need. 

  4. We are selling gift cards at DISCOUNTED rates. $50 gift cards will be $45; and $100 gift cards will be $80. If you have the means and would like to support us, purchasing these gift cards would help us pay our staff and survive the next few weeks while being closed.

  5. Our last day open South Park will be March 22nd. Hours until then will be 8am - 4pm.

  6. Young St will remain open for now, focusing on delivery and take out. Hours of operation will be 9 - 5. 

  7. Please stay safe, and it goes without saying: Please stay home if you can (this is why we've set up delivery for you). This is a time to take care of each other, to be selfless, and to get through this difficult time as one connected family.
