Who we are
It was 1969 when the founders of Gelats Soler, Albert Soler and Pilar Miguel, arrived in Badalona with the idea of teaching and raising awareness about their craft. At first, this led to the creation of the current Gelateria Can Soler on Carrer de Francesc Layret, which makes horchata and granizados. After a few years and a great reception from the locals, Gelats Can Soler opened a new store on a bustling street, Carrer de Mar.
For three generations, our work has been dedicated to the creation ice cream, horchata, turrón and sweets.
Our story begins with our two grandparents, one paternal and one maternal.
The grandfather of the Miquel family came from Alicante, where he made turrón, while the grandfather of the Soler family was employed by companies in Seville and Xixona as a master turrón maker.
Our history is like the history of so many Spaniards, from our homes towns, we left for the big city to find our fortunes, which is how we wound up in Badalona.
To this day, we offer all our products made with the greatest of care and dedication in our shop in the city centre.
What we do
Gelats Soler is synonymous with quality, with a keen interest in everything the world of gastronomy has to offer, which leads to the discovery of new combinations and to experimenting, to being able to approach our work with passion and diligence in our workshop where we make ice cream, horchata, granizado, ice-cream bars, etc. And when it’s the season, panellets and turrón.
How we do it
At Gelats Soler we believe in the authenticity of the products we use, in their originality and in their peculiarities, and in giving them the utmost respect when we combine them in our creations to ensure everything the ingredient has to offer is showcased.
The vast majority of ingredients come from the land, and the flavour and texture of these changes according to climatic conditions. We conduct a study every year to make sure we’re selecting the best ingredients regardless of where they’re from. This step is critical for us so we can offer you the best the world has to offer: vanilla from Madagascar and Tahiti, peppercorns from Sichuan, cinnamon from Ceylon, strawberries from Huelva, tigernut from Alboraia, lemons from Murcia, coconut from the Ivory Coast, mango from India and much more. These are the real stars in a feast for the senses
