Hi! We're Sorpresa

We are The Sorpresa Gifts – Sorpresa for short. Located in downtown Dubuque, Sorpresa is the ultimate destination for gelato, chocolates, and gifts. 



Our gelato is homemade, full of flavor, and rotates weekly. The gelato is made in-house by our boss babe family. We offer gluten-free, dairy-free options. Our flavors feature lots of favorite combinations, as well as some unique options for those who like adventure.


Our chocolates are from the Chocolaterie Stam. Chocolaterie Stam is a modern chocolaterie steeped in old-world Dutch traditions. Handcrafting exceptional white, milk, and dark chocolate bonbons since 1913.


The brands we have chosen to represent Sorpresa are full of character. Most of our lines are small businesses, handmade, and eco-friendly. Lots are female owned, Iowa based. All are full of incredible products that are great as gifts for others, or for yourself.
