Heavenly Chocolate Gelato

Who says you can't find good Gelato in Canada. The chocolate gelato is comparable to some I've had in Italy and that's saying something. Or you can try the sorbet. Good selection of both. I've also tried their little cheese pizza which are very tasty. Their crepes and pastries look wonderful too... read more

I went to this place with my family for some drinks/ice-cream. First of all, their selection is great, they have sorbets and gelatos, all made in house using natural ingredients. I got a fig gelato, and a passion fruit sorbet, half a scoop of each. My sister got a half scoop each of the chocolate and the hazelnut gelatos, parents... More

We had the homemade cheese pizza for the kids and the prosciutto panini for the adults. Both were absolutely fantastic. We later had the strawberry cheesecake gelato. Delicious. The only down side is that table seating is very limited: 2 tables that seat 2 and 3-4 bar stools against a side wall.

Excellent coffees and gelato. The best by far was the selection of petit four pastries. I had the lemon meringue. It was amazing. Highly recommended. Just needs more seating.

Very good gelato at this place, as well as tarts & tartlets. What keeps me coming back for more are the crepes, especially their version of Nutella. It keeps me coming back for more. A must drop-in when I'm in NOTL, no matter how FULL I may already be. They also sell their hazelnut spread. Sandwiches are a bit pricy... More

This place had a good selection of mini tarts and cheesecakes. The cheesecake was average but the lemon tart and chocolate tarts were delicious. They also had a white-chocolate raspberry gelato that was divine. I also thought the macarons were pretty good, but have had better. I would stick to the lemon tart and gelato next time and give the... More

Enjoyed creme brûlée gelato on a cold January afternoon. Would have loved to try the shortbread and cherry cheese Danish but was too full. Must return for sure!

Though in my opinion the prices are rather high, we had some delightful pastries and tea while visiting Niagara-on-the-lake. What I especially liked was the range of petit four sized pastries.. so you can try one of each for those who have trouble making up their mind or can't get enough! :) The tea however, wasn't the best quality, my...

Called into Niagara on the lake as part of a whistle top tour. Called into Nina's for coffee and cake. My wife said it was definitely the best crime brûlée ever, and she has tested a fair few! Great little shop, well worth a visit. We would have bought their stop of CBs if we thought they would travel. As... More

We stopped in Nina's for a bite to eat while visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake . We enjoyed our Hawaiian Pizza and treated ourselves to coffee and a gelato. Very, very good!
