A favorite in the summer with my kids, but also a nice rest stop for a tea in a rainy afternoon. Lots of gelati flavours to choose from, and many adult-flavours like Kir Royale Cherry or Dark Chocolate Rum. You can also get hot drinks and they do have a limited selection of sandwiches and desserts. Most of the ones... More

A relaxing small café for a good lunch with great variety of coffees, chocolates, juices, sandwiches, some tastycakes and, of course, a large variety of ice cream.

I was a little skeptical when I read a sign at this place that they've been awarded 4th place in the Best Gelato across NA. But it IS indeed, and after my first taste of one of the three flavours in my bowl (I've been several times since) it should be number 1!! I can't imagine how the other three... More

Unique flavors that can be combined! it's really really delicious, and the staff is really helpful for picking a good choice. The place is lovely and closes later than most businesses nearby. Great for sharing too.

Hyperbole aside, a sign on the wall does mention they were awarded 4th Best Gelato in North America at the Gelato World Tour. Be sure to ask for samples before choosing. The staff are patient and helpful, even though it is very busy front of the gelato window display. The prices seem high, but the portions are generous, and the... More

This is my favourite café in Ottawa. The sandwiches, quiches, soups, desserts, coffees and teas are all delicious, but their specialty is gelato and it is amazing every time. I love the pistachio especially. I also love the feel of the place - very European. However it can be very crowded so try to go off peak times.

After we found this place, I don't think it is worth to buy any other ice cream or crêpe. Staff is polite and patient. Place is clean and confortable.

I enjoyed my double scoop ice cream; it was really especially nice on a hot day. However, when I paid for it I remember thinking "ouch, this ice cream better be good for $7.50". I'm pretty sure that I do not understand the business of owning an ice cream shop/restaurant ...but it seems unnecessarily expensive.. Eeeek! Hate to give a... More

This is close to the best gelato I have had. The atmosphere is nice too. It is popular year round, and with good reason.
