Great Gelato!!

The first night we stopped in to get Gelato. We were pleasantly surprised. The young girl that waited on us was super nice and helpful. There were many flavors of Gelato.

He took my order for a salmon wrap, and after a few problems with my English and his interpretation of my English, we were presented with a delicious meal! I ordered a side salad at my side... More

I use to live a few hundred yards from here and my girlfriend and I loved it. We stopped all the time for breakfast, lunches, and gelato. Never had a bad experience either! Food is similar to a diner and the prices were extremely fair.

Recently spent 4 days in San Juan, had breakfast here 3x. The prices can't be beat and the quality is excellent. Don't miss this place if you are in the area.
