What can be better than having a yummy gelato and any kind you like after a beach day? And the staff are nice and won't get tired of giving you samples! My favorite is pistachio. Parking is street but if don't find a close by one, no worries, the street worth walking and checking out the art galleries etc.

Great flavors and selection. There is always a line, so you know it is a great place. Some times the line is short, but moves quickly.

Love this place, small right on the canyon road before main beach. Amazing Ice Cream not a rip off at all. Waffle cones tasted so fresh not stale, always go to this place to get my ice cream. Outstanding FLAVORS!

I had my gelato made into a thickshake rather than just an icecream cup because I had been craving a good shake for ages and this did not disappoint! The flavour was delicious, but it was seriously so thick I could barely suck it up the straw, and that was exactly what I asked for, very happy!
