Great Gelato

The gelato was great. Haven't tried the ice cream yet...then again, why would you eat ice cream if they offer gelato. The gelato selection was small, but still offered enough to choose from.

I've been there 3 times in the recent past. The last time I had 'Carmelized Orange" gelato. It was the first time I've seen that offered anywhere. I love trying new things. It was delicious. They also offfered a lot of other flavors of gelato, ice cream and coffee. I brought a friend and we both enjoyed it very much.... More

Family and I were visiting Colorado Springs. Ice cream was very good (especially the homemade toffee topping), but service was amazing. Thanks to the personable, young woman with the blue hair (sorry, we didn't catch your name).

My guest mentioned her childhood memory of raspberry ice cream so we searched the cases for flavors. After tasting the lemon raspberry gelato, she ordered two scoops. And when the bowl accidentally slipped off the counter onto the floor, the servers cheerily scooped up two more for her at no charge. Great flavors to choose from in both ice cream... More

Just found this place and the ice cream and service was very, very good. Like most gourmet ice cream places, it's not the cheapest ice cream around, but the lady serving us let us try as many flavors as we wanted before ordering. Excellent choices. Our favorite was the Chocolate Orange Crunch...the Aztec with a hint of cayenne pepper was... More

We had ice cream here in June 2015. It is situated in a strip area with a lot of traffic. There were few parking spaces but the store was not extremely busy. It's a nice place for ice cream. There is a large indoor seating area and the staff were extremely nice.

We were on vaca in Colorado Springs and found this place via Trip Advisor! Cute, clean place! Good amount of seating inside and out. The lady working when we went in asked if it was our first time, we told her yes! She explained everything to us and was more than generous with samples. Which is so nice bc some... More

After a long day of travel, my husband and I both just wanted something sweet, and we decided to visit this ice cream place. Definitely a great idea-- it was delicious! I had one with caramel, molasses, ginger snaps, and Jack Daniels that was so creamy... my husband loved his as well. Parking can be a bit difficult as it's... More

Great customer service and cozy and inviting atmosphere. Went here with a friend for a late night treat. We enjoyed chatting in the back corner, which has the atmosphere of a coffee shop. We were able to sample several choices before deciding on our selections of gelato. Very yummy! I was curious how the pistachio one tasted, and they didn't... More

Small unassuming storefront in a larger mall-like setting. Friendly helpful folks dishing out homemade ice-cream (I didn't try the gelato) - what more do you need to know. We were visiting the area, and all 4 of us were glad we found this place!
