Great gelato and dinner too!

We stopped because they were trying to expand their dinner menu. We had the chicken Alfredo and a prime rib sandwich. We were very happy with both

Stopped by on the way home after dinner out elsewhere - hence this is a limited review. Were only looking for an ice cream/gelato treat. Tried the salted caramel offering that was Very Good (but not quite excellent as was slightly too sweet) and a sugar free (or was it fat free) chocolate treat that was also very good. Sat... More

Remember Mom used to peddle a glass of milk before bed at night. fugetaboutit....a cup/cone of Sonny's Home-made gelato will bring the "sweetest" of dreams. What a way to top off an evening in Florida!!1 Also the Espresso/cappuccino with a little Italian pastry/cannoli can be had at their outdoor patio dining area...lots of atmosphere...a local favorite!

We have been going to Sonnys for years when we come to town ,but this time in was different, in a bad way. The flavor was weak and watery, also it was crystallized like it had defrosted. My husband and I were each going to get one but I decided against it after trying his as it didn't look right.... More

If you like Italian food this is an informal place to enjoy it. Goods basics and great Gelatos and sweets. Service is very friendly. Reasonably priced

Sonny's Cafe doesn't look like too much from the outside, but don't let that fool you. Inside the menu is inventive, the staff is knowledgeable and the homemade gelato is the perfect ending to a visit there. The sandwiches are tasty and varied and worthy of your attention. Casual atmosphere, exceptional cuisine.

I've had gelato before but this by far exceeded any that I've had in the past. Great flavors to choose from and the more you eat the more you want. I recommend this spot to each and all.

Sitting on the outside under the lights set a great atmosphere. Meals were generous in size and very tasty. Our group was 10. I stayed for coffee and some chocolate gelato that was excellent. The servers were attentive. I would go there for food or gelato anytime!

Stopped here for an afternoon treat based on the great reviews. The place is not the nicest looking, but I wasn't there for the atmosphere as long as the gelato was good. There was a wide range of flavors available. I couldn't decide between the salted caramel and maple walnut, so I got 1/2 and 1/2 in a large cup.... More
