When you walk in, it's not picture perfect. The quirky building has been converted and they have made the best of it. Now... this place offers great treats- best gelato (sometimes 25+ flavors, favorite is cinnamon ), a dozen local made italian bakery goods (ours was fresh and perfect), good espresso and even full dinner entrees (haven't tried but they...

Used to go here more often and then other places opened that had better gelato. Why discontinue the pistachio flavor saying that the ingredients cost too much ? Other places do not have the same problem !

After recently returning from Italy, where I ate gelato everyday, I had a craving for more. I decided to go toSonny's Gelato Cafe, which I hadn't been to in some time. Not only do they have gelato that is as good as what we just had in Italy, but they also offer expresso, cappuccino's , pastries , and to my... More

A few days ago-- having a Groupon for pay $12 get $25 of food, my wife and I tried Sonny's. What a great find. The people working at the restaurant were so nice with wonderful service. I ordered a chicken pesto paninni which was so large, I took 1/2 home-- it was terrific. Believe it or not, it came with... More

Each time I've had gelato at Sonny's it was tasty and rich. On a recent visit to Boca Raton, we decided to eat lunch there..... wow! I had a rich, full-bodied salad and a chicken pesto sandwich.... both were well-prepared and fresh. I also have tried various desserts, ices, and coffees there... Sonny's never disappoints. The charming staff is friendly... More

While we were in Boca Raton, we stopped a Sonny's for gelato at least four times not including the time we ate lunch there. Open late and the Gelato is as authentic as it gets.

Sonny's has changed hands. We were apprehensive when we settled in for dinner and found out. No worries! The new owners must have the gelato recipes because we tried several flavors, and they were all outstanding as usual. Oh yes, we did eat dinner too. There were five of us. We each had a different dish, and everyone was happy.... More

This is a great place to grab a gelato and sit outside. They have many flavors to satisfy your cravings. They also have other food and coffee drinks but gelato is their focus.

We have been getting gelato at Sonny's for six years but I must say that this year was a big disappointment. The mark of great gelato is smoothness and intense flavor. This year's experience was terrible. The gelato was crystalline and the flavors were very weak. The pistachio pieces were so small that they were barely noticeable. The mint chocolate... More
