Busy busy corner cafe on St George st. Very good sandwiches and Gelato to die for! Tons of flavors and they are very generous with their samples to tempt your palates. Also offer nice selection of coffee and teas. A nice little spot to stop for a refreshing treat. Plenty of seating.

It was our first time here, but WON'T be the last. The barista offered great drink suggestions and we were thoroughly impressed.

The gelato looked as good as it tastes. The cafe also has a wide range of coffees, teas and drinks. It was a perfect place to stop on a hot humid day to get refreshed.

During a hot summer day walking the streets of St. Augustine's Historic District, we stopped in for a quick late afternoon gelato. Pay first, then bring your receipt to the gelato guys to fill your order. Of course we loved it. Also enjoyed the decor of the room, especially their old-style chairs with leather strap backings.

My husband and I go every time we visit. We love their gelato shakes and hot chocolates. This lunch items are also nice. It gets very busy but I the staff works very hard to fulfill the orders. The blond haired one is so nice and hard working. We will see you guys again on our December trip!

This is my daughter's favorite gelato "on the planet." In a trip of 4 days this time we visited 5 times (two times one day) per her request. The staff is very friendly and offers unlimited tastings of the various flavors of the day. Although the gelato is a bit expensive, you get a lot for your money. Overall, a... More

There is truly no better place in St Augustine to get gelato than here. The gelato is smooth and creamy and exploding with flavor. The only downside is the boy who was working the counter admitted to hating gelato so I wouldn't depend on him for any flavors selection help. Also I felt it was very unprofessional of him to...
