Wow...fabulous gelato. Friendly employees are always happy to give as many samples as you would like. Great indoor seating in an Old World atmosphere. Don't miss this heavenly treat!

Great gelato and service, however , the prices are a bit high. I guess that considering it is a tourist town, the price fits.

Hiding on a back street in historic Saint Augustine, this cozy cafe serves homemade gelato that is unrivaled in flavor and richness. I accompanied my combination cup of biscotti / caramel gelato with a handcrafted cafe aulait. Deep and rich. The perfect afternoon pickup. Outside dining is an option. Yes yes yes!

We enjoyed our cafe mochas and tropical smoothies at this quaint little cafe. The decor was nice and the place was warm and inviting. They could include a few more options for food though (especially vegan options).

We were looking for an easy dinner that was inexpensive and in a quiet place. This really fit the bill for us. We both had salads that we could customize. Everything was fresh and service was friendly.
