Excellent salads

Loved being able to build my own salad. Not fond of the cost per item, but for a visit every so often, it's worth it.

While touring the city, we stopped for lunch here. All four of us in our party ordered a panini. I had the meatball panini, and it was delicious. We also sampled several flavors of their delicious gelato. I had the hazelnut which was a wise choice at the end of my meal. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, and... More

We took an afternoon break at Café De Hidalgo for hot Chai Tea Lattes and to rest our tired legs. Then we spotted their assortment of Gelato and we had to try the banana gelato and it was as good as any I have ever had. The workers were pleasant and we truly enjoyed our afternoon respite.

The Gelato here is wonderful AND they recommended Catch 27 (a seafood restaurant around the block) for lunch. Win, win!

Nice location, that's it. Been there more than once and never had a good experience. They never have enough of anything to prepare your coffee. The price is not so good for what you get.

Delicious, authentic-tasting gelato. Large selection of flavors. Prices were reasonable for amount received. Courteous service and ability to taste more than one flavor before deciding.

The Seminole delight panini tasted like spam and the bacon was bacon pieces about 4 the cheese tasted and felt like rubber. The salads were very warm and lettuce was wilted. The... More

If you love Gelato, this is definitely a place you should go to. So many flavor and choices. Delicious. They also serve coffee, pastries and sandwiches.
