We've been here close to a dozen times now and it never gets old! The gelato is simply the best frozen dessert you will ever have. I nearly always get coconut, coffee, pineapple, or mango. Simply amazing!

Let's just say to start. This place of business had a huge opportunity to make some money off us. We looked all over for breakfast and everywhere as packed. I remembered this place as we had passed several times and I thought looked and smelled great. At the counter stood two very frazzled girls Ashley and Melissa. They said no... More

We stopped by closer to 9 pm, so there food section was closed. We did not expect that most of the places in St. Augustine close at 9 pm. The very kind boy from the gelato stand gave us few options where we could still catch some food. We did so and after dinner decided to treat ourselves with gelato... More

We were walking after dinner, and had not had dessert because we didn't like the options where we ate. So we thought we would have something later when we got back to our hotel. However, we walked past Cafe Del Hidalgo and glimpsed the gelato counter. I am a gelato fanatic and had to go in. The selection wasn't massive,... More

We had just eaten and I was in search of something sweet. Amazing atmosphere to have a snack. We just had gelato and it was delicious! The peanut butter was especially some of the best I have ever had. They were also cheaper than a gelato store down the street and took credit cards!! A must!!!!

We went in to get something fast so ordered a sandwich and salad. We waited over 20 mins and our food was not ready. We saw them microwaving sandwiches that should be pressed. We requested a refund and left. They need help in the kitchen department.

Had a salad for lunch. Large enough for two. It was very good. Though did not indulge, the gelato looked devine!
