As we strolled the streets of Lafayette last Saturday evening, enjoying the Art Walk downtown; we stopped in at Carpe Diem for a gelato... wow... so creamy, so refreshing and so GOOOOD.. We will be back each time we are downtown...

Alternative little ice cream parlour with seats and a piano outside. Next door to the Juliet Hotel at the top end of town. Well worth the stroll if you're not staying next door. Divine salted caramel ice cream.

Delicious gelato! They offer coffee and many unique flavors of gelato. Flavors vary daily. Very nice place to sit and catch up with a friend!

Tasty gelato in a variety of flavors. Great service. Pleasant atmosphere. I had the amaretto and the "after eight" (mint with chocolate) flavors. Best ice cream in Lafayette for sure! Offers both indoor and outdoor seating. Cute little place across from Pane & Vino (outstanding Italian food).

Was headed here for a espresso, checked out the coffee saw it was from Austin and decided to give the ice cream a go, well it's some of the best ice cream I've had in the US.. Good stuff!
