We walked out after 10 mns of waiting while 3 people who should have been serving were chatting among themselves.Also the tubs were huge and turnover slow so we were not sure that what we would be getting would not in fact be 3 months old.For icecream in Maine I think The Cool Spot in Belfast does really know how...

We can stand in front of the display cases for a long time pondering which flavor to choose. It iw great they let you taste whatever you want! Always friendly people behind the counter. Love the raspberry selections the most.

Not long after I moved to Brunswick in 2010, I discovered this amazing little gelato shop. I've become a regular over time, enjoying the incredible assortment of gelato and sorbetto available and sometimes just a cup of their hand-poured coffee. The regular tables, oversize chairs, window bar area, selection of games, and local art on the walls makes it a... More

We travel regularly from Buffalo, NY, to Camden, ME. The only tricky part of this tip is leaving Buffalo early enough to make Brunswick before the 11PM closing of gelato Fiasco. It is the highlight of the trip and we love having to decide which delicious flavors we will choose. The tastes are very helpful (and given very willingly) and... More

Since I first visited the Brunswick store many moons ago, I've returned any time I can find an excuse. Need groceries, bird seed, gas for the mower? No problem - I'll happily drive 20 minutes out of my way to be able to taste a new flavor or an old favorite! I used to wait for the local frozen custard... More

I have been to many gelato stores, as my 250 lbs. can certainly attest to. What a sight to see when I bellied up to the two large glass cases, with a multitude of mouth-watering choices. That would have been enough to impress me. The taste of all 12 flavors I had over the 3 visits were superb. The people... More

It's open all year, but we especially love it in the summer when you can sit outside with your wonderful cone. We come after shows and for birthdays with friends.

My boyfriend and I split a large bowl with 4 flavors and each one was excellent. Ice cream doesn't even come close (as do other gelato I have had). We would definately visit here again!
