All organic, pastured raised and totally delicious. I tried the Virginia peanut butter and would return to taste new varieties. Staff was very, very friendly.

Little places like this, with the highest quality ingredients and product, are why Staunton keeps drawing people. Tourists and transplants alike. Nothing better than a stop here after shopping, theatre, or a night out.

We really enjoyed this gelato shop and will go back next time we're in Staunton. The flavors are wonderfully varied and the gelato itself was so yummy!

The caramel ice cream was very good but the apple pie flavor was incredible. I can only hope they're looking to expand closer to home.

split banana has been around for years but used to be just regular ice cream.. Sometime recently it switched to gelato and is really quite good. Nice flavors, especially the chocolate brownie, which seemed to be everyone's favorite. Great dessert after eating dinner at one of the many local Staunton restaurants nearby on Beverley Street.

Great home made ice cream, small town feel big city taste. Parking can be tricky on street but easy parking right down the hill by the train station.
