Delicious lunch.

Ate here by chance, as we walked through the Gaslight district. Had a lovely meal - a caprese sandwich, a chicken and zucchini crepe, and a shared hazelnut banana crepe for dessert. Also had one of the best cappuccinos I've ever had. It was only after we were completely full that we walked inside... read more

Seriously, this is the best gelato I've had outside of Europe. The staff is incredibly friendly, the coffee is good, but the gelato is AMAZING. I got a medium (which was a ton!) that allowed me to get two flavors--Nutella and dark chocolate. My girlfriend got peanut butter and cookies & cream. So so good. I'm having dreams about it... More

We crossed the street after dinner for some gelatto and it truly is delicious. More than just ice cream though! Give it a try!

I'm on a pretty strict diet, but every time we're in San Diego, we make sure to stop by Chocolat Cremerie! Love the gelato there, and the place is clean, the staff is very friendly, and they even have crepes that are awesome! If you're looking for a nice sweet treat, this is a great place. Avoid the other touristy... More

We went here for dessert after having a fantastic lunch nearby. There were a lot of flavors to choose from and we ended up ordering more than initially planned, because we made the mistake and sampled several great gelatos. We did not regret the indulgence, though! A great place to stop by before you continue on exploring the city and... More

There is a very clear reason why there is not a wait for this restaurant and it is at least an hour for snooze and Hash House. However, the food is decent and reasonably priced, but it just lacks the extra finesse to make it fantastic. We will probably try other places before we come back.

Stopped by here after dinner for some gelato for dessert. Many flavors that you can sample. They offer several types of desserts & crepes also. We got the pistachio, cookies & cream and salted caramel gelato. Everything was tasty. Will have to stop by and try their breakfasts.

On Christmas Day we visited Gaslamp Quarter, saw this cute place & was ready to get some desserts after dinner. The hostess was friendly & tried to find us a table. All of a sudden a guy stormed out to the front, and started to tell the hostess in a rude manner to not let these people sit if they... More

If you are craving gelato and are in the area, it is worth the visit. There was a decent selection of flavors, and of course you can sample till you figure out what you want. It appeared that there was also an extensive breakfast menu as well. Location is right on 5th avenue in the middle of all of the... More

After a below average pizza dinner, I needed something to make up for the disappointment. I went to the location specifically to have a good dessert. The counter person asked if I want a sandwich, and I said I wanted something sweet. There were a number of desert options but I quickly settled for Gelato. Then the big decision -... More
