Yum!

Great breakfast, seating is a little uncomfortable. Not just a gelato and chocolate shop. The breakfast was great. Had the boar meat and peppers omlette. Loved the variety and the servers were really nice.

I stopped in for breakfast and had the Nutella Crepe with coffee. The coffee was wonderful and the crepe was sublime. Great prices too. Stopped in the next day for their gelato - it was soooo good. I highly recommend trying Chocolat when you are in San Diego - there is a full menu for all meals of the day.... More

Came here for dessert after dinner next door not a long trip at all. Yes they serve meals. A large display of gelato maybe 20+ and server to give you samples until you decide. Had dark chocolat with fresh berry (fresh berrys) good.

I had the banana, walnut, caramel crepes with salted caramel gelato and I may have to get it again this week. The coffee was also excellent. This place really delivered a great indulgent experience. The crepes and gelato is a perfect dessert for two.

My husband, 3 teenaged sons and I were exploring the Gaslamp Quarter and decided to give this place a try based on positive reviews. It was really good with fantastic service. Even offers of samples before purchasing. My husband and I decided the gelato was a mix between soft serve (his favorite) and regular ice cream (my favorite). I tried... More

Although everything looked great, I highly recommend the Nutella & Banana Crepes. Absolutely delicious. We had a large group so our food didn't arrive at the same time but no one complained given the quality and taste of our food. By the way, make sure to top off your meal with a small ice cream... You won't regret it.

I love gelato, but not so much here. I got samples of the salted caramel and the pistachio (two of my favorite kinds in Italy), but they weren't very sweet. Feeling bad asking for another sample, I decided to just go for the coconut. Luckily, that was better, but still not great. I had much better in a place in... More

It's hard tomfind fresh gelato, which is why this is one of the best places I've bought gelato. There is a nice variety of about a dozen flavors. All employees were very friendly and the cashier was a native Sicilian visiting - what a nice touch!! The only suggestion I have would be to offer more flavors unique to Italian... More
