We last visited 4 years ago, and when we decided to go out for a gelato we were drawn right back to cold fusion. the flavor and texture is great and enjoyed by both the kids and the parents.

On a block with at least 4 frozen dessert shops, this is the one we chose. I liked how they separated the nut-free fruit flavours from the nutty, dairy ones. #1 Son liked the strawberry lemonade, the mango and the passion fruit while I went with the salted caramel chunk and the espresso. My choices were not too sweet and... More

The gelato? Terrific. Interesting and intense flavors. Pricey, but what you'd expect for a treat in Newport. The server (who I presume was the owner)? Enthusiastic. Generous with samples, a great salesman, generous with portions. So far, so good, right? The sour part? While he was swiping my credit card I tossed some cash in the tip jar. Imagine my... More

The gelato and service were very good. Very friendly guy behind the counter! Wish they would bring back the salted caramel gelato.

We needed a little after dinner snack. We stopped in and grabbed two cups of sorbet. They were very tasty. There's no place to sit down inside or out, so we sat on the steps of the church across the street. Cold Fusion is a popular dessert spot - be prepared to stand in line.

We were walking down Thames Street on a very hot day looking for ice cream and we stumbled upon this place. They have a ton of flavors that are all natural I got the lime jalapeño gelato which sounds awful but was outstanding. The flavors worked really well together. My sons got fiji dream, s'mores and chocolate. They also let... More

I have tasted gelato/ice cream all over the world. And this gelato is the best by far. We loved it so much we went all three days in Newport. Creamy eclectic flavors with such an abundance of richness. The staff are a bunch of great kids with excellent people skills. And the decor is happy and bright. We just loved... More

Large variety of flavors. Some of "mixed" flavors are off the wall & really don't go together. But the good flavors are very good. Very good service. Great location.
