Bespoke cafe/coffee house

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Good gelato. As close as you can get to Italian gelato. The hazelnut flavor was excellent, and the pistachio was good too.

“Perfect way to cool down after a hot day in Lafayette!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Their biscotti gelato is amazing! They have a lot of unique flavors to choose from which makes it hard to stop with just one scoop! Cozy atmosphere and friendly staff make it a great place to stop in for a quick, cool and yummy dessert!

“Amazing flavors, authentic one of kind taste.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

I sampled the advacodo gelato which had won some award- it had basil notes highlighting the flavor which was soft and sublime. I had an italian drink of expresso and two scoops of sweet cream gelato which was out of this world. Sweets are not my thing but wow, this was good stuff! The owner came out and talked to us, she's from northern italy and it shows. Wow, and the atmopshere was pretty cool with downtown Lafayette being one cool spot. Worth a stop

“Best Gelato, Freshest Ingredient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Owner has pride in the business and knows everything there is to know about making the freshest flavors of gelato. Try samples for free before picking your choices to enjoy. Unique but creative combos of flavors. Amazing coffee, too! Atmosphere is fun and inviting. Also environmental conscious. A place to relax, chill and enjoy the city and her people!
