I ended up missing the bus back to Buffalo, so my friend and I went to Royal Cafe for gelato at his urging.
It's a short drive from Rochester, and in a beautiful canalside community called Fairport.
The owner was in the middle of closing due to the day being cold and overcast, but gave us a chance since we came in from Rochester to try out the gelato.
I tried the pumpkin flavor, and was hooked on the creamy, smooth gelato. My dining partner opted for a sampling of the amaretto and peanut butter/chocolate flavors.
Prices were very reasonable, since this was gourmet, and NOT ice cream at all.
Will look forward to stop there again, maybe in the summer next year!
