Not the same without the former owner but it's still good. Happy to no longer see styrofoam containers but very glad I can still get two flavours in one take home container. Friendly staff. Yummy gelato.

Big selection of house made chocolates. Something will suit your taste. Peanut Butter Cups were good. Gelato was good. I tried salted caramel and coconut bounty. Worth a stop after farmers market.

A great spot to grab a nice gelato when visiting the market across the street in Ganges. I had the coconut mango, and it was yummy. I also tried the ginger dark chocolates and the salt caramel and they were delicious. It would be nicer...More

We visited Harlans every day we were on the island. The icecream, while pricey was excellent. The variety of chocolate and candies offered are pretty awesome. It was fun to look at everything and buy some for the road. A must visit!

Purchased the salty carmel and the peanut butter gelato. Both were delicious. Also purchased Easter goodies and St Patrick's day goodies.

We enjoyed our stroll through this little chocolate store very much. They have some unique chocolate items. Some are a bit "pricie"; the things we bought were very, very good. So good we went back for a second round!

The staff at Harlans make the best of the best chocolate goodies and their array of licorice is amazing. Buy a big bag of the soft licorice; it is so good.

The gelato in the window caught our attention. Both us an the kids received a large and delicious potion of our favourite flavors. Obviously there are also many selections of chocolate as well, but the gelato was well worth it after having great fresh pasta...More

Really enjoyed the raspberry Gelato but unable to find another flavor that we wanted to try. One member of our party had the last scoop of passion fruit and rest the raspberry. There were abt 20 sweet flavors but I prefer tart flavors thus raspberry.

They've been there since 1980 and are one of the most popular places to visit but for some reason they don't come up in your listings.
