Great little place in historic Pensacola. Funky, even if studiously so. Good gelato and the owner has a great story!

We had the Strawberry Basil Sorbetto. It was quite tasty and refreshing, and I believe they used fresh basil (it was growing outside).More

Thank you for visiting us. We do make many flavors with seasonally grown produce. The fresh peach, blueberry and anything with basil or mint are from local fruit and herbs. We actually even have our fresh herbs in planters on our porch. We also create...More
