We stopped here two days in a row for the gelato. I Loved the limoncello gelato. Very lemony and better than I had in Italy. He had chocolate that was great and also liked the pineapple.

Really delicious looking choices of gelato which I was told was made on the premises. Sampled several flavors then purchased a small two flavor dish. Tried this gelato right after buying and eating some at Whetstone up the street. Preferred the taste of this gelato and felt the price was more reasonable. Would stop here again.

The coffee (latte) is the best in town. Also their bilberry ice cream is out of this world. That being said, be careful when you order as one time our ice cream was short changed.

While I went to pay my ice cream, you can't help but notice how nasty the place is (the most important part, where the food is being prepared). I felt like a roach or rat would surely come running out. They aren't wearing hair nets, which bothered me because both men and women employees had pretty long hair. It's pretty... More

Great hot chocolate for cold nights viewing the lights downtown. We also hit this place after dinner whenever we are in town. Great location also.

This was a great stop before the college race began. It was appealing decor, stark and authentic. The drinks were great. The food was delivered on time and was delicious. Good value overall
