The Gellato is killer, just about any flavor and the texture is something that is impossible to describe in words - you just have to try it.

I could become a discriminating glutton here quickly. The choices are innumerable and the quality is the highest. Nice decor and seating plus good music in the background.

The best selection and they use the best ingredients in the most creative combinations. They encourage you to sample before you buy and let you combine several flavors in a single cup.

Good variety of gelato from fruity to salty. The server allowed me to mix two flavors in one medium cup. Three medium gelatos ran $17.50. There were chairs inside and outside if you want to eat at the shop.

They are all good but Marscapone Pistachio Caramel is one of my favorites. Just stopped by and had a treat and met up with a friend having one of his two daily cups of Wicked Joe's coffee.

After a sad experience at another renowned Ice Cream vendor yesterday this was a terrifically positive ice cream experience. We both loved the Pumpkin pie ice cream for it's pumpkin pie flavor and ginger filled creamyness.

This establishment is almost always a busy, happening place, and with good reason. Right in the heart of Brunswick, Maine, there are always a multitude of delicious gelato flavors available. Tasters are encouraged, and two flavors can be added even in the smallest dish. Fun people watching here, as customers are range from babies to elders.

Thank Patty M
