If you are an ice cream-aholic, this is your place. Every flavor is simply divine. Smooth, full flavored, amazing. You can taste any and all, and be sure to join the red spoon club!

We had caramel brownie bits and expresso choc chip in a yummy cinnamon-y waffle cone. Shout out to young lady behind counter who cleaned up a HUGE mess from a customer with a smile and then hussled back to counter. The manager needs to give...More

So delicious! Additionally I have never been to a gelato place that would allow you to put as many flavors as you want into any size. It was such a treat to have a treat sized dish with four AMAZING flavors.

This ice cream shop is amazing, I have never had high end ice cream. This ice cream is thicker than typical hard serve. They have many flavors and offer samples on them too. I would recommend giving this place a try, it is medium priced.

So many flavors, everyone can find something...both gelato and sorbet. Plenty of seats inside and outside. Friendly employees, generous servings, fair prices! Cool “tip jar” (each credit card swipe is $1...easiest and coolest thing ever)! The “gelato fiasco” is a huge dessert for like 10...More
