We stopped in a couple nights ago with friends and all our kids. Our friends who live in Bend love this place and told us we had to try it. The place was full (so we knew this was the place to come for dessert)....More

In a small store-front in downtown Bend, Bonta serves exceptional gelato. The counter people are unfailingly friendly and knowledgeable. Flavors alternate throughout the week. There are a few tables inside and a couple more outside on the sidewalk. With Drake Park a five minute walk...More

The gelato at Bonta is great. They have their staple flavors and then seasonal selections. They will also let you put multiple flavors in a cup (recommended). Vanilla bourbon pecan is probably my favorite.

Bonta just does gelato, but boy do they do it right. The real danger is eating there too often. After all there are calories in gelato. They have several standards that always seem to be there - coconut chocolate, straticella (sp?) and others plus a...More
