Wow . Everything here is so good. Made in house and very fresh. The pimiento cheese on homeade ciabatta rolls are amazing. Spumoni Saturdays are my favorite. If your not familiar with spumoni stop in and get educated on the best tasting dessert around. You will never look at ice cream the same. Staff is super friendly. My wife had... More

I drive from Bristol for the sweet and delicious gelato, which I prefer over ice cream. Every flavor I have tried is delicious.

Really enjoy the lunch menu - home made soups, great bread, and delicious sandwiches. It's very casual, order at the counter; and while waiting in line you can be tempted by the gelato - all made in house. The flavors change frequently and all I've tried are delicious. Regular patrons are rewarded with a free lunch after 10 visits. It's... More

The ice cream flavors were tasteless. Sorry but we would rather eat dairy queens ice cream than yours. We did not finish the scoops that we picked.

My husband and I had lunch here for the first time, and I have to say the food was excellent! I had the Cuban panini, my husband had the brisket panini, and the beef barley soup. The soup came with a large piece of homemade bread. Everything was tasty and served hot and fresh. If I had any criticism it... More

I have not had a sandwich or soup here, but they seem to have quite a few vegetarian choices so I will come back, but the Gelato is out of this world. The best I have ever had. The spumoni is out of this world.

It's pretty good as gelato in northeast TN goes, but I've have much better in Florida and Vegas. Truthfully, I didn't care much for their flavors and stuck with the vanilla which was good but, you know, vanilla. The line takes a long time and the place is not comfortable, but there is some outside seating that is better if... More

A quaint place with neat, large murals. It's an order-at-the-counter, then take a seat type place. They have a small but very diverse menu (deli fare to bahn mi to Thai bowls) and their gelato is great. Service was slightly awkward but friendly and efficient.

I was there yesterday, give me a break $3.50 for one scoop, maybe I'm cheap but I can get a whole carton for $4.42. It was dark, I did check out there sandwich board as well. I guess when you have a fancy name you can charge fancy prices. The bad thing is it was kinda of a dark inside... More
