I had the lemon mascarpone cookie gelato and it was phenomenal! I took a caramel coconut swirl chocolate to go and I wanted to go back and buy a dozen! Unfortunately, they are closed Sunday's. Lady next to me had an espresso with chocolate ice cream on top. Great presentation and friendly staff. I highly recommend!

Nice atmosphere, great location (although finding parking can sometimes be a challenge!) and amazing desserts! The friendly staff are always willing to give samples so you can find that perfect-for-you combination from more than a dozen mouthwatering gelato flavors.

Great place for a nice bit of Chocolate in many of it's different forms. Delicious gelato but hard to select one, much less two or three flavors for a treat. Nice subdued lighting. Fun seating. Perfect for before or after a show or Arts Walk.

Sure, there's chocolate, but I go for the gelato. I particularly appreciate the wide selection of dairy-free choices (including chocolate!).

If you love chocolate you must go to one of the two locations. You can also get wonderful spiked hot chocolate.

We ordered a variety of chocolates and we loved them all. The chocolate is rich, smooth, and flavorful. The fillings tasted very fresh and natural. A great place to pick up a gift for someone.

Thank Becky B
