This is a light bright cafe close to the plaza. I can't speak to their espresso drinks; their ice tea is terrible, and this is in a town where lots of places serve really good ice tea. Their gelato is not very good. The chocolate barely tastes of chocolate. I ordered blackberry and couldn't even tell that's what it was.... More

I like their new location. Larger and cleaner. Parking is still a challenge, especially now that you can no longer park at the Library after hours. Good gelato and friendly service.

Love the new location. Created a new drink. The staff was happy to help. A scoop of hazelnut gelato in a medium cup of ice coffee. It was delicious. We called the new drink "The Padre". Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

I tend to favor a strongly flavored gelato. I guess I'm always searching for something that matches what I first found in Florence thirty years ago, and it's not entirely fair because tastes evolve. In any event, I loved the texture of Ecco's gelato while finding the flavor just a bit light on the tongue--not quite oomphy enough for me.... More

I came for coffee with my mother-in-law and 2 small children. A good selection of wonderful flavours, beautifully presented and available in a range of sizes to suit all tastes. I really liked that they allowed multiple flavours in each cup, we all got a couple of different ones and all shared. Having WiFi issues where I was staying, I... More

A good selection of unique and delicious flavors. We opted for watermelon, ginger lime, and French Vanilla. All three were excellent. Service was fast and friendly.

Not many places to get ice cream or Gelato in town. The gelato is good, coffee over priced though $3.00 for a single expresso! Right next to the bike shop in case you need a little refreshment after a ride. Has WiFi.

My wife enjoyed her affogato al cafe made with vanilla and chocolate gelato & a shot of espresso...Delicious! My chocolate and blueberry gelatos were also great.

The gelato here was mildly flavored and in no way would one who has traveled frequently in Italy ever conclude that it was authentic in nature. For folks who like mildly flavored, very sweet stuff, it'd be good, I expect.

Ecco moved to a larger and brighter space a block away from their other location. The interior is bright and white. They have the same selections as before. I wish the lattes were stronger.
