“Very pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We didn't know what to expect from this tiny chocolatier but we weren't disappointed. We arrived very near closing time and many selections weren't available, although some restocking was underway. The service was terrific and when my husband expressed an interest in one of the missing flavours, they checked their incoming selection and found what he wanted. I tried three different dark chocolate varieties and they were of a high standard. Everything is made on site. I thought the prices were very reasonable considering the quality. We'd definitely visit again.

“Great icecream”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Just had to visit this quaint little shop. Awesome icecream. The service was very slow so be prepared to wait in this tiny place. Slightly frustrating as 3 staff floating around, non acknowledged us and only one of the girls seemed to be serving....maybe they need to just revisit this. But worth the wait as the flavours of ice cream where delicious

Thank you so much for your review!
We're thrilled that you enjoyed our homemade gelato! We take great pride in making everything from scratch with the best possible ingredients and a lot of love. We'd like to apologize if your service was not exceptional. We strive to give each guest in our little shop a personalized and friendly experience, and we are sorry you didn't receive that.
Our shop is on the tiny side, and sometimes it is difficult to simultaneously serve several customers in the same area, but that's no excuse for not being greeted. We hope you'll accept our apology and come by again for another scoop of gelato!
Thanks so much! Kim & Cam

“Gorgeous ice cream”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Two LARGE scoops of the loveliest ice cream for $5 - fabulous. They have a variety of flavours including salted caramel - my favourite. They also sell chocolates and other bits and pieces. No wonder there is a constant stream of customers at the door!

“Chocolate, Chocolate, Gelato!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

If you like chocolate this is the spot for you. It's a small little shop in the Beaches complex. I recommend the Lavender Honey gelato. So yummy!
