“Unobjectionable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2010

It's gelato. Forgettable, but not terrible. I had cappuccino chip, my husband had... I can't remember. See? Forgettable. Mine was so espresso flavored, it was like a coffee punch in the face. If you like espresso, you won't hate it. The selection of flavors was... average. Not too many, not too imaginative, but there's something for everyone. There is no atmosphere whatsoever, take your gelato and run outside, quick! I wouldn't go back unless I was strolling in the area for some other reason.

“If only there were competition”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2009

Bubby's is only OK. The only reason it does as well as it does is that there is no other gelato place in the area.

“Awesome Gelato !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2009

Delicious gelato (great on a hot summer afternoon) and affordable. A very nice family-oriented place that is delightfully void of the trappings of typical "chain" ice cream stores which give my kids too many choices! Pick a flavor and enjoy. It couldn't be simpler.
