“Very friendly service; hot chocolate was wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

The staff at the restaurant were very friendly! Quick service and helped us access their wifi. Wifi was fast also. My family tried all of their hot chocolates and loved each of them. They are all very different! Can't wait to go back!

“World Class Gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

The salads are good and if I ever obtain enough self control to NOT have dessert first at this quaint café, I'd like to try a Panini. You walk in the door and BAM! You're greeted by glass cases filled with gorgeous, sweet deliciousness. The gelato and sorbets are excellent and a little bit of heaven on earth. We love St Augustine and Café del Hidalgo is one of our all-time favorites in this lovely old city. We sometimes go all out and get individual coppas (sundaes). Four scoops of gelato topped with whatever you like....... sauces, fruit, nuts, whipped cream. There are plenty of enjoyable places to walk around and burn it off later. The staff are always friendly and welcoming. They are happy to let you sample however many flavors of their gelatos and sorbets as you wish before ordering. Make up your mind, go around the corner to pay, give your order and wait briefly to be delighted with an exquisitely yummy confection.

Wow...fabulous gelato. Friendly employees are always happy to give as many samples as you would like. Great indoor seating in an Old World atmosphere. Don't miss this heavenly treat!

“Gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great gelato and service, however , the prices are a bit high. I guess that considering it is a tourist town, the price fits.
