Black Dog Gelato

If you are in this neck of the woods, you must check out this little spot. Probably one of the best tasting gelato places in the city. Flavors change all the time, so you must come back to check out all of them! Last time I was there, I tried the strawberry gelato and the raspberry-pomegranate sorbet. Delish! My 4 year old licked his cup clean. Don't forget, it's cash only.

Probably the best gelato I've had in the US. So creamy and delicious. Friendly service, unique flavors. Definitely worth a trip!

Loved this place. Willing to give samples of every flavor. The mango literally tasted like a mango. Enjoyed the Goat cheese and caramel flavor also.

I have been here many times on my trips to Chicago and this place never lets me down. The folks who work here are friendly, helpful and always in a good mood no matter how long the line. They have some exotic (Mexican Hot Chocolate, with a bit of pepper to spice it up- awesome!) to the expected (chocolate). No matter what you select, it will be good. Make the trip!

Free samples, nice! Half & Half (2 flavors/1 cup), nice. Had the malted vanilla and Nutella, Yum! Seating indoors, lacking, but quick turnover, so not too bad. Glad we don't live closer, as this could be habit forming. Pricey, but delicious.
