This place has taken Maine by storm. They offer an astonishing variety of gelato flavors, from the sublime to the highly unusual. It is always fresh and made right in the store. It's now expanded to a Portland location and many other places sell their product. The staff is exceptional--friendly, always ready to explain just what it is in that unusual flavor, and they'll let you try as many taste spoons as you like. One tip: It's rich and flavorful, and you don't need a gigantic serving. I often order the small "treat size". It is very popular, and you can't bank on finding a place to sit, but I go well out of my way to stop in here whenever I am remotely near there.

We can stand in front of the display cases for a long time pondering which flavor to choose. It iw great they let you taste whatever you want! Always friendly people behind the counter. Love the raspberry selections the most.

Not long after I moved to Brunswick in 2010, I discovered this amazing little gelato shop. I've become a regular over time, enjoying the incredible assortment of gelato and sorbetto available and sometimes just a cup of their hand-poured coffee. The regular tables, oversize chairs, window bar area, selection of games, and local art on the walls makes it a great place to put up your feet for a little bit, converse with friends and enjoy a great treat. Ps- the team behind the counters are always wicked friendly to boot!

We travel regularly from Buffalo, NY, to Camden, ME. The only tricky part of this tip is leaving Buffalo early enough to make Brunswick before the 11PM closing of gelato Fiasco. It is the highlight of the trip and we love having to decide which delicious flavors we will choose. The tastes are very helpful (and given very willingly) and the results are wonderful! Often we will take pre-packed frozen flavors with us to Camden. It is our favorite US place for gelato.
