“OMG! I've died & gone to gelato heaven.”
Reviewed February 13, 2010

This spot has outrageously amazingly tasty gelato and sorbetto. I would travel out of my way to go here. Freshly made daily. Nice atmosphere -- airy, spacious -- might get super busy in warmer months. We were there in February & it's worth eating even when it's below freezing outside. They had a cold weather 1% discount too. The tangerine ginger sobretto was out of this world. The servers were really friendly too.

“I'm dreaming of GELATO”
Reviewed December 22, 2009

Best.Gelato.Ever.
ok- here's the deal: 30 flavors changed daily- usually keeping chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, coffee as regulars, but changing the rest out.
Imagine this: Blueberry Muffin Gelato, Toasted Coconut Gelato, Creme De Menthe Gelato, Dolce De Leche Gelato, Prickley Pear Sorbetto, Desert Cactus Sorbetto...
They let you sample the flavors too, so you can make an educated decision as to which flavor you'll eat!
I love this place so much I get their "Flavor Feed." which is the daily flavors sent via e-mail!!!
Not only do they have amazing Gelato & Sorbetto, they brew single cup coffee the old fashioned way. It's "Wicked Joe's Coffee" which is Maine made, grinded fresh for your cup of coffee, oh man...if you lke a good cup of coffee- this is where its at!!!
if you go to the gelato Fiasco, you will not be dissapointed!

“Very hip and inviting dessert place...”
Reviewed November 6, 2009

...the seating, the lighting, the flooring, the cleanliness, and the overall atmosphere is great. It feels like a more authentic version of a nice Starbuck's, but with an unbelievable array of gelatos and sorbettos (non-dairy frozen product), made from great ingredients. The staff is very friendly and attentive. This is a very popular place, and for good reason. Don't miss it when in Brunswick, especially in the evening when the atmosphere is at its finest.

“Slightly pricey but very good food”
Reviewed February 10, 2009

Excellent ambience, comfortable couches and chairs. I have not had the coffee there but I imagine it would go be a nice place for it as well. The gelato is the star of the show, and there are well over a dozen flavors to choose from. The workers never seem to mind you taking your time and sampling different flavors. I recommend the mint chocolate chip or the cake batter gelato.
