Gelato is very good and was a delight initially. The vegan-friendly option is also worth mentioning. Yet other emerging issues warrant serious consideration toward product and service value. For example, the cup may sometimes be leveled off across the top. As the cup is wide but very shallow, you end up with a much less-than-filling product for what you pay. Depending on which employee is serving you or if you come in late to the shop, they may be about to run out and want to maximize the supply at your expense. Another inconsistency is the availability of a pint size you could take home and later enjoy. So you will need to spend much more for what you need as compared to the competition which has pints ready to go out the door.

Oddly enough, you can find outdoor seating nearby, but there is no indoor seating at all. Also, there is no frequent-buyer offer so customer loyalty is not rewarded here. You can't do but so much with ice cream and there is a ton of competition. So good treat for business passer-byres or nearby local residents who can walk over.

Fantastic Service & friendly staff with a decent vegan selection. Vegan gelato does magically appear on occasion.

We love this place! My daughter wants to make a deal that we'll go twice a week. I'm going to get really fat because every time I go I can't help but order a small gelato. You can have two flavors with a small cup, which is more than enough - it's very rich! My favorite flavor so far is Stracciatella (vanilla with chocolate shavings). There are different flavors every time we go. Can't wait for our next visit!

We had dinner down at Luna Maya and some friends told us about Strawberry Fields so we had to go. Ever since our visit to Italy a couple of years ago, we've become a true gelato fan. This place is quite small, but the gelato was great. This is a nice addition to the Ghent area and we'll be back!

This is a new gelato and smoothie place in Ghent and it is good! They put the flavors on their Facebook page but when a flavor runs out, there may be a different flavor made based on the availability of fruit.
