“Great Gelato”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

We haven't had gelato this good since Italy. It is a bit pricy, but after first bite, we didn't care. 24 flavors.....I had honey, ginger lemon. My new favorite. Right next door to Annie's Island burgers, had gelato for dessert and picked up some equally awesome fresh pastry for breakfast. Highly recommend!

“Good Gelato”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Enjoyed the Gelato but was a bit pricing. The coconut and mango flavors were really good. Bit difficult to find near Annie's burgers.

“Yum! What's not to love!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This shop had a great variety of gelato flavors to choose from as is easily seen from the street. Delicious! To be honest, the Italian speaking man gave me more gelato in my cup than the young lady. Lucky me!

“Neat little bakery, crepe and gelato cafe”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We were stumbling around and looking for a place to catch brunch. In this part of rural Hawaii, most places don't open till 10 or 11 am. But we looked in the window of this one placed that looked promising but, alas, closed. As we were walking away, a guy comes out of the store and says, I don't open till 11 but come on in and I take care of you. Wow.

So we did and he made a couple eggs in crepes with some other fancy things in there and fixed us up with one of the best breakfast dishes in a long time.

He served 100% Kona coffee and we bought some pastries to take back to the condo.

We may go back tomorrow morning.

“Great after dinner”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Good food, fun people, a worthwhile stop along the highway. We only stopped by for dessert but everything looked wonderful and the choice of dessert was made even harder by trying out a few samples.
