Delicious gelato! It's a smaller space, but the staff works quickly to get you served. Generous portions and delicious coffee too!

Huge selection of flavors, staff friendly and helpful. Unlike their competition across the street, staff quickly accommodated requests to mix any number of flavors into any size cup, including the smallest! Perfect combination of delicious and friendly, we'll be back!
