The place does not feel as tidy and well-loved as it once was. The basic flavours of gelato seem to have disappeared and we are left with a fusion of kid-like creations.

This little gem serves great coffee, with a european flair as there's a lovely bite of chocolate on the side. The gelato is amazing, and staff are always friendly.
