This is our first stop whenever we go to Staunton VA. My wife was elated earlier this month to see sticky rice ice cream featured on th chalkboard out front since that is her favorite! I've liked every flavor I've tried especially maple.

We stumbled across The Split Banana and had a terrific desert in Staunton which we split between 2. It was the banana split, with a choice of gelato I couldn't fault. The price at under 10 bucks was money well spent.

This spot has amazing homemade gelato with an interesting array of flavors. The atmosphere is old school diner and there is a piano in the window that local college students wander in and play. The coffee is good and the servers are delightful.

Great place to get a variety of yummy gelato flavors. Most of their ingredients are provided fresh from the surrounding area. They even share on their menu board where their ingredients are from. Be sure to save room for dessert and stop by this location. It is within walking distance from the Stonewall Jackson Hotel.

We had bowls,cones and a banana split. Between the 6 of us we had several different flavors of their homemade ice cream and they were all very good. Only complaint was one of the berry flavors had lots of seeds.

Seriously, this is one of those places that we make sure to visit every time we are in Staunton. The Gelato is some of the best I have ever had and the cappuccinos are excellent, too. This is a don't miss spot.

Cool little place. Perfect stop on a hot summer day. Lots of flavor choices and even a sample if you need help choosing.

The gelatos, ice creams and sorbets are all very well done -- some with inventive flavors! Appreciate the use of locally source dairy, too!
