Simply the best gelato you can find in all of the South India! It could even compete with the gelato in Italy thanks to its extremely fine texture, unusually creative flavors and special attention to the healthy aspect of ice cream.
Service is welcoming, warm and attentive.

The best natural icecream I have had for a long time. The cafe offers a wide selection of vegan flavours as well as traditional ones. Try the orange chocolate one, mouth watering. Highly recommended!

Here you can have the real experience of Italian ice cream. Especially the huge selection of vegan ice cream is a winner. I especially love coconut and vegan chocolate. Also the atmosphere inside is nice. Very tranquil and at a good warm temperature to eat ice cream. The prices are high for South India ranging from 40-80 INR per scoop and the menu is slightly confusing because it lists the price for two scoops, though one scoop is possible and for me enough.

I liked the ice cream and sandwiches. Sandwiches are true a delight being made from freshly plucked basil and vegetables.
The owners were helpful and made sure customers are looked after well.

Wide range of mouth watering flavors. The aromas beckons you from outside the shop itself. They have an amazing variety and it’s difficult for one to decide one. Delicious and finger looking good.
