Mid day in PDC has no shade so an ice cream is the next best thing. Our server was obviously new but the service was fine

There are many all those located all over playa. In 5th Avenue alone we saw three or four locations. They have very good gelato with many unique flavours. We stopped for dessert three or four times during our trip and set out on their patios and enjoyed your delicious gelato.

1st stop on 5th Avenue... The staff was awesome, and let us try probably 10 different flavors before my kids decided on what they wanted. The Fresno (strawberry) is fabulous!!! I did one scoop with another of coconut. UMMMMMMM! They were priced rite, cheaper than gelato here in our hometown. Kids loved it :)

Our kids loved going here. We stopped almost every night of our trip. They give free samples and are very friendly. Prices are probably higher than other ice cream places because they only serve gelato.
