The staff at Harlans make the best of the best chocolate goodies and their array of licorice is amazing. Buy a big bag of the soft licorice; it is so good.

The gelato in the window caught our attention. Both us an the kids received a large and delicious potion of our favourite flavors. Obviously there are also many selections of chocolate as well, but the gelato was well worth it after having great fresh pasta just up the street.

What could possibly be wrong here? First, they make incredible chocolate organic, local FABulous! But say it's a hot day (which it was when I last went there) and you've been strolling all over ganges looking at the Saturday market and other stores and you would like something cold to sit down with?

This candy and gelato shop has wonderful gelato. The salted caramel gelato is the best of its kind I've ever enjoyed. It's very hard to get the salt ratio right in this in vogue flavor, but they get it exactly right here. All the gelato is organic, so indulge with some sense of simultaneous virtue!

Gelato favors were uninspiring and lacked flavor. Staff was extra nice. No place to sit while eating or waiting for rest of family.

The gelato is an excellent addition to anyone's day! Or we picked it up to take home to add to our dessert. The Salted Carmel was awesome with a bit of dark chocolate. Yum!
