No, seriously. Amazing sugar free chocolate ice cream, even people who poo-poo sugar-free love this stuff! The other flavours are great too. Service is always great and if you want to try a new flavour they will give you a taste. Location isn't the best...More

very good selection of Gelato...there is also lots available to take out. Coolers on the right as you walk in go direct there if it's busy...Check out the small cooler beside the register for some carry out treats marked down

You might come for the various flavours of sorbet, gelatti and ice cream...but you might also try the ice cream cakes and the variety of frozen deliciousness. The pear and green tea ice creams are very yummy and beautifully designed.
