“A most unusual gelato establishment ”

We dropped in here after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and - they were almost all correct! The gelato is delicious - smooth and rich; some of the best we've had anywhere. They have over 500 flavors which they rotate through, with 18 in the case at any one time. While there are the usual standards, they encourage you to try anything that you'd like ("It's free ice cream!" the server said), and that gives one a chance to try something you wouldn't normally encounter, such as the fried chicken gelato (in honor of Oktoberfest), which was surprisingly good. After we made our decisions - a scoop each of two different flavors - the server urged us each to try a taste of yet a third flavor ("You get this neat plastic spoon!") and he stuck that taste on top of everything else.

Christmas songs were being piped in as background music, so we asked if that was usual. No, the server said; he had just felt that, as it was an unusually cold day (in September), he felt like Christmas.

It's a fun place, with an Alice-in-Wonderland motif, and if you're in the mood for some high quality gelato served with humor and kindness, you should check it out.

The ice cream there is delicious, and served at an okay price; it's nice that they let you try some "crazy" flavour on top of your order, so just go ahead and try anything, it's a unique experience!

There is good icecream in the world but this place makes very creative flavours. Try out a few flavours before you order. Yum yum

Some truly great and unconventional flavors that still complement each other perfectly, helpful and friendly staff, and last but not least, an awesome artistic atmosphere ... definitely a "must-visit" place!

Such a wonderful place! Please do yourself a favor and go there--there is no other place to get the delicious and refreshing beer gelato anywhere else. The champagne and pink panda were also delightfully delicious!
