We had a very enjoyable dessert. There were many flavors to choose from. I had the expresso chip. It was very flavorful and creamy. My husband and nephew liked theirs too. The server let me sample and was friendly,

I am an x-fan I am so sorry to say. I went in with a friend a few days ago and was treated by a lovely woman who was super friendly. I tried a few types of gelato but the truth is we were headed to a chocolate store near for a piece of chocolate. We went to the other store and unfortunately they also had gelato,

My husband and I are traveling in the San Diego area and wanted gelato. We went on line for some reviews and came up with Bubby's in Encinitas. I ordered a chocolate fudge from a surly woman and my husband ordered chocolate chip. The gelato had absolutely no taste -- flavorless. My husband's was vanilla with chocolate chips -- the chips tasted like chocolate. The reviews on this place were so high that I thought "How could we miss?" Apparently, the reviewers have never had REAL GELATO (in Rome, for instance -- but many places have real and true flavored gelato.) Not this place! Give it a miss.

This place has been here for 24 years. Close waling distance from our hotel. Great tasting Gelatos and Pannins.

The gelato was okay but grumpy lady would not honor my kids request for a blue spoon. What the deal with one skimpy napkin each when bringing two kids. Neither of my kids finished their small cup.
