Just popped in for a gelato and found a dozen or more varied and interesting flavours, such as Baileys tiramisu, apple pie, a well as the more traditional ones. They let us sample a few before serving us a huge single scoop. Excellent flavours, big servings, friendly staff; at $4.50 a scoop it was how it should be.

This place is amazing. My wife and I come here often, and they have a great, ever-changing selection of ice creams and sorbets. My favourites are the pistachio (really nutty, almost almondy, not like any other pistachio ice cream I've had) and the stracciatella. My wife loves their sorbets, and they have a wide selection - usually 6-10 of them,... More

Brilliant little cafe located at the Main Street entrance to Downtown. The perfect spot for a dessert fix, whether it be before or after the movies or a treat to end your day. Great selection of Gelato icecreams in a variety of fresh flavours. Definitely worth a visit.

Chocolate is a nice wee place for a stop off drink or treat. The gelato is delicious and always a variety of a flavours fruity and milk based. 4.50 for a single scoop which is quite reasonably sized so a good price. The hot chocolates are amazing also! Proper chocolate used and can scoop it out the mug at the... More

It took about 5 minutes to be served as no one was at the counter and didn't turn up for a while after I rang the bell. Selection of flavours was great but the texture of the gelato was very odd and actually made me feel sick all afternoon. $6 for two scoops or very average gelato...Wouldn't go back.

Loved the belgian hot chocolates and the gelato. I think the gelato is overpriced though and the sweet treats look quite plasticky. Ive tried the cheesecake before and it wasnt much to be desired. The waffle cones dipped in choc are really nice :)
