Very good gelato, cups should be larger to hold the scoops, samples available. Good place to cool off.

We discovered Splendora years ago and we keep going back. This trip we only had time for one visit but it was worth it. Enjoy!

Must stop into this fantastic gelato spot! The gelato was among the best I have ever had. Friendly folks working, and some great spaces to sit and enjoy your treat! A great find on the Downtown Mall.

Good variety of flavors, I went with the salted caramel and dulce de leche. Plenty of seating. Patient and friendly staff who didn't mind our repeated request or indecisiveness. A must stop when walking the street!

This is a small piece of heaven. Grab a cone or dish and go back outside to walk the Downtown mall. With over 20 flavors, you will surely find a new favorite! I loved the Basil Panna Cotta. My daughter loved her Goat Cheese Honey...More
