This place is wonderful! All of their gelato is locally made and tastes extremely fresh! We thoroughly enjoyed all the flavors we tried. Our favorites were the Smooth Macadamia Nut and the Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter! We definitely plan to return.

Enjoyed the raspberry gelato. Nice patio area to enjoy the great gelato. Large portions, reasonable prices but most of all enjoyed the staff and their welcoming shop.
