How I heard of this place: Attracted to the logo of a goat on its back, I was drawn to the homemade gelateria for some time. But now, it has become the place to go for creamy iced concoctions with Ellie!
Type of cuisine: Gelato. In the winter they were also serving Italian pastries, but it seems that the gelato has become so popular and time-consuming that the owners have chosen to narrow the focus for the summer…and then see how it goes.
Ambiance: Sparse. Four or five small tables line the wall and inner, front, corner windows. One leather couch and coffee table sits amidst the tables. The walls are yellow, bright and warm – a welcome sun-shiny feel for a cloudy, rainy end-of-May evening. The gelato selections, handmade with organic milk and sugar locally are presented just as you would expect to see them on the small Italian strade.
What I ordered: Ellie and I took advantage of our three free samples before placing our order. Despite the usual bustle of the mom ‘ pop shop, we had the space (almost) to ourselves and could do this! I sampled the raspberry creme, avocado and espresso. Ellie sampled the tiramisu, raspberry creme and coconut. I settled on two half-scoops ($3.50) including raspberry creme and chocolate. Ellie couldn’t pass up the chocolate, either, so her two half-scoops consisted of chocolate and espresso.
What I loved: The combination of the flavors was amazing! In both the espresso-chocolate and the raspberry creme-chocolate (which was the baristas recommendation). But I have to say, if it wasn’t already six in the evening, for those of us who are highly affected by caffeine, the espresso chocolate would be the way to go!
Why I loved it: The place is cozy and comforting. The gelato creamy and full of flavor, without being too sweet. Everything about this small cafe sends out the vibes of a warm embrace; what’s not to love about that?
Cost: Average ($3.50-$5.50 for fancy gelato)
