How I heard of this place: A couple of years ago, I had driven past the Fainting Goat and decided I needed to try it, solely based on the clever logo (a goat, upside down).
Type of cuisine: While the owners baked fresh pastries throughout the winter, in the summer, they realized that the draw was gelato. They changed their focus and have lines out the door awaiting the amazing flavors of creamy gelato which lie within.
Ambiance: Small, cozy and a feeling of being at home. The space has limited seating, but among those four tables is one perfect for children, offering child-sized stools alongside. It is a bustling space, without seeming too loud or full of the noise which can sometimes be found in similar chain/franchise ice cream shops.
What I ordered: I could not pass up a healthy scoop of Nutella ($2-$3), topped with dark chocolate-hazelnut chunks. My dining companion ordered two half-scoops in a bowl ($2-$3) including salted caramel and espresso.
What I loved: All of the creamy, wintery flavors were perfect on this occasion, but something about the thick and not-too-sweet Nutella had me won. The espresso, while delicious and just like the real thing, probably had enough caffeine to keep me up, otherwise, it would have easily been my favorite!
Why I loved it: I love the feel of the family-owned and operated Fainting Goat. The selection of gelato great and the names of options true to flavor. You can trust that you will enjoy something simple, homemade and full of amazing flavor!
Cost: Average ($3 for a single, large scoop of gelato)
