How I heard of this place: My friend Bayan introduced me to the gelato shop up the road when the “Gelato Nazi” in West Vancouver had not opened.
Type of cuisine: Cafe fare, with gelato, pastries and espresso beverages.
Ambiance: Cafe-esque with a limited number of tables and chairs inside and outside. Dark wooden floor and walls, with a large, glass, display for the gelato. Not overdone or underdone, simple decor creates an uncluttered and easy space.
What I ordered: We arrived, eagerly anticipating the toasted marshmallow gelato and were sad to find that it was not one of the days flavors. After sampling a number of flavors from black sesame to Reese, lemon, to coffee break, truffle and …I ended up with one child-sized scoop ($3.25) of coffee break and my dining companion ordered one child-sized scoop of cookies and cream (with chocolate gelato).
What I loved: I loved the chocolate chunks in the coffee break and the decorative waffle triangles placed into each cup of gelato before being served.
Why I loved it: The proximity of the cafe to other shops and amenities is great! A good spot to stop for an afternoon sweet treat as you run errands or entertain a friend.
Cost: Average ($3-$5 depending on the number of scoops of gelato)
