I'm sorry that I only discovered it on the last day. I thought it was the only one but found out that there are more stores. A must visit for any Gelato lover.

This place offers plenty of interesting flavors! Friendly servers, relatively quiet on a Saturday afternoon.

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,

specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
