Quickly attended to & so yummy! I recommend the rosewater limeade gelato. It's sooooo refreshing on a warm sunny day. The portions are appropriate, not too big or small. U can have it in a waffle cone instead of a cup. They also offer coffees & other drinks.

The gelato is reasonable priced and the upstairs has lots of room to sit down and enjoy. They had many flavors to make the entire family happy.

Great coffee and baked goods. Relaxed atmosphere. Customer seating upstairs where you can work or talk without other customers clamoring for your piece of real estate

I lived in the DMV for several years and this was a weekly treat. I would travel from Alexandria just to get my fix! I was so excited the other day while in Louisville KY to discover Whole Foods carries their gelato! You must try their blood orange sorbet or any of the flavors with cardamom. It's so refreshing and... More

I got the honeycrisp apple and Thai coconut flavors of gelato. The honeycrisp was really great. Service was fine. We enjoyed sitting at their sidewalk tables. For two small scoops of gelato, it was about $5.50, plus tax.

The place is not as nice as the one in Fairfax and it does not look very well cleaned. Also, the temperature of the gelato seems to be too low as the bitter chocolate was rather hard. Apart from that, same good gelato quality as in Fairfax, but the shop was not so clean and the server was rather uninformed.... More

Yes, this place is more known for their delicious gelato. But coming from the PacNW (and inherently a coffee snob), this is one of the few DC metro places that serve coffee from Stumptown - a Portland and PacNW favorite. Definitely worth a quick side trip when you're looking for more than Starbux. (They also have a limited selection of... More

Needed a cup of coffee and came across this place after dinner. Had the vanilla latte which was just about perfect. If you're nearby, don't waste your time at a national chain but support a local business because the quality of coffee doesn't even compare. Cookie was also excellent.
