I always look forward to the changing selection of taste treats at GF. Two days ago, I went in quickly to buy some Wicked Joe's coffee and could not resist tasting the chocolate covered orange gelato. I have been looking forward to my return visit ever since. I know I will discover yet another flavor that will bring me back... More

Extensive selection of house made sorbet or gelato you can sample to choose. Fresh brewed individually ground coffee is a fine accompaniment. Comfy seating. A gathering place.

We have been going to this location since the beginning and we have never bee disapponted. Novel new flavor added to old favorites so each visit is a surprse.

Friendly staff, scooping divinity. Even though there was a line, there was always someone to offer a taste. The flavors were varied and delicious

The four of us stopped by Gelato Fiasco this past weekend and, once again, the gelato was simply delicious. While their prices are not inexpensive, their extensive choice of flavors is worth every penny.

We were in Brunswick for a weekend and went to Gelato Fiasco twice. Once for a late night treat long after a light supper and again to have gelato instead of lunch. We were fortunate that it wasn't crowded either time. We loved the gelato though it's a bit sweeter than ice cream and there were so many flavored flavors... More

Waited far too long for mediocre gelato. The presentation and selection are impressive, but I was disappointed by the actual flavors - muted - and the service was disorganized (though friendly). Wouldn't go back.
