We visited after dinner and there were only a few pastries left. Not the ones I would have chosen. We had the gelato. It was good. Next time I will get there after lunch for the better assortment of pastry.

This is an adorable bakery with delicious looking cupcakes and pastries, but every time I go, I have to get their gelato. They have lots of fun and funky flavors as well as some classics.

We were taking a walk around campus and I needed a latte...one of the best lattes ever at a reasonable price. They also have a selection of Numi tea, which is fantastic herbal tea. Someday I will have to return for gelato!

This has all the rage with cupcakes and sweet treats. The cake was disappointing but the gelato was quite good. I would not come back unless I was seeking out gelato. Too bad because it appeared to have much promise and hype.
