I was very impressed with the flavors of gelato offered. I had baby ginger, something with fig in it, and a spicy cocoa (and, yes, it was spicy!).

Lots of flavors, delicious gelato, and friendly staff. We always enjoy going to Split Banana! You can also order coffee to go along with dessert.

Lots of choices in flavors. Mine were so good I had to get another scoop! And that scoop was discounted. The ice cream ranks right up there with THE best! Way better than chains. It's an old timey place. I totally recommend a stop there!
