Family friendly Gelato, service was perfect. The shop had several families eating the Gelato, staff very friendly and accomodating. Offering suggestions and taste, not rushing anyone and keeping all happy. Definitely a place to go to and relax and cool down.

We stopped in for grilled cheese and gelato. Both were delicous. The owner is so lovely and accommodating and the vibe is wonderful....it feels like an Italian gelato shop.
