    Many unique gelato flavors, some light food offerings, coffee, comfortable seating, and live music on the weekends!

    Great atmosphere, quiet (at least in Sunday afternoon), good coffee.

    Terrific gelato. Try the salted caramel, pineapple basil, Chilean peach, or coconut. Better deal to get two scoops and split with a friend, even if you only want one scoop.

    Derek Fromson · August 17, 2014
  • Gabe V.

    The menu is ever changing with a couple of staples. I reccomend trying everything once.

    Coffee here is great! Why go to Northside Social and fight for a table, when you can relax in the lovely "living room" atmosphere here?

    Erin Graziani · March 7, 2014
  • Valya S.

    Minty oreo latte is the best coffee thing I have ever had! You must try gelatos - will never find anything like this in the world!

    Valya Shygirt · September 16, 2013

    The salted caramel gelato is the bomb!

    David Robertson · September 4, 2013

    Small seating area but it's really cozy. They sell (and brew?) Stumptown coffee and have flat whites / cortados on the menu!

    Roshan Sadanani · September 2, 2013

    They sell Julia's Empanadas here! The Saltenas is the best one! ☺

    One of the grt gelato, second best after I had it in forums mall las Vegas. Pistachio rocks

    They keep the dining, sitting area uncomfortably cold. Friends and I also spotted a mouse up on the rafters.

    The salted caramel is HEAVY on the salt. Wouldn't recommend it unless you have a taste for salty hot milk.

    Nutella latte is great!

    During the winter be sure to dress warmly if you'll be staying for any length of time. It is freezing in here!

    What's better than a milkshake? A geltao shake!

    I'm a mint chocolate chip guy myself (for ice cream and gelato) but their chocolate coffee flavor is pretty on point too.. Good espressos too

    Cyrus Roepers · July 8, 2012

    Their Nutella Lattes are literally the greatest thing ever.

    Courtney Arzu · May 5, 2012

    As a coffee afficiando I can say that this is the best coffee shop around. I also highly reccomend ther hot chocolate.

    Courtney Arzu · April 15, 2012
  • Sarah O.

    The Beef empenada is the best one. If the Bourbon Vanilla & Raisin gelato is available, take it! Totally delish!

    Sarah O · April 14, 2012
  • Megan P.

    Great gelato. The toasted almond iced tea was pretty good too. Awesome home-y feel -- definitely stop in!

    They accept check cards now. They swipe it through an iPad. There is an ATM in the store if you'd like to use cash.

    Grab some Stumptown as either espresso or pour over, then get a bag to take home.

    DistrictBean · July 4, 2011

    I would avoid the mint chocolate chip. Get the banana flavor.

    TJ Gioconda · May 28, 2011

    Gelato great! Coffee inconsistent depends on Barista. Service is great. Keep clear of the Manager/owner he seems to be upset most evenings.

    Foodie Critic · July 31, 2010
  • Alicia G.

    Get the pineapple basil. You won't regret it.

    Alicia G · June 6, 2010
