    You can get an awesome breakfast in the same spot you can get delectable gelato. Don't forget the sticky buns! Pass up Starbucks for this neighborhood gem and thank me later!

    Its name is a misnomer. You may come for the gelato, but you'll come back for the coffee. Cappuccinos are top quality; they also have quality pour over options.

    Best gelato I've had outside of Roma. Champagne mango, strawberry tequila, and lemon are the way to go, if they have them.

    I definitely recommend the tiramisu gelato. Try the multiple flavored sorbettos: they're absolutely amazing. The avocado, honey and orange is a real treat.

    Stumptown coffee, salted caramel gelato, and chocolate amargo are all highlights of this cozy little shop. Limited seating at window or central table.

    latte and alfajores make a perfect pair - with excellent playlist to linger longer! ham and cheese croissants are rich and yummy.

    I'd say it's been my spot for a while and being near the window makes it a better coffee experience! Good coffee makers in my list!

    The coffee is to die for. As is the maple walnut gelato! Love this place. Save up for a bit as its pricey.

    Delicious ice cream. But I don't like to be asked loud in front of other customers if I've paid or not when leaving when I was the only customer who followed the correct flow of order pay and pick up

    The Blueberry Lemon Thyme and Mango Habenero Lime, chico size, is an amaaaaaaaazing combination. Try not to eat it all before you're out of the long checkout line.

    Oh, this coffee is a delight. Stay away from the almond croissants, sadly. Looks like Carnie Wilson sat on all of them. Guess that is what happens when you "wanna be impulsive...and restless."

    They don't burn the coffee or scald the milk, and you can taste the richness of both.
