    Nutella is a signature flavor at this charming North Beach gelateria. Take a cup to go and enjoy it in Washington Square Park. Read more

    Mostly seasonal flavors. My favorites are guavasteen (only Nov-Feb), young coconut (year-round but not always available), semifreddi's biscotti (also year-round, almost always available).

    Blue Bottle Hayes Valley + Blue Bottle Mocha gelato = Blue Bottle heaven. I love this place for their large assortment of flavors. It may not be the traditional NB cafe but top on my gelateria list.

    Recchiuti Burnt Caramel is the most popular flavor (They say it's the best in the nation!) Nocciola is my fav though. Make sure to bring cash! ;)

    The caramel gelato is beautifully balanced. Remember you can get two flavors in your order so try at least one new one.

    Always look in the case to see what they have. And the cool little trinkets they "pair" with each flavor.
