I have a (density-related) preference of gelato over ice cream and they do a good job with that. Coffee (no chain-ish funny-named concoctions here) satisfies in that just-good-coffee way. Not so crazy on the pastries somehow although I tried everything, or the paninis - when even your boring work cafeteria whips up better (and twice as stuffed) orders, that's kind of a problem. Always great service (no zoned-out kiddies behind the counter helps). Have visited since nearly a year ago - gelato over live jazz on a Summer night, outside, anyone? —ChristineLeo

I love the idea of a place like this, would love it more if they actually made the pastries/gelato in house. But that's just me. —MarcVera
