This is an excellent spot for coffee. The servers are great and the coffee is delicious. We were in Niagara on the Lake for two days and when we needed coffee this was the place we went.

I never fail to stop in here when in NOTL. Great gelato and sorbetto, an excellent variety for nearly all palates.

Great experience and fabulous gelato. I had the pistachio and their award winning flavor... sorry but I can’t remember it’s name. Ask for Marco... he packs a mean bowl and remember to show your Shaw tickets to get 10 percent off

The gelato is some of the best I have ever had, including that which we loved in Italy. The lemon and cherry are my favorites but every flavor looks amazing! By the end of the week, we will try to enjoy all of the flavors....More

Ciao Norm900. We know the pizzeria/trattoria you are talking. It was not us but a Napolitano called Maurizio who opened this. He has an openly visible wood oven and the pizza is REAL NAPLES pizza. He also has other trattoria... More

A bar cafe type latteria that promises you gelato the way it was meant to be! We offer everything from gelato and sorbetto and specialty coffees such as cappuccino and espresso, to gelato cakes and gelato biscotto sandwiches, mini-cones and gelato on a stick. We use an an organic base imported from Italy and add to it reverse osmosis water, organic cream and milk, grape sugar (NOT white sugar), organic off-white raw cane sugar, locally grown fruits and more. We believe our product is more than 80% organic. Our suppliers in Italy use diverse fruits such as Alfonso Mangoes from Bombay, soft-flesh coconuts from Sri Lanka, to pistachios from Bronte, Sicily, and hazelnuts from Piemonte, Italy. Yes, we also offer gluten free cones and our sorbettos are dairy free.In the summer, we use Niagara grown peaces, apricots, plums, strawberry, etc. We also use other fresh fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, lemon, pineapple, avocado, watermelon, etc. For our sorbettos.
