Strolling down Park Avenue this place is a real find. You'd think it was an art gallery, but they actually serve the best gelato in town.

I stopped by for some dessert this past Saturday and had a very pleasant visit. The man with no shoes who served me (yes...he still was barefoot in the ice cream shop) was very pleasant, and he helped me as I browsed through the art/jewelry gallery attached to the shop. I did enjoy the ice cream, but I too question... More

Stopped in for a gelato. Interesting place. Part African art (mostly masks), part jewelry store (some amazing, unique, pricey pieces), part coffee/cake/gelato cafe. There is plenty of seating, though we were the only ones there on a Saturday evening. The gelato was delicious, unique flavors. I see this being a nice, late night place to stop after the theater, but... More

A bit pricey, but their gelato has nice, non-fake flavors, and you can savor eat sitting out the sidewalk and taking in the view of the lively Park Avenue,

Upon entering we were greeted by a very pleasant, friendly young lady...she answered my wife and son's questions and encouraged the taste testing of flavors that my wife and son were curious about...My wife decided on a combination strawberry/raspberry dish...As the young lady reached...

I had stopped by the place once before to look at the African Art for a gift for a family member and while I didn't find what I wanted, I did enjoy looking at some the items they had on display. These are some unique items that you will not find at too many places in Rochester. I was eating... More

Be aware that the hours posted on their website and their doors may not reflect their actual opening/closing times. As of yesterday, stated summer hours for the Schoen Place location are 8am-10pm. But when I tried to stop in last night for dessert at 9:15, all of the doors were locked, even though the signs on all of them clearly... More

Review is for the cafe only. I've been to the cafe a number of times for their gelato. Located on park ave this is one of the desert places open later than others if you are looking for something sweet. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. I usually choose to sit outside or take a walk down park ave... More
