Sonny's has closed! This outstanding Gel lotto location that later expanded it's offerings to include light menu offerings is no more. It has been replaced with a beer and some food offerings spot.

Gelato is made at this local spot. You can sit outside under umbrellas. The selection is huge and you can also get some interessting coffee.

I have been here on multiple occasions. The food is always good but takes a long time to come out once ordered. As long as you are not in a rush it's great.

While they have food here, this is the place to go for gelato. It is the best gelato I have tasted in so many flavors. So skip the frozen yogurt places and head here for a really good desert.

Great little lunch spot. Had a great sandwich and bread was amazing! The sandwiches had plenty of meat which is main reason I keep returning! Also their spinach artichoke dip is really good!

We have been to Sonny's a few times and their Gelato is just average. The gelato has a nice creaminess to it, but some flavors are a bit bland (stracciatella, cannoli) and others are much tastier (Nutella, chocolate). They do have nice outdoor seating, but the place always seems dirty. They definitely need more than 2 people staffing the restaurant... More

Ate here for lunch. Food was really good-some surprising items also. Large portions. I would eat there again for sure. Mainly outdoor seating so maybe not the best during the summer months in Florida but it is all shaded seating. Also had to get Gelato which was delicious of course.

We searched for a place that was open at 8:30 at night to get some gelato and found Sonny's. We ate some there and took some home. It was real good. Their cannoli was better than cannoli kitchen.

This is a must stop for us whenever we are in town. Cozy spot with plenty of outdoor seating. They serve food as well, but we've always just made this a dessert stop. Some good baked items & coffees too. But the Gelato is the star here. Many, many interesting flavors, all equally as good. My only suggestion is that... More
