Excellent location. Great taste and options. Clean and relaxing environment. Close to shopping and site seeing in and around the Old Port. A must try/visit when in Portland Maine. Coffee is another great option here too.

European style, intense flavors, high quality gelato. Great selection so it is hard to choose. We tried the strawberry, dark chocolate, mint and a cookies flavor that were all delicious. Perfect stop for a treat.
