“Amazing Gelato and Pastries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Nina's has delicious, high quality Gelato. Be sure to try the Italian Vanilla, Ferrero Roche, Mango and Passion Fruit. They also have excellent pizza, crepes, macarons, and the chocolate croissants are to die for.

“Love the Gelato!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Really great gelato at Nina's! It's fairly expensive ($13 for a small and a medium gelato yesterday), but it's a case of quality over quantity. The staff are extremely nice: one went in the back to get me my favourite flavour, which was not on display, and another dealt with a grumpy customer really well. Seating is limited (only a couple of small tables), but a lot of people do get their orders to go, so not really a problem.
The lineup system could use a little improvement; when it's busy, it's chaotic, and you can't see the flavours until you're up at the case. Maybe a board listing the flavours would be helpful, and some stantions indicating where people should line up would be a good idea.

“Great Crepes and Gelatos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We had a ham and cheese crepe and it was large enough for two adults. The raspberry gelato was excellent. Everything is made on the premises.

I wish they had more seating. They only have seating for about 8 people. This can be a problem if you want to relax while you eat.

The bakery items looked out of this world!

“So good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

What a great little gem on Queen St! You can't help but stop in when you walk past and smell the aroma of cappuccino! I had the BEST almond croissant I've ever had, and the tastiest cappuccino. They really take their time making the drink, and you'll be glad they do! So much flavour! I unfortunately only got the croissant and cappuccino, but I KNOW i'll be back! The crepes, gelato, and pizza look delicious. I can't wait to return!!

“NOTL's secret gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

What a great place for a quick lunch stop! Pizza is very good too, in case you need something before the ice cream. Limited seating, but that's not really a problem since most customers are 'grab it and go!' Probably the most economical stop on Queen Street, along with quality products and a first rate staff. Can't wait to return.....
