“Yummy gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

I didn't think the gelato was authentic Italian gelato, but it was definitely a delicious Maine version! The staff was very friendly and let us sample many flavors (unlimited samples) and take our time deciding on what to order. The flavors I did decide on (which was strawberries and cookies and a Maine blueberry crisp) were delicious.

“Great Ice Cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

The choice of flavors is amazing and all that we tried were delicious. (maybe 6) It wasn't like Italian gelato, but it was delicious ice cream. There seems to be a trend in Maine for homemade ice cream. We found several on our trip.

“The Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

The quality of gelato, the unique and delicious flavors, the fresh ingredients, make this a must stop in Brunswick. My favorite flavors were the Maple Sap Tap and the Espresso chip. I love that there are four different sizes, and one is small (which is nice for a change). Also, you can make your bowl a combination of flavors if you can't decide.

“"Tasty sweet treat,convenient location"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Pleasantly surprised to find the gelato cafe open after our show at the college! Loved trying all the flavors. Difficult to choose. Decided on 3 of my favorites. A small was plenty. Staff very friendly. Open late even midweek! A popular place, understandably so as all were quite good.
