  • Wifi password is the phone number. Grab a business card by the register. All numbers. No dashes.
  • Its name is a misnomer. You may come for the gelato, but you'll come back for the coffee. Cappuccinos are top quality; they also have quality pour over options.
  • LOVED my affogato with salted caramel gelato. What a way to start a vacation!
  • Wow- salted caramel gelato for the win!
  • If you're early enough, get an alfajor! Just like your (Argentine) grandmother makes them!
  • Best gelato and some of the best coffee in DC
  • Salted caramel is divine and chocolate is rich and wonderful.
  • The coffee is to die for. As is the maple walnut gelato! Love this place. Save up for a bit as its pricey.
  • Frozen yogurt what?!? It's all about gelato! The pistachio is to die for! I wanna bathe in it.
  • Oh Josh, I'm ready to oust you on this one!
  • DELICIOUS sorbet. Try the pink grapefruit. The kids' size is plenty, only $3.50
  • Try an iced latte on a warm summer evening, they are delish.
  • Get a small cup with two flavors, also try the alfajores !
  • I definitely recommend the tiramisu gelato. Try the multiple flavored sorbettos: they're absolutely amazing. The avocado, honey and orange is a real treat.
  • Lovely atmosphere, some of the best coffee in DC (aren't a lot around) and free wifi (2022999116).
  • Fantastic espresso and gelato and free wifi (2022999116)
  • I have yet to taste a flavor I didn't like
  • Excellent coffee made with care.
