I stopped by Cafe Maida on Butler Avenue last night, eager to try the new addition to our neighborhood. It was really cute, a bit sparse because they just opened a few days ago but it has nice tables and big windows for people watching, cases full of italian cookies and pastries, and, my favorite, gelato. I had 2 scoops of gelato - strawberry balsalmic and chocolate, great combination. We sampled a bunch of ther flavors - pistachio was great too. Everything was served in cute glass dishes. The coffee smelled great., can't wait to try it. Its a nice family run local place, I definitely plan to go back. I heard they offer paninis and other lunch items.
We seem to have a plethora of panini and gelato places in Ambler, but thats not necessarily a bad thing :) Toto's on Main Street is still my favorite gelato (I dream of their Donatella gelato), but Cafe Maida is really good and that strawberry balsalmic gelato was great (especially with the chocolate).
