An outpost of the gelato chain; somewhat comparable in quality to Scoop. On the whole the gelati had a thicker creamier consistency compared to the more lightly textured ones at Scoop. Still very smooth and seamless.

Vanilla has a class basic vanilla flavour, but not as fragrant/floral as Scoop's.

Coffee was excellent, a true milky coffee flavour.

Pistachio was indeed nutty, less of the greener pistachio flavour, and more of toasted pistachio.

Ecuadorian chocolate was solid, a pleasant deep choc flavour, with all the right fruity, nutty and woodsy notes.

Marron glace/chestnut had a good sweet chestnut flavour with a hint of powdery chestnut in the texture.

Worth checking out, potentially a decent rival to Scoop. I like Scoop a tiny bit more for the slightly more elegant texture, and some of the flavours might be a hint more pronounced at Scoop, but it's hard to say without a side by side comparison.

They also sell coffee drinks, chocolates, jams, Italian biscuits, balsamic vinegar and other little bites.
