Citizen Cake's Caramel Fleur de sel gelato

Is very nice. I wasn't even interested in that flavor and the guy at the counter insisted I try it. Yowza.

People never mention Citizen Cake when mentioning gelato, but I've always liked them. Don't know how long the caramel fleur de sel will be there as flavors change frequently, but I highly recommend it if you like caramels with fleur de sel. It adds another dimension of icy to the sweet/salty/creamy taste ... and it won't remove fillings.

They have a lovely honey tangerine and a pretty blood orange ice. I like their sorbets or whatever they are called because they have the soft consistancy of an east coast lemon ice. The honey tangerine was a little sweet, but had a true honey tangerine taste. The blood orange was true to the flavor as well as the color. They also had bergamot ice, but to me it didn't have much flavor.

The servings were really generous as well, something that really surprised me. I was really after sorbet so I settled on two scoops - honey tangerine & blood orange (I am having caramel fleur de sel regret as I write this). Anyway it almost filled a little pint-sized carton.

Finally tried one of the cupcakes - vanilla. It had pretty little white choolate shavings that looked like straws in the vamila icing. I really liked the cake, the frosting was a little more whipped and lite than I like it. Nice enough to give the other types (lemon, carrot, chocolate) a try on future visits.

To my taste they come in fourth behind La Farine, Fat Apple and Delassio. That vanilla cake part is exactly the taste I'm looking for in a birtday cake.
