The cappuccino I ordered here was perfect. Another evening during our D.C. visit we stopped in for gelato. We sampled a few and each was fantastic, so good it was hard to choose a flavor. A bit pricey, but a nice special (and delicious) treat!

Although a little pricey, the gelato and sorbets were light and sweet. The coconut and pineapple combination was like a pina colada. It was a perfect treat while shopping in the area.

Stopped by after visiting the Hirshorn for some chocolate gelato! Yummy! I wish there was one by my house. Cute outdoor seating area to enjoy your coffee and gelato.

I am dairy-free due to a dairy allergy, so the sorbetto at this shop was a fun find. They had some great flavors (mojito, peach southern comfort (has alcohol), grapefruit, lime, etc). They let you try all you want and then they give you two...More
