Lots of selection, but the favors are not vibrant. Out of all the gelato rials in San Diego, this is my least favorite. It doesn't taste fresh, the sorbetto doesn't taste like fresh fruit. Tastes closer to ice cream than true Italian gelato/sorbetto. Try Bobboi...More

Bubby's is tucked away in the middle of The Lumberyard Shops along the historic 101. They offers amazingly rich gelato that is perfect for both young and old, along with a small menu of sandwhiches and lunch time fair.

We had a very enjoyable dessert. There were many flavors to choose from. I had the expresso chip. It was very flavorful and creamy. My husband and nephew liked theirs too. The server let me sample and was friendly,
