Must stop into this fantastic gelato spot! The gelato was among the best I have ever had. Friendly folks working, and some great spaces to sit and enjoy your treat! A great find on the Downtown Mall.

Go for the gelato, but the real treat is the thick, creamy hot chocolate. Splendora is perfect on a hot day or a cool winter evening. Take the family, go with friends and always have a great time.

Good variety of flavors, I went with the salted caramel and dulce de leche. Plenty of seating. Patient and friendly staff who didn't mind our repeated request or indecisiveness. A must stop when walking the street!

This is a small piece of heaven. Grab a cone or dish and go back outside to walk the Downtown mall. With over 20 flavors, you will surely find a new favorite! I loved the Basil Panna Cotta. My daughter loved her Goat Cheese Honey...More

What can I say. I usually get chocolate and raspberry--two scoops and it is plenty for me. I have have other flavors and they are of equal quality--good. We seem to end up here at the end of the evening for that sweet treat finish.

Looking for a refreshing cold one before continuing your stroll down the historic mall, stop here and get an gelato or ice cream. You'll be ready to continue your trek. We sat outisde and did a bit of people watching while eating our ice cream.
