    Nice small spot located near St. Marks with various flavors of gelato. Their espresso drinks are great with their delicious pastries. Good spot for meeting up with a small group of friends. Wifi here.

    Great late night work spot. Awesome gelato and desserts, good Wi-Fi (password is “mango123”), outlets, and a restroom next door (ask for the key). May close up to 45 min early if not busy.

    An amazing coffee shop that I stumbled across. The food selection is unbeatable- I tried their salted crumble gelato, white choc macademian cookie and maple pecan granola parfait and loved them all.

    One of Manhattan's best kept secrets. Everything here is amazing, made with the best ingredients. Definitely try the ferrero icecream and the butter croissant with prosciutto cotto and swiss cheese!!

    One of the better gelato places in Manhattan. Big scoops, rich texture, and refreshing flavors. Recommend peach yogurt, rosewater and lemon basil

    unexpectedly, these are some of my favorite croissants in the city. also, their salami sandwich is amazing and not overwhelmingly large. ps: deb from smitten kitchen hangs out here during the day!

    Adorable decor. Simple yet clean. Each flavor is unique and true to it's name. I recommend the chocolate sorbet and rose water, my two favorites.

    The ferrero tastes IDENTICAL to the Ferrero Rocher candy. This is madness. And alchemy. I am in love. Also recommend the affogato with vanilla bean, the chai latte and nutella banana croissants!

    Love this place. Friendly service, affordable coffee and delicious food and pastries. Rarely crowded. I bet the gelato is really good too but I consider it a coffee shop.

    Great atmosphere and environment for meeting up with friends or doing work. Gelato is good - try their interesting flavors! Tip: If you're a coffee snob, this place is not for you.

    Rosewater & salted caramel gelato are definitely the best flavors ❤️ so light but flavorful at the same time. Love the cappuccino as well; a good amount of frothy milk foam on the top

    Chocolate lovers must try the dark chocolate sorbet, yes I said sorbet. It is to die for.

    You'll find flavors that range from offbeat to classic--rosewater, goat cheese, and chocolate-hazelnut--but this being a Greek gelateria, you should be sure to try the mastic ice cream. Read more

    A variety of gelato and sorbet is served at this cozy café, including a Passionfruit Mojito, Piña Colada, and old-fashioned Vanilla.

    The gelato is amazing, but their food is great too! Sandwiches, salads, etc. They have tons of veggie and vegan options as well. Plus the staff are the sweetest.

    Croissants from Ceci Cela, wonderfully affordable salads and sandwiches, and well crafted coffee. Plus the waitstaff can't be beat! Some of the nicest people in town.

    All of the drinks come with a cute little cookie. The gelato is also delicious. If you need the bathroom, it's behind the Ukrainian restaurant next door.

    You come for the gelato but I recommend you to get the croissant with nutella accompanied with a hot cappuccino. ;-)

    I normally don't leave tips, but seriously the best gelato in all of Manhattan and surrounding boroughs. Pistachio, goat cheese, Ferraro, anything really. And the owner is awesomesauce.

    Yup, I agree, the gelato is pretty amazing. But the cookies, muffins, and other pastries are the real dark horses here!

    Americano was fantastic, well-balanced. Sampled some unusual and delicious gelato flavors: rosewater and goat cheese. Gorgeous space - cute for a quiet morning.

    This gelato shop doubles as a cafe and does so beautifully. They brew La Colombe coffee. & their Nutella croissants are amazing!

    Get half peanut butter and half chocolate in a waffle cone and enjoy the richest and creamiest gelato experience in NYC.

    Hard to believe the mango sorbet is a sorbetto! As rich as most a gelato, and with very little sugar added, it's delicious and healthy, the perfect dessert.

    Beats half the gelato I've had in Italy.... Flavors are strong and texture is creamy. Try the rosewater, pistachio, and the sorbets!

    Fresco's salted caramel gelato is less salty, less sweet, and much better than most of its ice cream cousins. It's won over a non-believer in the flavor.

    Peanut butter and Ferrero gelato make a great combo. The salted crumble is worth a try too

    Vegan ice cream doesn’t taste vegan. So give cows a break and try it.
