Frozen desserts are used to delight taste buds, unlike boiling desserts, which are used to stop invaders from scaling gingerbread castles. Harness the benefits of powerful treats with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gelato, sorbet, and more at Gelato Café at Fashion Show Mall.
From its outpost on famed Las Vegas Boulevard, Gelato Café sates cravings for subzero treats with an 18-flavor assortment of gelato and sorbet crafted daily in its local kitchen. Cool down overheated tongue buds with a succulent pineapple sorbet ($5 for a single), or use an effective waffle cone boundary ($1.50 extra) to prevent your triple dollop of tiramisu gelato from absconding for the slot machines ($9). Fruit-ensconced sorbet offerings contain less than 1 percent fat, enabling customers to placate sweet teeth without undermining goals of someday fitting into their old high-school backpacks. Bare scoops may also be robed in lavish costumes of sprinkles, nuts, italian-style whipped cream, or a glaze of chocolate syrup before tap-dancing onto tongues ($1 each). Ward off postfeast weariness with a rejuvenating espresso ($2), or wash down loitering gelato particles with the rising tide of a root-beer float ($7).
Gelato Café furnishes all comestible requestables from the windows on its glass storefront, so patrons can grab their preferred treats and go back to gawking at the operatic street performances and unusual architecture that line the Las Vegas Strip.
I tried their oreo, which was a great treat on such a hot day.Jocelyn C., Yelp, 8/18/09
