Blanket your tongue with a silky, creamy afghan of sweet flavor: for $5, today’s Groupon gets you $12 worth of handmade gelato at Gelato Blu. The deal is also good for smoothies, espresso, and more at this intimate Italian café. Napkins, as always, are free within reason.
Gelato Blu’s owner spent almost five months scooping up secret recipes abroad, like an Indiana Jones of frozen treats, before returning stateside to serve the perfect cup. Gelato Blu is where you can get authentic Italian style gelato, made in true Italian methods. Choose from an extensive assortment of flavors, such as green mint chocolate chip, caramel, coconut, vanilla fudge, and lemon custard in three sizes ($3.60 to $4.95). There’s also soy and sugar-free options, as well as sorbetto.
If sweetness makes you bitter, you could opt to caffeinate with an espresso drink from the caffé Italiano. All drinks are under $5, so you could indulge in a few espressi con panna ($1.95 to $2.48). Gelato Blu also offers smoothies with Vitamin Shop protein, weight slim, and anti-oxidant boosts (starting at $4.70). In addition, serene cerulean walls and cornflower blue booths lend a calming feel to this petite café. Bring friends or a date, or just reward yourself with a sweet treat after a long week of racing radio-controlled airplanes.
- Best I've ever had. The "Pistachio" in particular, is like nothing you've ever tasted. So fresh and flavorful. I also love the strawberry and every other flavor I've tasted. The handmade cones are incredible, too. Really, you have to try this place! – jeisenhardt, Citysearch
- Sooo good...I feel like drooling like Homer Simpson when I think about this place. I honestly don't know why people would choose ice cream over a delicious gelato or sorbet. – Tanya K., Yelp
