Gelato Gal's flavor-forgers dispense low-fat treats including gelato, candy, and espresso drinks. The staff spurns artificial flavors and preservatives to fashion the delectable bites from natural, locally acquired ingredients and to form an expansive menu of made-from-scratch goodies. Lavish tongue-bunkers with one of more than 60 sweet varieties of gelato such as lemon cheesecake, apple pie, or apricot cream, or slake saccharine cravings with sorbetto-style gelato, which boasts lactose- and fat-free medleys such as grapefruit and coconut-lime ($3.25+).
