Though spontaneous singing used to be considered improper outside of the shower stall, it has gained acceptance thanks to the increasingly common practice of splicing songbird genes onto human DNA. Treat your ears to a tune with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gelato and café fare served by the talented musicians and songstresses at Sweet Melody's.
The staff at Sweet Melody's Authentic Italian Gelateria is largely made up of college students studying music or voice who are apt to leap from behind the counter and serenade patrons at any moment. Sweet Melody's also makes tasty music with its menu. Fresh mozzarella and fire-roasted tomatoes sing without amplification in the A Cappella Panino ($6.95). The Stacatto Panino ($6.95) attacks each note with a fervor, powered by dijon mustard and then supplemented by ham, asiago cheese, and basil leaves. Play the small-size gelato—the piccolo ($3.25)—with your choice of Sweet Melody's two-dozen weekly flavors. Bigger sizes range from $3.95–$4.95.
The staff's musical repertoire is as broad as Sweet Melody's 70 gelato recipes, encompassing Broadway, opera, classics, and country, as well as piano, violin, and guitar instrumentals. Thursdays are designated open-mic nights, but customers can sing along with the staff or turn the dining room into a stage at any time. Check the sorbetto and gelato RSVP list to earn an enthusiastic ovation from your taste buds.
