What You'll Get
Summer has no shortage of treats: fireworks, reruns of favorite TV shows, and the return of pets who migrated south for the winter. Celebrate the season’s close with another summer treat: for $5, today’s Groupon gets you $10 worth of gelato, sorbetto, paninis, and more at Via Gelato & Café, just a short drive north of the city in The Glen of Glenview.
Via Gelato & Café’s owners, Ron and Denise Dean, spent three years mastering the art of making of authentic Italian gelato with all natural ingredients, hormone-free milk, and seasonal fruits. Gaze into their artful gelato case at the vibrant colors of at least 24 flavors, all of which are made daily. Request a sample of the signature Ferrero Rocher, which is infused with morsels of hazelnut and milk chocolate. Or, relish a seasonal flavor, such as biscotti or upcoming fall flavors like cinnamon apple pie or pumpkin cheesecake. Sorbetto selections (such as champagne lemon) are blasted with fresh fruit and made with water rather than milk, making them lighter and more aerodynamic during high-speed Segway chases. Both gelato and sorbetto cost $3.50 for a small serving.
Via is as much café as it is gelato, so it offers hungry tummies an admirable menu of soups, salads, paninis and crepes, which is in addition to a cozy atmosphere ideal for whiling away afternoons scheming about ways to get new gaskets. This jack-of-all-tastes establishment also serves wine and beer, and houses live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
