Rich, Creamy Gelato
This cosy little place at the basement of PoMo Mall serves rich, homemade ice cream. The first thing you’ll see as you approach the shop would be the colorful tubs of gelato, neatly lined up behind a glass casing.
Most, if not all, of the flavours here are of the rich, creamy kind. So I would recommend bringing your own water or a drink. Nevertheless, their gelato is of good quality and the taste is just right, neither too sweet nor bland. Furthermore, the portions are really value for money! Even the smallest size available feels like the medium size you usually get elsewhere.
The staff are also always friendly and would patiently explain the ingredients of the different flavours or how much it would cost to add toppings and such. The place is rather small, with only about 4 or 5 small tables. It is however, an excellent place to relax and enjoy a cup of handmade gelato with a friend or two.
Cozy and Sweet!
I first stumbled upon this quaint little shop while exploring the Peace Center Building a few months ago and now it has become my favourite place to hang out after and in between school hours.
Given that most of their customers are students from nearby institutes, Gelato Cottage boasts a variety of flavours, though I would recommend their chocolates the most - sampling is free, and is actually encouraged by the store owner, who's very friendly and approachable.
As for meals, I ordered a serving of their Grandpa Bear's All-Day breakfast set and the kind lady boss actually threw in an extra waffle for each of my friends and I when we celebrated the birthday of one of us there that day.
Especially for students of Lasalle, NAFA, and Kaplan will especially like Gelato Cottage. We get a discount as long as we flash our student cards when we order, so remember to bring your pass along!
Approachable Owner, Lovely homemade icecream
Ever since I met Gelato Cottage's owner for the first time at a bazaar in SMU, she never forgot my name. Sharon, the owner, is a motherly and warm lady who makes wonderful tasting homemade ice cream and sells it in her cosy little cafe in the basement level of Pomo. She takes time to talk to her customers and once even sat down with me to share her dreams and aspirations for GC. Needless to say, I was impressed as a young undergraduate who knew nothing about entrepreneurship.
GC's homemade icecream makes me feel like if my mother ever knew how to make icecream, it would taste something like that. My favourite flavours are Baileys Cream and Rocky Biscottino. The Bel-Going-Banana's, which is GC's variation of the banana split, consist of sliced bananas with 3 choice scoop of icecream and topped with a drizzle of hot chocolate syrup and nuts. At $10,80, it can be shared between 2 to 3 people and is in my opinion the most value for money. GC is also a quiet place to chill out with friends after a long day.
