Before we chat about the gelato - can you take 5 minutes and take my reader survey? You might win brunch at First Watch!
Well - right now - the most talked about place in town is buona terra in Mt Lookout - at least according to Urbanspoon.
One of the folks behind the shop is from Belgium - so the crepes come from his area of expertise. The shop is really cleanly decorated and has interesting photos from the renovations.
Next up was the Greco - which I was REALLY looking forward to - it's basically the same as the Red Goat at It's Just Crepes. The Greco has Spinach, Tomato, Goat Cheese and Balsamic Glaze ($7). This was my favorite of the savory crepes for sure. The buckwheat base makes it a lot heartier and they sure are beautiful.
And then my favorite crepe was a shocker!!!! The French Summer ($5) had lemon curd, lavender sugar and whipped cream. Let me tell you this was AMAZING!!!! Danielle and I practically licked the plate clean on this one! It was sweet but not overwhelming and the lemon curd was perfection! When you go - trust me - get this one! Wow!
Yowza - where to begin?!
We tried a lot of gelato - my favorite ended up being a combo of chocolate and almond. It was DELICIOUS. So creamy and rich - heavenly stuff!
Did I mention that we ate a LOT of gelato?
As we left - one of the crepe makers shared her baked goods with us as well - these will be added to the menu in the future as well.
Why Should You Go? It's a welcome addition to the Mt Lookout Square bevy of food offerings. UDF is there now serving up ice cream - but this is on a different level. I can definitely imagine stopping in on a Sunday morning for a crepe or a lazy Saturday afternoon for some of that amazing gelato. Good job guys and good luck!
