It's going to hit 90 in the next couple of days; doesn't some gelato sound good right about now?
That's what Yaron Cohen is hoping. The Israeli native and his Argentinian relative, Leo Faria, just opened their new shop, The Gelato Maker, last weekend. The two trained in a gelato shop in Barcelona, Spain, before starting the business. Now, they're serving up freshly made, preservative-free frozen treats made in a glass-framed kitchen, so customers can watch the magic happen.
There are 32 diffferent flavors, and some pretty novel ones among them. Think mojito with fresh mint leaves, spicy chocolate, royal chestnut, avocado (!!!), and crema catalana, made with cinnamon, eggs, and caramel.
Head over between 2 and 5 p.m. on weekdays for their "happy hour" and get half off. A good way to indulge in twice as much gelato, I think!
The shop is located next to Goldie's Sports Bar at 10135 E. Via Linda in Scottsdale, and is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily (to 11 on Fridays and Saturdays). Call 480-767-2287 for info.
