Capogiro Gelato Artisans
Located between Chestnut and Walnut Streets, this family-run gelato shop uses hormone-free milk from grass-fed cows to make its chilled Italian dessert, which has about half the fat of ice cream. Each day, the shop makes the gelato fresh from scratch, sourcing many of the ingredients locally, like Lancaster County pears and pumpkins. Daily flavors may include the simple Cucumber Sorbetto, the Cachi gelato flavored with persimmon, or the Cioccolato Messicano flavoroed with spicy Mexican chocolate, bitter almonds, ancho chilis, and chipotle peppers. Opened in 2002, the corner café also serves coffees, winter soups, and panini.
