Second place: Nuvola Gelato & Dolci
With a constantly rotating gelato menu, it’s always exciting to enter Nuvola Gelato & Dolci to see what they’re featuring.

Third place: Soft Peaks Ice Cream
This is not your ordinary soft-serve ice cream shop. Soft Peaks Ice Cream takes pride in using organic milk ingredients and guarantees a gourmet, handcrafted ice cream experience.
