Style & Substance: Heavenly Gelato 



A sweet ending to the days of autumn comes in the form of locally made Gelati Celesti vanilla and chocolate gelato drowned in a single shot of warm espresso and topped off with homemade whipped cream. Oh yes.

Called an "affogato," this Italian indulgence can be had at Café Gutenberg for $7. The richness and density of the gelato slowly melt away with the addition of a perfectly poured shot of Illy espresso. It's the perfect balance of decadence and pleasure revealed in a simple, delicious combination.
