Gellattes

GELLATTES While we're dang near sure some gelato connoisseurs would be willing to argue the finer points of the topic until they're blue in the face, the samples we've had of the stuff in the past tasted mostly like ice cream (the difference apparently lies in how good it is for you, with traditional gelato being considerably lower in butterfat and sugar than plain ol' ice cream). That said, ice cream — like pizza, chocolate and sex — is pretty good no matter how you can get it, so we're not complaining if somebody wants to quibble over the name. While the gelato to be had at the Gelattes in West Little Rock is a bit pricey, it was very tasty, with a thick, creamy, homemade flavor. Situated in the back of Blue Coast Burrito on Cantrell Road, the little coffee and gelato shop — which also features fresh fudge, pastries and a rather encyclopedic list of teas — makes for a fine dessert after some of Blue Coast's fish tacos. During a recent visit, we tried the cookies-and-cream and turtle cheesecake varieties of gelato, along with a mocha latte. Though the price for two large gelatos and the coffee came to over $15 before tip, we found the flavors definitely soothed the sting in the wallet. Too, given how rich everything we had was, we probably could have gone with a small and been just as happy. 14810 Cantrell Road. No alcohol, CC. $-$$. 501-868-5247 LD daily.

  • Trumpeting

    When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
