Piccomolo Italian Ice Cream ~ Southlake, Texas
But yesterday, we knew we were meeting friends for dinner (at the Ojeda's in Dallas. It is one of now 27 2013 Updates we've made to the blog - so I'm continuing to hold my promise). And these friends eat later than we usually do, so we had to be creative on keeping ourselves from getting too hungry. And we also weren't going to have our customary wine and cheese around 5:00 at home, since we had a long drive ahead of us.
Therefore the Mrs. suggested we go to Piccomolo for some gelato around 3 in the afternoon. I haven't been there in probably 5 years. We strolled around the lovely Southlake Town Square while lapping up our gelato's. We each had small cups (or maybe regular's, I can't remember their nomenclature now). I went with coffee and chocolate; she with pistachio, amaretto, and tiramisu. I've always enjoyed their gelato, super creamy and tasty. There's not much else to say really.
It seems the chain has fallen on hard times. Their website is non-functional and many of their stores have shuttered, including one in Colleyville that we also used to frequent. So I'm not really sure how many Piccomolo stores there are at this time. But the one in Southlake is still doing a land office business!
