We tried the Tropicana and the Blueberry Burst Smoothie. Both were delicious and the prize of 7,50$ for a regular size is totally fair.

When walking along the boardwalk and the shore you cannot miss this ice cream and smoothies parlour. Enjoy yhe delicious gelato and other cool refreshments available. It is a cool relief after a warm day in the sun.

While walking around the Night Market we came across Fresco. The young man who waited on us was very nice. He answered all of my questions, offered samples of the flavors I inquired about & gave awesome recommendations! Passion Fruit, Boysenberry Twist & Rum Raisin...More

The vanilla with seeds was rich and creamy with excellent flavor and texture. It is a sidewalk stall so no seating. Nice selection of premium ice creams. Very friendly service. Reasonable prices. Great to top off a meal or just a snack.
