Dio Mio gelato desserts cafe, 5670 Spring Garden, 492-3467
Frozen history repeats itself as Dio Mio scoops Cows for Best Ice Cream. “Any day’s a day for Dio,” says a customer shoveling in spoonfuls of her gelato on a drizzly, cold day. “It’s good for making it feel like spring.” It might not seem like frozen-treat weather yet, but I think the lady’s right and apparently so do you. The relatively healthy ingredients and the fact that everything’s made on the premises (instead of some distant gelato factory with who-knows-what added) certainly can’t hurt.
