As the weather finally starts to warm up, it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to some gelato. Manny’s Homemade Gelato & Cafe, located about 10 minutes from Algonquin Square Apartments, is the perfect go-to location for a soft, smooth bowl of this Italian dessert.
Manny’s is a quaint little gelato shop located on the bottom floor of a big, brick building. The interior will remind you of a little Italian bakery, with shelves against the walls and the menu written on big, blackboards above the counter. Gaze into the gelato freezer as you decide which flavors to try. They always have 22 flavors on hand and they sometimes rotate in new experimental flavors.
If you’re not sure what you like, the servers at Manny’s will let you try a sample. Then, they will serve up your favorite in a cup with a little pizzelle cookie. Unique flavors include Belgian waffle, tag-along, peanut butter, and espresso.
In addition to gelato, this little shop also serves espresso and freshly brewed pour-over coffee, along with an array of teas. If you visit during lunch time, you can also choose from an array of sandwiches, like the Turkey Club and the Chicken Panini. Join their rewards club for extra specials.
Manny’s is located at 11808 Main Street in Huntley, IL. They’re open 7 days a week from 7 am – 8 pm, so stop in soon to get your gelato fix.
