La Divina Gelateria’s newest location, tucked inside Loyola University’s Carrollton Hall, is officially open. (See a campus map here.) I’ve popped in a few times this week, and the place is bustling with life already….and my quality of life has improved significantly, as I can now take a short, pleasant stroll from my office to good gelato. It’s like a dream come true. Okay, maybe not a “dream”, as that would involve the gelato being delivered right to me, but at least a nice upgrade in the local food options.
A couple of booths, a handful of tables, and a few benches provide patrons with a spot to linger over gelato, espresso, or a selection from the bakery case. According to Carmelo, the cafe is open from 11 am ’til midnight weekdays, until 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays, and until 10 pm on Sundays. I spied two big Baker’s Pride ovens tucked into the kitchen…maybe we’ll see a pizza or two on the menu?
