I stopped by Bubby’s Gelato after driving past it probably a hundred times going to and from my home in Encinitas. I’ve heard great things and I decided it was time to give it a try. I had the Real Italian Gelato and it was excellent! A small is about $4.25 and the flavor was vibrant! Bubby’s also sells “snack sandwiches” which for $3.95 are – peanut butter and banana, three cheese, hummus and black forest ham, just to name a few. Try one of the gourmet sandwiches, such as the French Riviera (tuna, artichoke hearts, tomato, olives, red onion and oregano dressing). Other favorites include the Smoked Turkey Sandwich and Veggie Burger. The food is wonderfully designed and very scrumptious, however you cannot miss the Gelato and ice cream selection; it’s what they are known for. A single scoop of Raspberry Sorbet or Cookies & Cream is a perfect ending to your meal. It’s a small little bistro in Encinitas and very quaint, however décor is not their expertise. The cafe is located along a string of up-scale shops in downtown Encinitas. It is an ideal stop for lunch during a leisurely shopping day. Overall, I’m a fan and glad I stopped in, I have been looking for new choices at lunchtime, and now I have broadened them! If you end up visiting Bubby’s for lunch or snack, remember to leave your plastic at home. It’s CASH ONLY. I think next time I meet up with Linda, my Encinitas real estate agent, I’m going to take her to Bubby’s Gelato for lunch!
