Hazelnut gelato at A Cone of Our Own

cone of our own hazelnut gelato

Yum.

Yeah, it seems like everybody has gelato now. It's the new ice cream. And hazelnut is the new chocolate. But the hazelnut gelato at A Cone of Our Own in downtown Albany isn't just any gelato -- it's a small revelation perched on the tip of a tiny plastic spoon.

The frozen treat hits your tongue -- cool, smooth and dense, but not heavy. Then you start registering the deceptively complex flavors (is that a hint of citrus!?!). Your eyes light up and the only thing you can think is, "OMG! This is gelato? It's great!"

We got our first taste of the gelato at Yono's (we hear it's quite the staff favorite there). They also supply Cafe Capriccio and Vin Santo (a custom black cherry zinfandel).

Cone of Our Own has its own store just off Broadway in the arcade building right across from the Hudson River Way. It's only open to walk-in business part of the year, though. But it's your lucky day because today (April 1) is opening day for the season!

The Bottom Line

The hazelnut gelato at Cone of Our Own is delicious. We can't wait to try more of the flavors.

I went there right after I took the GREs around the corner and they were so nice to me when I told them I just performed poorly on a test. They insisted I got whipped cream with my hot chocolate and gave me a plastic bag to carry my gelato in so the paper bag wouldn't desintegrate in the rain. I recommend the coffee.

Had the good fortune to stumble on this wonderful place on a drive home from Vermont last year. When in the area on business, the kids insist I pack a cooler and bring home as much of this fabulous gelato as I can. I agree with my kids. :)

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
