Established by Rodriguez and his family in August 2011, the restaurant began with the idea of opening a shop that would focus on serving high quality, European gelato, as there were no other businesses in the area with a European touch capitalizing on the growth of Lake Nona. It was Rodriguez’s daughter who first suggested adding crepes to the menu as this was something else the local area was missing when it came to cuisine. Later on, the store added new items like flatbread, croissants, and bagels. “I was thinking in some space where family and friends in our community come to enjoy good food, excellent service, and an amazing environment,” said Rodriguez.
