Café Ecco Espresso & Gelato
Located near Santa Fe Plaza, the Cafe Ecco Espresso and Gelato serves hand-pulled espresso drinks, spicy hot chocolate, deli sandwiches, pastries, and Italian-style gelato. The adobe building has a small patio space, while the inside is bright with daubed yellow walls and additional seating. The 20 gelato flavors rotate among unusual tastes such as rosemary, strawberry habanero, and lavender, to the more common chocolate and mint. The gelato is made daily with local and organic ingredients; likewise, the coffee from a local roaster is organic and fair trade.
