We have come here often for tea, coffee, and non dairy gelato. Lovely quiet spot in the ninth street district of Durham.

Pros: quiet, affordable, friendly staff

great vegan sorbetto

Posted on 08 / 13 / 2008

The manager of Francesca's is very willing to provide vegan options, and even has told me I can call a day or two ahead to request a specific flavor. There is always at least one or two vegan sorbetto options (chocolate is my favorite) and more often than not, there is also a soy ice cream option. All are made on the premises. It's not the best vegan ice cream in the world, but it is wondeful to be able to go "out" and get a dish of this, especially if you are with non-vegan friends, everyone can be happy.
Typically there are a couple other dessert options that are vegan, such as a peanut butter cookie, or chocoalte peanut butter cups. And of course there is soy milk options for all the coffee drinks.
