Le Grande Orange Grocery

this little marketplace is a great destination for many locals in phoenix.  the grocery has gourmet goods for humans and our little four legged friends.  you can pick up a fresh sandwich or salad, or some baked goods.  this place reminds me of market hall in oakland or a mini ferry building up in san francisco.  it cute and quaint...we just sat outside with our gelato, cake and bean aka adi (annie's little baby dog...seen in the pete's fish and chips post).  she was the star of our trip...everyone came over to see and pet her. 

i was full already, so all i wanted was a bit of dessert and here is where i got my gelato.

chocolate and pistachio...

i got both chocolate and pistachio...and oh how i wish i only got pistachio.  the gelato here was soooo creamy and each flavor was incredibly intense.  the chocolate was almost too much for me...but the pistachio was heaven.  the flavor of pistachio just burst in my mouth with each little spoonful.  its almost "dense" and you know that no air was incorporated into this wonderful frozen dessert. 

i have been searching and searching for some amazing gelato...and this place did not disappoint.  if you are ever in the phoenix area and you are a gelato connoisseur, you have got to stop in for a scoop or two.
