For my first visit, I arrived shortly after 11am on a weekday and the place was jam-packed with customers. The queue to order and pay was quick and new customers, some laden with luggage, kept pouring in. The service at the pastry counter was friendly and efficient. I visited Nola Mia multiple times and my biggest dilemma was: which flavors of gelato to choose. I have a particular fondness for pistachio and chocolate. But have one of each of the many they offer, is my recommendation.
”Three words — believe the hype. Nola Mia is — and I rarely use this expression because it’s already so overused — a hidden gem.”
Best Milkshake’s. Whilst in New Orleans we’d eaten a lot of ice cream and wanted something else and saw that Nola Mia offered milkshakes/fruit smoothies and it was the best we’d had. It was so tasty and full of flavor. Price was reasonable and good value! If I could give 6 stars I would! A great selection of classic and modern Gelato flavors.
Wonderful options for Vegan visitors, their chocolate gelato is the best gelato I have ever eaten even in Italy.
I would visit NOLA again just to have more Gelato from here! No matter how long or short your stay is in New Orleans, make sure you visit NOLA MIA!
Amazing vegan ice cream. So nice to be able to enjoy an ice cream with others! So many vegan options of proper ice cream, they had sorbets as well. Friendly and helpful. They even have vegan cones for the ice cream too! Reasonable price for location as very central – the portions are huge! Would recommend and will definitely be going back! Great Gelato in NOLA with a good variety to choose from. Prices were reasonable and the service was always friendly.
