Gelato Shop Shutter
South First gelato shop Tasty Spoon is closing at 1413 South First Street. Its last day of service will be on Saturday, January 27. “Although this journey is sadly ending, it has been an incredible journey that I’m so thankful to have experienced,” noted the Facebook announcement. Owner Ashley MacDonald, who studied at Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna, Italy for all things-gelato, had opened the frozen sweets store in April 2017. Just down the street is gelato shop Dolce Neve and Fresa’s Chicken al Carbon, which sells cups and pints of ice cream.
