When we have guests from out of town, we take the required after dinner walk and pop in for gelato. There are so many flavors to choose from and I always promise myself that I will try something new, but always end up with the Mango.
The staff are always friendly and will let you taste what ever flavor catches your eye. There are three different sizes - picolo $2.95, medio $3.75 and generoso $4.75. Be warned they melt quickly and will drip making your hands sticky because you cannot lick fast enough no matter how much you try.
I think we just need to sit down and enjoy them, but ask our friend Riki and she will tell you there is nothing better than walking downtown Corvallis on a beautiful fall evening, the sounds of the local dance club in the air, eating Gelato, window shopping and then figuring out where we are going to wash our sticky hands. (The bus station has a water fountain which has always helped us out.)
Here are a few pictures I have taken of one of our trips to Francesco's.
So many flavors

Francesco's Gelato Caffe is locally owned and is located at 208 SW 2nd Street, Corvallis. Stop by when you are next in town and let me know what flavor you tried. Don't forget to ask for a taste of Mango.
