Dessert for Lunch at Mama Micieli's

UPDATE *********LOCATION CLOSED************************
I have driven past Mama Micieli's on Park Bouelvard hundreds of times and saw the sign "Gelato and Desserts" and I would think to myself that I must stop in sometime for gelati.  Well, fortunately that day finally happened!  Don't let the sign fool you, there is a lot more than cookies and gelato.

When I entered the restaurant, I was delighted to see the array of desserts!

I thought about making it a dessert before lunch kind of day.  But, I waited and ate lunch first!

Although there are tables for outside dining, we chose to eat inside.  The inside of the restaurant (including the bathroom) is very clean.  There is a lot of decorative tilework throughout the building.

The specials of the day were either eggplant parmagiana or stuffed bell pepper. ($7.95 including salad) I was debating between a meatball sub ($5.95), an Italian wrap ($5.95 includes bag of chips and pickle) or one of the specials. I decided to order the eggplant special.  My friends ordered the turkey lunch crepe ($5.95 with bag of chips and pickle) and the stuffed bell pepper.

The owners of the restaurant are very friendly. (Sharon's grandmother is actually Mama Micieli, is 102 and lives in New York.)  They answered all of my questions with a smile and were very gracious. When she asked me if I wanted bleu cheese or feta on my side salad, I almost fell off my chair with delight.  I love bleu cheese!

Our meals were delivered quite timely.

Turkey Crepe:

 Eggplant Parmigiana
 Stuffed bell pepper. (Not sure if you can tell, but this is one huge bell pepper!)

We also shared a piece of the Limoncelli cake.

The selection of gelato flavors is wonderful.
 I will go back in for the gelato, but today I just got some brownies to take home. (Turtle and German) will be having a Dolci, Vino and Amici event on August 23. Click here to register.
