"A midlife crisis." The man chuckled after I asked him.
And thank God he chose gelato instead of a motorbike or an extreme sports experience. Eddi and his wife make the goods themselves with the equipment out the back, and staples like chocolate, lemon and pistachio flavours are always in supply. Don't feel bad if you don't want to share. I'm not exaggerating when I say Caffe Latte's gelato was the smoothest I had ever eaten in Japan.
Caffe Latte is on Shijo Street in Saiin. It looks Japanese on the outside, Australian on the inside and tastes all Italian. Grazie.
