And then there's Amarinyo Gelateria, a Van Nuys favorite with 4.5 stars out of 334 reviews. Stop by 15355 Sherman Way, Suite E, to hit up the creperie, which also offers decadent waffles, next time you're looking to satisfy your cravings.

Yelper Hannah H., who reviewed the popular spot on Sept. 13, wrote, "The gelato is delicious, and they have crepes and Belgium waffles that you can put the gelato on. This reminded me a lot of the dessert shops in Israel, which put ice cream or gelato on fresh waffles!"
