Friday Sundae: Ici's Affogato

Amongst all the temptations of Ici (2948 College Avenue in Berkeley) is the delicious affogato di gelato ($5.75), an Italian sundae of vanilla bean ice cream crowned with freshly brewed warm espresso and chewy candied orange peel. The sundae pictured above is the to-go version, but if you savor it there it comes served in a coffee cup. Be careful if you're as caffeine-sensitive as this writer, however, because the espresso delivers the expected punch, especially if you adopt the same method of slurping the melted espresso-vanilla mixture with abandon. -- Tamara Palmer
