Affogato / gelato in the FiDi?

Are there any quick places in the FiDi that serve affogato? If not, what about just gelato (so I can drop by a coffee shop and make my own affogato)? The coffee shop on Bush/Montgomery used to have it before they changed owners, but it looks like they no longer do.

  1. Il Massimo del Panino has gelato and affogato. Two locations, one on Washington between Battery and Sansome and the other in Embarcadero Four, facing Market Street across from One Market restaurant. They have good panini and salads too, as well as a nice selection of desserts.

      Just to clarify, the building that faces Market and houses Massimo's is not Embarcadero Four -- it's The Hyatt Regency. Embarcadero 4 is bordered by Sacramento Alley on its south side.

        You are correct; the actual address is Five Embarcadero Center, not Four.

          You know, I thought the Hyatt was 5 Embarcadero, too. But when I looked at the EC website, there was no mention of it, and the Hyatt isn't included on the map -- although I know I've seen it on EC maps before. Very mysterious!

            Funny, because Noah's bagels, right next door to Massimo, lists its address as 5 EC on its website. The whole Embarcadero Center thing gets confusing at times.
