For me, Roanoke used to just be the place I went up 900N for jumprope practice in the school gym with the Hopping Hoosiers. Today, their main street is a tiny epicurean treasure of sorts, led by the Joseph Decuis establishment (I am only familiar with the emporium and wine cellar and can only imagine the dining and lodging experience). A recent addition to Main Street in Roanoke is Moose & Mollie’s, a place for a cool sweet treat. I stopped in with my mom during the small Farmer’s Market Saturday, and we sampled a few of the gelato varieties, including Blueberry Butter Cookie. I had a chocolate hankering, so I went with Dark Chocolate Raspberry, and Mom went with Banana Caramel Praline. More Americanized (topping options!) than what I remember at the Trevi Fountain; Moose & Mollie’s was friendly, fresh and charming, much like Roanoke. I also cannot deny the coziness of a window seat and a candy counter in the same room. Made me want to get out the ol’ beaded jumpropes and turn up some Van Halen.
