What’s on the Menu: Affogato West | Brought to you by Camping World

FEATURE — After nearly a year of serving its beverages “infused with love and chaos” from a food truck, Affogato West has recently found a new home in a former warehouse building in St. George.

Owner-operator Elise West says she is “super excited” about her business’s recent move.

“Affogato was actually born initially as a coffee truck, ran up for 11 months and then this opportunity came to move into the storefront, which is my ultimate dream,” West told St. George News. “We’ve been here since Aug. 4 of this year and going strong.”

West says the new location provides a much needed gathering space for area residents to relax while sipping a delicious handmade coffee, espresso or smoothie.

“It’s all about the community for me. I do it because I love coffee, but I also love to entertain.”

The name Affogato, which means “drowned” in Italian, refers to a certain type of drink where a scoop of vanilla ice cream is covered with a shot of espresso. Affogato afficionados may choose to garnish the delicious dessert drink with caramel, chocolate, white chocolate, peanuts or almonds.

Affogato’s menu includes a wide selection of gourmet and traditional coffees, including various flavored latte and espresso options.

Besides coffee, there are plenty of other drink options available, including tea, cocoa, lemonade, chocolate milk and fruit juice.

Affogato West’s signature smoothie meals consist of your choice of fruit and vegetables, ice and water – or add milk to make it a shake. Choices include the popular combo of butternut squash and mango, in addition to other possibilities such as strawberry, pineapple and banana. Superfood boosters such as protein powder can be added for a surcharge.

West says she hopes customers of all ages will find her business to be a welcoming place to come hang out.

“Our tagline is ‘Infused with love and chaos,'” she said. “That’s really important. Every drink that goes down, if you don’t like it, we remake it. You’re spending your hard earned money. So we want you to just really enjoy the experience from the second you walk in until the time you leave.”
