A server at Cricket's Creamery & Cafe (315 W. 19th St., 713-869-9450) sums up the wildflower honey and lavender gelato ($2.95 cup; $3.20 cone) this way: "You either love it or hate it." You might expect the gelato to be purple, but it's a pale cream color, emitting the distinct, flowery fragrance of lavender. The lavender makes an interesting combination with honey, which adds distinctive sweetness. We fall squarely in the "love it" camp: There's no better way to consume this wonderful plant.
