Small shop, very small selection (around 12 flavors) of obviously self made icecream. Prices are high compared to others even in Munich. But oh my gosh... the taste, the consistency. Without exaggeration one of the best icecream I have had in my life. We had...More

We recently read a guardian article that revealed the 20 best ice cream places in Europe and this one was on the list. That‘s why we walked there to taste them. Although they are good (no question about that!) there are better ice creams all...More

Excellent icecream, interesting but delicious flavours. They also give you an additional spoon of one flavour you would like to try. When we were there all flavours were gluten free so that was a plus also.

One of the best places to have ice cream in Munich. I was told that the ice cream here is even better than those in Italy and they are catered for tourists instead of the gourmets. As always with the good food, expect a queue...More

We passed by the Ballabeni on Theresienstraße recently after having two great visits to the Ballabeni Werkstatt earlier in the week. There was a long queue formed outside the parlour when we arrived. That is usually a good sign when it comes to finding good...More

While all the flavours here are wonderful it is the chocolate ones that really star. The chocolate ginger is sublime. They have a lovely system here that when you order you can also ask to try another flavour and they add a little of that...More
