It is weird to me when most of restaurants in Rotterdam closing at 7:30pm. But anyways, after dinner, we found out this ice cream shops with more than 10 flavors. The price is discounted once you order from 3 scopes. I ordered 3 different flavors but the shopper misunderstood so that I have 3 scopes with only 2 flavors (cry... More

How did I get here: I've been introduced to this place about 10 years ago. The quality of the ice cream has been high consistently. What do I usually order: pistachio! It's ridiculously good. I haven't had better pistachio ice cream, not even in Italy. Also: cherry, banana, almond crunch, Kinder Bueno, Nutella etc. Usually I buy in a 1... More

One of the best ice-cream places in Rotterdam, the queue in front of the store once it gets a bit sunny only proves it :) try out the stroopwaffel flavor!

Okay the ice cream is not as intense in flavour and cream as Venezia or Luciano in Utrecht or Wassenaar, but it is the best in Rotterdam. AND They are open all through the year !

Being a Rotterdam local, this is the place to be if you're an icecream lover. So many differtent tastes, so gooooood! And it's very clean. And if you're in for an espresso, cappuccino or latte - stop you're there!
