Best ice-cream in Marseiile

Must have for Maseille visitors. Fantastic choice for ice-cream. With violets and chestnuts, with raisins and roses. Everything looks like little masterpiece. small or big portions - its only your taste.

I regard myself as a bit of an aficionado on the glace/gelato/ice cream front so I thought I'd died and gone to heaven! Awesome produce and I think its made on the premises. I just stumbled upon this place whilst dining in this beautiful square. A bewildering range of ice creams. Friendly staff. Pay before you buy at the caisse.... More

Nice ice cream, but a horrible welcome. I failed to understand their numerous notices about methods of purchase and seating. I was twice moved to different places. An ice cream shop needs to be friendly and helpful, including to those who don't speak the language. I too left not feeling good.

We found this shop in a square near the old part of the city A good selection of ice creams and ice cream concoctions. We tried a number of different ice creams and then wondered around the streets very happily indulging ourselves with the wonderful flavours. The ice creams and sorbets were really excellent

Horrible experience. The ice cream is of good quality, but we are here for a month in the neighborhood and will never patronize this establishment again. That will save us the extra 2 Euro 50 per person to sit down at one of their tables (saving us 10 euros that we can happily spend at any other ice cream shop... More

The sorbets are good and the shop is well placed. However the service is not great and you don't come out of there feeling very good, more like a number. To give them credit i'm sure it's partly due to the number of the people arriving in a very short period of time when the weather is right on a... More

this isn't the cheapest ice cream (or waffles) you can find in Marseille but god damn it is good. The ice cream changes every day so it's always a surprise the flavours to pick from make you want 6 all at once. The waffles were made to perfection. Delicious, literally outstanding.

Came here twice in our weekend visiting Marseille as it was so good ! It's not far from the Port, up a couple of flights of steps, well worth the 10minute walk. One scoop is more than enough, in a cone or a tub. My niece liked the apple sorbet too. You must go !
