Don't be put off by the queue, you are served quickly. Really enjoyed both the ice cream and sorbet. Not overly expensive. Just across the road from Museum Brandhorst.

The flavors are truly outstanding. The ice cream is intense and rich (a warning for those who don't like sweet). But the flavors are true and combinations marvelously intense yet subtle: chocolate ginger, cannolo, pistachio...

It is sooo worth it. Best ice cream probably in the whole world. There is no place to sit, and it is definitely overcrowded, but still - it is worth it.

I just dont get it. I've eaten better ice cream but there is always a long cue. The ice cream tastes kind of fatty. A good point is that they let you try a bit of an ice cream for free.

The ginger schokolade is AMAZING, and the lemon/basil also delicious. We've been here twice in less than a week and we have another five days until departure, so we may be back! It's a small shop, so a sign asks you to wait outside until a server is available; not all comply, but it's all friendly and still efficient.

Great selection of flavors, and the ice cream itself is to die for. A great place to sit and enjoy some dessert if you are lucky enough to get a spot on the bench outside.

The price per portion is 1,50€ but it's very ok as you get very delicious ice cream and unusual yummy kinds. The staff is very friendly although there's always a long queue in front of the cash desk and the counter. Additional nice gimmick is it, that you'll get a small spoon of one kind of your choice to try.

Every time I've walked past this ice cream store there has been a long, long line. I finally stopped to give it a try and I must say, I think this is the best ice cream in Munich! Served only one way, in a waffle cup, they offer some unique flavors like ginger chocolate along with the standards. The lemon... More
