I'm not sure why so many people use Italian ice cream and gelato as the gold standard. Certainly, compared to that I think Eis Christina is better, but that doesn't make it the best ice cream. I guess I just prefer frozen custard and other good heavy ice creams (or sometimes soft-serve, and I don't care if you judge me... More

And I tried several recommended locations by the locals. Eis Cristina is that good and also incredibly cheap, specially considering Frankfurt standards.

I went to this "Eiscafé" with a friend, she's living in Frankfurt and she told me "this is the best place ever to have an ice cream", and I was like "ok , maybe it's good but it can't be SO amazing", and fortunately I was wrong, and now I can tell you this Ice Cream Shop is one of... More

Far and away the best ice cream I've had in Frankfurt. Everything is so fresh. They use real mint in their mint ice cream. Unique flavors that are so full of flavor. Fantastic and friendly staff as well. Be prepared to wait in line, or find it difficult to find seating. That says something right there.

Eis is my husband's turf. He has an ice cream-parlor radar similar to the shoe/handbag-shop radar that I have. He can't pass by an ice cream shop without giving it a try, and in Frankfurt, there are eis shops all over the city. He has his favorites and now I have mine. We were walking around our new neighborhood when... More

The ice cream is absolutely fantastic (made in-house), great location and attentive staff. Italian is spoken among the employees, which makes you feel in a real Gelataria!

We have been to Italy and this ice cream is comparable to the best in Italy. We went there everyday while we were in Frankfurt. Is so good and so affordable. You will not eat one, or once but several items and several times. It is hard to park close by but it is worth walking three blocks to there... More

Nice icecream, relatively busy corner cafe that many people seem to walk into. Staff not english-savvy but nice to you nevertheless. There are other places that have other worthwhile flavours so don;t feel that you have to travel all the way into this area just for icecream. Near Konstablerwache there is Eis Alberto with nice english speaking staff and same... More

Eis Christina is an institution in Frankfurt. The service is good and their espresso is great. Pretty much the best ice cream in town.
