Made on the premises, the quality of the ice cream from Monte Pelmo is nearly as good as some of the best Italian gelataria. Flavours seem to change often so if you fancy trying something just go for it as it may not be there the next day. Fairly long queues in the evening mean you may have a wait... More

We travelled from the UK & came across this place. You can tell from the look & taste of their products they know how to make delicious ice cream. Lots of flavors to choose from & the queue is busted through really quickly. The locals love it, that's when you know it's good! Try it, try it, try it! x

Delicious ice cream! For example, you can choose 2 normal scoops for €2,70 or 3 "small" scoops for €2,75. Note: small is not small. Small is perfect! I had Caramel Banana Cookie dough, Tiramisu and Amarene Yogurt. This place is een somewhat hidden gem in the Jordaan. Which I will certainly visit soon!

On a warm March day feeling hot we stumbled across this wonderful ice cream shop. Very good. Next door there is a lovely little children's and woman's dress shop to visit after you have eaten your ice cream!

This small family-owned gelato shop should not be missed if you are in Amsterdam. Gelato is made fresh daily and served with a smile. Flavors are rotated to take advantage of seasonal ingredients at their peak of flavor. It is well-known to the locals who gather on the sidewalk to eat and chat. Although it is closed to the public... More

Find a good ice cream in Amsterdam is not so easy... That is the reason this ice cream is so special. They have the Italian "spirit". Normally is a place that open 6 months per year... so if you are walking around the Jordaan area it is good to try some of the nice flavors they have. They are in... More

On both occasions we visited Monte Pelmo, there was a huge queue so we decided to queue up too and find out why. This seems to be a popular post dinner stop in the Jordaan and we were not surprised that the ice cream is fabulous! We sampled the cheesecake, stroopwaffel and the heavenly yoghurt ice cream, all of which... More

Loved the ice-cream and the round biscuit on top - it really is needed. Always tried the creamy/coffee/caramel flavors. Havent tried any of the fruity ones because everyday there was a new flavor that I drooled over the name of and went straight ahead to. Their ice-cream is homemade so they juggle around the flavors on the menu everyday but... More

We visited Monte Pelmo for the second time tonight. Both times it had a long line and the ice cream was consistently good. The first night I got chocolate and strawberry. The chocolate was good but subtle, and the strawberry was more of a sorbet. Tonight I got caramel and white chocolate. The caramel was great,t he white chocolate was... More

I'm a local and live in the neighborhood. While there's nothing wrong with the ice cream, there's also nothing artisan or high quality about it either. Yes they have lots of flavors, and their prices are reasonable, but there's not a lot of difference with what you buy in the supermarket. A few years ago it was a functioning ice... More
