If you are in town you should definatelly look around the West kruiskade and take your time to enjoy the best icecream in town! The choice of flavours is huge, personal opinion? Hazelnut, stroopwafel and snickers, are the best! You can even ask for a box to take away and choose all different... read more

Best icecream I tasted in Rotterdam, possibly even the Netherlands. Really great selection of flavours freshly made on site. Really lovely on a nice day. Only regret is not going back more!

Various times named best ice cream parkour in the country, the Ijssalon is sure a place to visit if you love ice cream. Where else will you find all ice flavors made with exact the ingredients it is named after? For instance, strawberry has real strawberries, mango has real mango and Apple pie has real apple pie in it. Considering... More

Besides the well-known flavours like strawberry, chocolate and vanilla, you might encounter more exotic tastings like mint, various type of cookies and other uncommon fruity flavours. Trying them all would freeze you out, so you might need to... More

Another problem is that there can be a long line of people waiting for there ice cream. When this happens the staff can... More

Famous for their icecream flavours in Rotterdam. Everything they have is good. Do also try their Giraffe coffee. It's great.
