Great in almost every way, but understaffed

This is the location for good ice cream in Svaneke. The old "Ismejeriet" has new owners, so the original location (this one) still has the best ice cream. To have a vanilla and coffee ice cream in the back garden is a perfect Svaneke day. Everything about this place is perfect Bornholm to me... read more

Each time we are in Svaneke we are having these great, home made ice creams and an excellent coffee. Some tastes are very very special and worth remembering (carrot!) but most are just a very very good!

We tasted delicious ice creams, but even better was the excellent service from the delightful girl behind the counter! She was very cheerful and let us sample a few flavors first!

Located on the main square in Svaneke, Svaneke Is is scenic and beautiful, with a very pleasant seating area round back, and some on the main square. The hot drinks are tasty, and the Ice Cream even more so!

This is a must for any Ice cream lover. Very cool and cozy ambiance, and super tasty ice creams. The best is the home made cones. Very recommendable for Danish standards.

Ice cream parlor on the square in Svaneke, I'm more into the italian style ice cream (more sorbet-like, less cream), but this was the best ice-cream I've had in Denmark. The ice-cream is made of local dairy products and sweetened with local honey. The cones are made of local flour and local rapeseed oil. They have some lovely flavors which... More

A pleasant ice cream parlor on the square in Svaneke. Ice cream well made with good flavors and friendly service. Nothing unusual, but worth a stop if hankering for some ice cream.

Svaneke is one of, if not the, best town on Bornholm. It has its own rogeris (fish smokehouse) and makes its own beer. Many varities and located right in the center of town. If you like beer, you'll love this pub.

I was so excited about visiting this little ice cream place after having read so many positive reviews about it... but unfortunately I found the quality of the ice cream to be rather disappointing to put it nicely :( The portions were TINY yet pricey. I ordered vanilla and choc ice cream and expected the ice cream to be rich... More
