If one place which you can't miss visiting if you are visiting Mangalore is Ideal Ice cream parlour. It Mangalore's pride. You are spoilt for choice when it comes ice creams. Gadbad is my all time favourite. And then there is Tiramisu. Every Non resident mangalorean will visit Ideal when he comes here to relive his childhood and college days.... More

Too much hype is created instead you can explore Naturals etc for ice creams. There are long Q & customers not guided well. They close very early by 10pm when its right time for people to eat icecreams post dinner.

Wonderful ice creams. Great unique flavors, very Smith - must try if you are in Mangalore. Best chocolate and vanilla flavors. Carry home and eat in the comfort of your house. That's a better option to eating at the parlor itself.

One of the must visit joints when one is in Mangalore. It is very close to City centre mall. Very famous for icecreams like Gadbad, Parfeit, Beehive and Dilkush etc. It also has decent food options-dosa, pav bhaji, and other snacks. The ambiance is good and food is also good. They serve RO water here which is perfect for travellers.... More
