Whenever at Mangalore, I never go without visiting this Ice cream Joint. They serve yummy and tasty Ice creams. They have 2 outlets near Hampankatta Junction - one in market road and the other in GHS Road. Both are good.

Ideal is one of the oldest and the best ice cream parlours in south India. I have been to Ideal cream parlour near Hampankatta in Mangalore during my childhood days. Missing the rich creamy yummy taste of gadbud :) If you are in Mangalore, Dont miss to visit this heritage ice cream place
