Place for Ice Cream

Extensive choice of good ice cream. A good place to sit and watch the world go by on Place Moulay Hassan.

The icecreams looked nice so we had a couple. They were quite nice. The server was a bit rude and not very helpful. Glad we tried the ice cream. The first of our trip. They could be in a cone or in a cup. I had a cherry one which was OK.

This is in the central square where you can sit in the sun, have excellent coffee, ice cream & crepes- which we did every day as the coffee was the best in Essouira!

My title pretty much sums up why I was so happy to come here every chance I could on my few days in Essaouira. Add that to the fantastic location for people-watching on the main square, the sun, the views of the sea and you've got a recipe for a lovely, relaxing couple of hours.

Dolce Freddo is located just outside the Medina, near the start of the port area, and a short walk from the beach. The ice cream is really creamy and rich, and they serve a wide variety of coffee which is lovely to sip, as you watch the seagulls and city of Essaouira pass by...

We were several times on the terrace of Dolce Freddo enjoying our coffees and icecreams. IT was the favorite place of our kids.

Moroccan ice cream, no, give it a miss, there are no cows in the fields around here, do you think they use goat's milk.

You can only make Italian ice cream in Italy. Service was desultory. Ice cream was tasteless and melty (it wasn't that hot, so no excuse). Not to be repeated. But it does have a great location in the main square.

Great location and the ice creams look terrific. But, hanging on the wall is a breakfast menu so we chose this spot fir a bit if breakfast. Once seated we discovered there were two choices for a set breakfast. Both very similar. Coffee, orange juice and a pastry. Exactly what i fancied, but it wasn't quite what i was expecting.... More

This is restaurant on the main square just before the entrance to the medina. Long list of ice cream and gelato treats. Also small meals and snacks. Sit outside in the sun and relax to the sounds of the musicians that stroll fro place to place. Service was very fast. Good coffee and Lattes.
