Best ice cream in town

Oficina do Sorvete serves sandwiches (like subway does) and more than 50 ice cream flavors. Pick as many flavors as you wish and choose from different toppings, fruits and sauces (white chocolate, bananas and strawberries are among the best). You'll receive a payment ticket and can pay after you've... read more

They have good icecream. Expensive but good. We ordered one iced coffee and they gave us espresso. When we told them it was wrong they didn't say sorry or offer to make it right, they just blamed a coworker. We even asked in Portuguese.

Huge selection of delicious ice cream flavours with toppings. You pay by weight and the prices are very reasonable. Also serves drinks and lunches.

The ice cream "Fabrica do Sorvete" is like the Bariloche's ice cream - the best ice cream in the world.

First the good things: beautiful place, good parking, great looking ice cream. The bad: horrible service, they should be ashamed. We went here to get 2 strawberry splits and the place was more or less empty. There was plenty of staff doing nothing at all so we placed our order and to our shocking surprise, the staff started arguing amongst... More

The 15cm sandwich was around $3-$4. We had the Peru and the Beef. Both were adequate. For my taste it had a bit too much cheese and a little too few veggies, but I guess It's mostly my fault for not knowing enough Portuguese to ask them to modify the recipe! :)

Since they offer countless flavours, my suggestion is to take the most exotic and mix a couple of them. You can also taste them before choosing. As you pay by weight, you can fit this in your own budget.

Great choice of flavours but the taste is quite mediocre. I have had much better ice cream in Brazil.

A massive per kilo ice cream buffet, so yummy and a local manufacturer so you are helping out the local economy in more than way. Well worth a trip.
