Description: Es un pequeño y cuidado establecimiento donde además de los helados italianos hechos según las más estrictas normas artesanales, la gente puede disfrutar de repostería hecha a diario. Todo artesanal, hecho en nuestro obrador, y se puede acompañar por un buen café en el local o la agradable terraza en una calle peatonal.Los pilares de DelaCrem “son la producción diaria – lo que producimos acaba siempre directamente en la barra de los helados, fresco y cremoso – y la selección personal de los ingredientes. Los buscamos ahí donde son mejores. La mejor nata fresca de granja. He ido probando y me he quedado con los chocolates que considero mejores. Los huevos, el mató, el yogurt son frescos y naturales. La avellana es la misma que me enamoró en Italia. El pistacho lo importo de Bronte, la patria del pistacho mediterráneo; el turrón es de Jijona; el dulce de leche viene de Argentina y la vainilla de Madagascar. La fruta, de temporada, la compramos en los mercados de la ciudad o, cuando hay que controlar aún más su grado de madurez, en las tiendas de fruta del barrio. Ni hablar de colorantes o conservantes.”La especialidad de la casa es el affogato de chocolate caliente. Consiste en dos bolas de helado ahogadas en un chocolate recién ‘deshecho’ o un café espresso. ¡Delicioso!

“Ice-cream loveliness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Nice little cafe made exceptional only by its ice-cream; many flavours available. We had the grapefruit and mint and it was gorgeous! Otherwise it was decent coffee and chocolate and hazelnut tart

“Great for drinks and ice cream...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

... but that's it. Make sure you don't come here if you're hungry, this is strictly an ice cream and coffee shop. TA needs to change the way they list these things. That being said, the service is great and so was our coffee and chai latte. The custard was way way too sweet. We didn't try the ice cream, but I guess it's supposed to be good. Sitting outside was ok, but the street was pretty loud.

Thank you Jordan, for your visit and opinion.
We agree with you: TA could mark more strongly the type of establishment. Your are not the first to say "it's not a restaurant". We want to comunicate at our best the kind of service we do. We wrote we are a café with homemade icecreams, cake and pastry. We care breakfast and our coffee and tea, but no meals at all.
We are sorry you were looking for something we are not, but that was not our intention.

“Every ice-cream lover should visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

A short walk from Placa Catalunya (10-15 minutes) and totally worth it. There was a long line of people waiting outside their door when we got there, but before we knew it, we were already inside ordering. The ice-cream was very good and I vowed to return for more on my next visit!

“Awesome ice cream, leave the brownies...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a gelato place and is highly rated because it has unusual flavours and excellently rich depth of flavour in the ice cream. It is by far one of the best ice creams I ever had. I had an amaretto ice cream which was heaven. Not much more to say as it is just a small gelataria but worth a visit. We shared a brownie as a takeaway too, but it was nothing special, and if anything a little dry. Overall worth going to if you're an ice cream lover!

“Best Gelato, Well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We ate a lot of Gelato on our visit to Barcelona. Thankfully this place was only a short walk from our hotel. Cheaper than some other places and much nicer. There is a good selection of delicious flavours, I tried five during my stay. Vanilla, coconut, Passionfruit, amaretto but my personal favourite was Mojito.
They also offer tarts, brownies & coffee. Delacrem was a very friendly little place, So make this one of the places you visit on your trip to Barcelona.
When we return this will be at the top of out list, Just delicious.
