This cute little convenience store right at the foot of Mirador San Nicholas was charming and had everything we needed for our visit. It has a great fridge stocked with every kind of beer you could possibly want as well as Vino Tinto which is...like red wine mixed with lemonade. Its an absolute favorite in Spain and was the best possible drink for the warm day while sitting on the ledge watching the sun set. The shop is primarily an ice cream shop and had some incredible flavors. I got Lavender and Jasmine and they were both absolutely incredible for anyone that likes subtly sweet refreshing flavors.More

We had just arrived in Granada and were walking around and decided to have some gelato. I had some excellent strawberry and hazelnut and husband had mango and lemon. Very warm day and it hit the spot!

Homemade icecream with a WOW factor. Whilst there are some more regular flavours- the pistachio is excellent - there are other more exotic flavours- Jasmin, hibiscus and lavender. These were just wonderful and a delightful tastebud treat ! Owner is friendly and happy which always...helps.More

I’ve only tried some but they were really good, and the fact that there are lots of uncommon flavours makes this ice-cream place worth visiting. Pistacho flavour is a must, the best I’ve ever tried. Also tried other flower flavours like Jazmin and Hibiscus, both...very tasteful and exquisite. Also the woman working there very nice! She even let us try some before deciding (I hope I don’t ruin you with that comment haha)More

This is the place to go!! We've had ice cream all over the world, and this is definitely in the top 5 for both choice and taste. Add to this the wonderful owner/craftsman, who told us how he makes up flavors and seems to really...love his creations, and you'll get an ice cream store that shouldn't be missed!More

This is just below the Mirador de San Nicolas viewpoint, down a small flight of steps. There is an ATM next to the door but it does charge €3 if you want to take out any money. I tried jasmine and hibiscus the first time...we visited (never encountered either of those flavours in ice cream before) and lavender the second. Both times, the ice cream was smooth and delicately flavoured. This place is worth the climb through the Albayzin.More

Very close to the San Nicolas Mirador. We had a very ordinary tasting milkshake , more milk than milkshake.

Found this little spot walking by San Nicolas with some of the best views in Granada. The place doesn’t look like much but they had a variety of delicious flavors of ice cream - and the server was very knowledgeable about gluten free. Try the...lavender ice cream if you get a chance !More

After trekking to the top of Granada there is no better experience than an ice cream whilst overlooking the beautiful Alhambra. I got my vegan mango slushie for €3 and it was amazing.
