In Italy they have great ice cream but when I first got one at Monte Pelmo, ports of heaven opened up. The people are super kind, working hard and making the best ice creams!

Best ice cream shop in Amsterdam! Also in one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Perfect to take an ice cream and wander around the canals. Good price, lots of flavours, all delicious (although I love mokka, caramel cream...) and nice staff!

We're so amazed at the prices for gourmet ice cream compared to Los Angeles. This place is a perfect after-dinner dessert. Order up your favorite two scoop ice cream, they'll top it with an adorable mini cone, and then you'll continue your stroll through the city. There was a 5 minute wait when we went, but it was very much... More

I had the the black walnut and sesame with the cinnamon (keeln?) together was really good...bf had Kinder (like the candy) was good too. A nice place to try.... also, it is away from the tourists so makes it nice.

We were sitting at a local cafe and kept seeing people walking by with ice cream that looked delicious. So after lunch, we skipped dessert and decided to discover this wonder down the street. So glad we did. When we got there, it was lined out the door and for very good reason. I had a scoop of the Carmel... More

We found this place by chance while walking around the Jordaan. It is the best ice cream we've had in Amsterdam. There is usually a waiting line and in summer weekends it can be quite long, but they are fast and most flavors are good. We ride our bikes all across the city just to get ice cream here.

Summer time is walking or biking to Monte Pelmo after dinner for a scoop or more. Love the pistachio or try more adventurous flavours. In the summer is always a long queue, worth the wait.

AMAZING gelato. Texture and flavour were only found in my most recent trip to Florence and that says a lot. Go there now!

I might have been super stoned, but this is still one of the best ice creams I've had in ages and I google search best gelato in every European country I travel to so that says a lot!

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
