This place has great gelato. But if you want a dessert that is truly amazing, get the donut like thing that they offer. It is insanely good. Worth the wait in line!

This is the sweetest addition to the Roca-brothers gourmet and star-loaded em.
Step into the Willy Wonka inspired and fun interior where the vintage ice cream shop meets a quirky factory.

Although the over-bright lighting takes away the charm I hoped to experience after seeing all the pictures of the ice cream shop on the internet, the service is impeccable.
Choose from the fresh made flavours and let the vendor guide you to select the perfect toppings (ranging from fresh fruit, chocolate flakes, sesame seeds to even cotton candy).

My favourite (see picture) : mango with crispy sesame seeds and blueberries!

You'll pay more than in the touristy ice cream stand, but the experience is one not to be missed when visiting Girona.

There is not that much else to add from the other excellent reviews other that that is a must to visit when in Girona if you love ice cream or chocolate. Excellent ice cream and a very lice interior of the shop! Well done again by the Can Roca brothers!

This gelateria was founded by famous brothers Roca which restaurant is top N1 in the world. Ice-cream is fantastic here. A whole pattern of unusual tastes including bacon and classic options like mango and vanilla. But everything is done for perfection. Modern décor and creative recipes. Grilled ice-cream hamburgers are awesome. A lot of different toppings and scents. A must stop during your trip to Girona.

Given the store is part of the Roca brothers empire it is worth visit for that reason alone. It is a small store on a main street we visited after taking a poor offer of what passed as lunch at Taverna Catalana. I do like an ice cream and I guess the shop hankers back to a more bygone era with a very modern twist.

We tried a couple of cones, one chocolate and one baked apple they were both excellent. Worth a visit.
