“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Loved the ice-cream and the round biscuit on top - it really is needed. Always tried the creamy/coffee/caramel flavors. Havent tried any of the fruity ones because everyday there was a new flavor that I drooled over the name of and went straight ahead to. Their ice-cream is homemade so they juggle around the flavors on the menu everyday but Im sure you will always find something good. Highly recommended flavor: Stroopwaffel cheescake!

“Consistant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

We visited Monte Pelmo for the second time tonight. Both times it had a long line and the ice cream was consistently good. The first night I got chocolate and strawberry. The chocolate was good but subtle, and the strawberry was more of a sorbet. Tonight I got caramel and white chocolate. The caramel was great,t he white chocolate was good but had a serious liquor taste.

There is nothing special about the service - they are trying to quickly get through long lines and they do so with a good attitude.

“Not Very Special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

I'm a local and live in the neighborhood. While there's nothing wrong with the ice cream, there's also nothing artisan or high quality about it either. Yes they have lots of flavors, and their prices are reasonable, but there's not a lot of difference with what you buy in the supermarket.

A few years ago it was a functioning ice cream factory that sold very nice ice cream. New owners have taken over the store front, and the quality has gone way down. If you're looking for really yummy ice cream, I'd look some place else.

“Perfect Spot- SOO GOOD :D”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

This was one of the very few not completely expensive snack plces we visited in amsteram, and it was full of locals so we knew it was good. they had amazing ice cream and a huge selection and the staff was all very helpful and friendly. it's not too far from the anne frank house and the neighborhood is very nice. Plus the ice cream was delicious. made for a perfect afternoon stop :)
