Find a good ice cream in Amsterdam is not so easy... That is the reason this ice cream is so special.
They have the Italian "spirit".
Normally is a place that open 6 months per year... so if you are walking around the Jordaan area it is good to try some of the nice flavors they have.
They are in a street which have many restaurants and some people like to have a dessert there as we had once.
You can choose different sizes and flavors and the price is quite good for the quality you get.
They are open since 10.00 to 22.00 in Summer...
The service is normal. They are really trying to make the queue smaller.
Recommendation: if you want an ice go for this. Wait 10 or 15 minutes to queue up, but get something good.

On both occasions we visited Monte Pelmo, there was a huge queue so we decided to queue up too and find out why. This seems to be a popular post dinner stop in the Jordaan and we were not surprised that the ice cream is fabulous! We sampled the cheesecake, stroopwaffel and the heavenly yoghurt ice cream, all of which were completely moreish. We couldn't help returning the next day and noted that lots of new flavours were available. Thankfully the aforementioned yoghurt ice cream was still available. The ice cream is very reasonably priced and the scores of people we saw walking around with little tubs and smiles on their faces spoke volumes about the quality of the product. Don't miss it!

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!

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.

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.
