3+1 extraordinary ice cream parlours in Budapest
Posted by Mia Balogh · Jun 15, 2016

These ice cream parlours are offering very good ice cream and all of them are truly special – which one would you visit first?

Gelarto Rosa

Taste isn’t everything, we are also looking for beauty and artistic form. Do you agree? Then try Gelarto Rosa at the St. Stephen’s Basilica. You will see where to go, because there is always a long queue to be seen. Their secret is simple but great: cold, creamy and really good ice cream served in beautifully arranged rose shape, it is so good to see how these beautiful and tasty ice creams are created! Try their sorbets or macarons, as well, you won’t be disappointed.

Address: 5th district, Szent István Sqaure 3.

Gelateria Pomo D’Oro

If you like Italian ice cream, you will love Gelateria Pomo D’Oro. This is the little sister of the well-known Pomo D’Oro restaurant, and brings the same quality and Italian hospitality. Try salted caramel, this is our favourite there.

Address: 5th district, Arany János Street 12.


You can find several Fragola ice cream parlours in Budapest, and if you like extraordinary flavours, we really suggest you to try some of their high-quality ice cream selection: Apple pie, Chili fondante, Basil-lemon, Mascarpone-chestnut and Nutella are waiting for you for less than 1 euro (280 HUF). The sugar free flavours are a little bit more expensive, 300 HUF a scoop, but these are really tasty, as well. If you prefer the classic flavours, don’t worry: you can choose Strawberry, Chocolate, Ginger or Pistachios, too.

Address: they have various spots in the city, for more details check out their Facebook page.


Technically, this isn’t an ice-cream parlour, but Popsi offers icy and fruity popsicles – small bars crystallized with real fruit in flavours like green apple, apricot, orange, passion fruit, cherry, coconut, pineapple, and more, all free of artificial colouring or bulking agents. Their products are water based so you can enjoy licking a Popsi (it is also a pun because popsi means buttocks in Hungarian) even if you are lactose-intolerant.

Address: 8th district, Kazinczy Street 18. and in Gozsdu Court
