This shop was near our apartment in Amsterdam. We had ice cream three times here! So very good! And since it was about a minute walk from our apartment, who could resist their ice cream? If you're in Amsterdam, find this shop and get ice cream from here.

Speaking as a local, Monte Pelmo has the best ice cream in Amsterdam. They make around 300 flavors but have a changing selection in the shop so when we go (2-3 times a week) there is always something different. Their white chocolate, cinnamon, frozen yoghurt & cheesecake variations are our favorites - especially Yoghurt Amarenen (cherry). They are unfortunately closed... More

Nice little ice cream parlour. Very popular, lots of flavours. About 8 were lactose-free sorbets - so nice to have so much choice! The Mango was amazing! (though the Cherry was a little icy)

Went on the advice of a local and then went back again. The real deal ice cream, with flavours from sweet to savoury. Simply the best I've tasted. Tip: Queue can get long (but moves steadily), so give yourself at least 1/2hr before closing time.

This tiny shop, on a tiny street, has been a destination for locals for decades on warm Amsterdam evenings. I'm guessing that there are more than 30 flavours, all made on the premises, at don't-hold-back prices. They have sugar-free icecreams too, usually only a single flavour, and you have to ask specially.

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

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
