I came here in Gamla Stan for the 'famous ice-cream', and even I left with more than what I had expected! Flavours ranging from Pecan to Saffron & Honey to Liquorice, this place has it all! Not just ice-cream either - delicious buns, coffees and other sweets are abundant in this store, and with very kind and attentive owners this... More

We only visited two ice cream parlours in Stockholm but this is surely one of the best. By any standard they had an overwhelming selection of flavours and flavour combos. Lemon liquorice was surprisingly good! We wanted to try about 6 flavours each.... The waffle cones are huge and homemade and they have waffles and all sorts of other stuff... More

This is a great ice cream place with a huge number of flavours on offer. The cones are home made on the premises. Not cheap but great.

Friendly service. We had ice creams there, portions were very generous-sized. Gluten-free and other allergene information is very well displayed. For once we didn't have to remind the staff to use different ice cream scoop for gluten-free and "normal" cones!

One of the best ice cream I ever had in this very cute café/ice cream parlor in the old part of Stockholm. Everything else looked very yummy too Really the perfect place to stop after having walked for hours in this beautiful city!

I'm not sure if it's the best icecream in town but it's really delicious. Fresh waffles. You have a lot of choice and some more unusual tastes like Marc de Champagne-Hazelnut. The Tiramisu icecream is exceptional :-)

Were looking for a table in the sun, a quick meal and a beer. Cafe Järntorget could provide it all, although service could have been better and the price level is a bit over average. But a table in sun on a cold day in Stockholm made it worth the price.

There is not much to say. The ice cream I tasted was very good!. The reason I "only" give 4 stars is because it is crowded and I felt I had to hurry up to order. But it is worth the effort Prices are high (but so are they most places in Stockholm) but being in such a touristy place,... More

Had absolutely delicious ice cream, especially the coconut and licorice flavoured ones. Will definitely go again next time I'm in Stockholm. It's small, and cramped, but exploring Gamla Stan with delicious ice cream in your hand is the best.

If what you want is many flavors of excellent ice cream in home-made (FRESH) waffle cones, this is your place! If you want to sit and talk with someone or have a meeting, it's not the best... cramped and noisy. But there is often music outside, since it is right on the square. The chicken pie with bacon is also... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
