The mother and son duo behind Fryst use only all-natural ingredients. They continue to introduce new and often unusual flavors on a regular basis, including cardamom, rhubarb and champagne.
The name says it all: 18 Smaker (18 flavors). Prepare for your taste buds to start singing as you make your way through the selection. The flavors change with the season though licorice – a Stockholm favorite – always seems to be available.
Stikkinikki has become a staple for those who love authentic, ecological gelato. A wide array of toppings, “eco-sodas”, and ice cream floats round out the constantly changing menu. Don’t miss their pistachio – some say it’s the best in the city.

La Dolce Vita
While technically a café, Dolcevita is usually described as a taste of Italy in the north – and that has a lot to do with the homemade ice cream. Aficionados give both the pistachio and dark chocolate extremely high marks.
Prinsens gate 22
A cozy little shop that draws a crowd on even the coolest of days, Paradis Geletaria offers great views across the water to go with the wide range of flavors, which include pink grapefruit and butter-finger. You can also try the gelato balls.
Seek and you shall find
Tucked away at the back of a coffee shop, Iskrembaren at Håndverkeren does ice cream the old fashioned way: hot fudge sundaes, banana splits and malted milkshakes. Somewhat irregular hours mean you’ll feel like you hit the jackpot if you manage to catch them when they’re open.
Kongens gate 17
Fancy a sea buckthorn? Or zuppa inglese pistachio? Or maybe coconut and blood orange? You’ll find all these and many more flavors at this classic Italian gelateria. Don’t miss out on the ice cream-filled brioche.
Known for inventing the Danish ice cream bar and for serving chocolate marshmallow-drenched ice cream in homemade waffle cones bigger than a bread basket, Lydolph’s is a Copenhagen – and Danish – classic.
Turn back time
While the ice cream at Ismageriet has Italian flair, what really makes it shine is the dedication of the owner: Danish fruit, imported Italian nuts, and specially produced chocolate from France. All served up in a 50s ambience.
