Brozen, St Nicholas Market
Since the 1970s this parlour has graced the Cheltenham Road, and it specialises in traditional Italian savouries and sweets. Some of the most delicious include mouth-watering milkshakes, served with fresh ice-cream. They also serve ice cream which has been made using liquid nitrogen, with delicious results. Choose from a large range of flavours, from chocolate orange to rhubarb and custard, with everything in between.
Swoon, College Green
Gelato has a well-deserved reputation for being the denser, milkier version of ice cream. Swoon is leading the popularisation of this delicious treat, which is fast becoming a favourite nationwide. Look out for flavours such as cherry cheesecake, chocolate brownie and salted caramel, as well as guest flavours, ‘swoondaes’ and gelato cakes.
Oliver’s Ice Cream, Cargo 2 at Wapping Wharf
Despite having opened its doors a mere few weeks ago, Oliver’s is already proving a massive hit with locals and visitors alike. Thatchers Gold cider ice cream is just one of the unusual flavours they have on offer within their large range of ice creams and sorbets.
Kaspa’s, Park Street
Looking for a sugar fix? The Kaspa’s is your place. Garish for sure, but a fantastic place to take the kids for that extra special holiday treat.
Flour and Ash, Cheltenham Road
This is primarily a pizza place, but Flour and Ash are also gaining a reputation as the go-to restaurant for even the most discerning of ice cream lovers.
