One of our favorite pastimes in summer is clearly eating ice cream. Sometimes in a cup, sometimes in a crispy waffle, on a cookie or on a warm waffle with cream and sauce. For those who like to walk through Schöneberg and Steglitz with a passion for ice cream, we have selected our 11 favorite ice cream parlors.
The ice-cream biscuit creations from Jones are nothing new for Berliners with a sweet tooth – the baby blue food truck is regularly at the Bite Club and Street Food Thursday. Since 2017 there are varieties like “Salted Butter Caramel” and “Grapefruit & Earl Gray” now finally in the colorful Akazienkiez. In keeping with the cold season, Gabrielle and Jan now also offer creamy hot chocolate (warning: addictive!) And delicious waffles. They taste even better with cream, chocolate sauce, powdered sugar or a scoop of ice cream.
Madagascar vanilla and black sesame at Berlin Homemade Ice Cream
In Schöneberger Akazienkiez there are several ice cream parlors that we visit regularly in summer, one of which is Berlin Homemade Icecream . The small shop scores with real taste, high quality and delicious varieties such as pear sorbet, black sesame and Madagascar vanilla. There are no aromatic pastes in the ice cream, only real fruits and homemade creams. You are not allowed to try your way through the varieties before ordering and I would not ask for sprinkles either. The owners certainly don’t get the price for the friendliest service, but the ice cream tastes fantastic and is worth a trip to Schöneberg.
Sip ice cream at Franken & Grunewald
Cups instead of balls: At Franken & Grunewald in Schöneberg, instead of individual balls, you can also sniff delicious cups. It’s not fancy, but that has never bothered the spaghetti ice cream, the tiramisu or the chocolate cup earlier than it does today. And let’s be honest, is there anything better than frozen cream in an ice cream sundae? Just.
Delicious ice cream from our own production at Eisfee
In the case of the ice fairy, only what goes on the small sign at the end goes into the ice. Organic milk, real fruits or Sicilian pistachios, but no additives or flavor enhancers. As in Italy, the ice cream is poured into the waffle or mug with a spatula. The Eisfee is now available four times in Berlin: in Schöneberg, Friedenau, Steglitz and Tempelhof.
Peruvian specialties and ice cream in Esmeralda’s Inca Café
Lucuma ice cream, Peruvian chocolate and Chicha Morada ice cream are just three types that Esmeralda Madlonado offers in her Inca Café . Her predecessor, Gerhard Eilers, who also comes from Lima, relied on Peruvian specialties – both savory and sweet. The café in Schöneberger Akazienkiez has breakfast, empanadas, ice cream, hot dishes and damn good piscos.
Lemon and cinnamon ice cream with vanilla & apricot
Those who love Vanille & Apricot ice cream are in luck, because there are five ice cream parlors in Berlin and one in Potsdam. Everything homemade, everything delicious. With varieties such as peanuts with home-baked brownies or lemon-cinnamon, you are always looking forward to the next lick.
Delicious ice cream (without egg) lick Henry’s Homemade Ice Cream
“Ice cream is the perfect combination of good food, friends and enjoyment,” says Sabine. In 2014, after a while in London, the Berliner opened her ice cream parlor Henrys in Steglitz. Here she offers homemade ice cream. Organic milk and cream, real fruits and brownies, biscuits and the like from our own production are processed. Eggs are not used in ice cream production and the sugar content is also kept as low as possible. In addition to (vegan) sorbets, there are also vegan varieties such as almond and chocolate ice cream.
Coffee, cake and ice cream in the Nunzio CLOSED
This small, great and extremely popular cafe is only a stone’s throw away from Schloßstraße in Steglitz. The Nunzio places a lot of emphasis on quality and friendliness, just as we like it. As far as possible, the products are regional and seasonal, often even directly from Berlin. In summer you can cool off with a scoop of ice cream, if you can leave it with a scoop, and tempting cake creations take center stage in the colder months. Try the salty caramel ice cream, the cheesecake or the banana bread!
Peach prosecco ice cream and stracciatella with Lauter ice cream
At Lauter Eis in Steglitz, in addition to classics such as chocolate, stracciatella and strawberry, you can also get more unusual types of ice cream such as saffron, vanilla balsamic vinegar or peach prosecco. In total, the offer includes over 80 different types of ice cream, including milk ice cream and vegan sorbets. The types of ice cream change depending on the season. In autumn come quince, cinnamon, in summer rhubarb or gooseberry.
Award-winning vanilla ice cream and DIY cups at IceGuerilla
At IceGuerilla you have the choice between a mug, a black waffle and a homemade pop waffle, the latter being more of a meal than a small snack. EisGuerilla comes from Beeskow, the homemade ice cream can also be bought in the online shop and in 2012 the vanilla ice cream was voted the best vanilla ice cream in Germany. In the small shop on Schloßstraße you can order varieties such as caramel cream puffs, mango, crepe ice cream or aperol spritz. There are also various toppings and sauces. Most of the ice cream production uses organic products and ingredients from the region.
Gluten-free bakery-pastry shop Eiscafe Voh
If you have gluten on your black list, you should write the gluten-free bakery-pastry shop Voh in the address book. The Friedenau opponents of gluten have been regular guests here since 2011 and stock up on cakes, bread and ice cream. So if you yourself are always looking for the GF in the menu or if you visit one of your “Zölli” friends again, go to Friedenau and make him happy with a delicious piece of cake without any grain.
