Summer is. here.

What more does Summer (and our Instagram) call for than ice-cream? Cape Town houses some of the most delicious and creamy ice-cream that this country has to offer! See our list of top-picks below:

1. The Creamery

If you read anything about ice-creams in Cape Town, you will have heard about The Creamery. They offer flavours such as Peanut Butter, Rosetta Roastery Coffee, Sea Salt Caramel, and Sweet Cream. Every month they have a new flavour to try, and try you must! Besides being dotted around Cape Town, you can also find them at popular markets like the V&A Waterfront’s Food Market and the Earth Fair Markets in the CBD on Thursdays!

2. More Gelato

And more we want.  Their Gelato is freshly made with local produce and spices and even have a vegan-friendly sorbet. Their pastel-coloured parlour on Long Street is Wes Anderson perfection and they’re open till late. They’re also at the Oranjezicht City Farm Market at the V&A Waterfront on Saturdays. Our favourite flavor and a definite must-try is the Pistachio!

3. Unframed

Unframed cater to the sophisticated palette. They also have a big variety for vegans and the lactose intolerant, which has made them a favourite on the popular Kloof Street in Cape Town. They make their ice cream from scratch using seasonal ingredients, meaning their offering is rich in taste and mostly guilt-free! They have ten rotating flavours with at least two sorbets and three vegan offerings available at all time.

4. The Dairy Den

Situated in Sea Point, this sweet spot offers delicious soft serves in black Oreo cones (yum!). It is very important to note that they also sell instagram-worthy doughnuts. You can find their store on Main Road is just a few minutes away from the promenade.
