Ice cream heaven? That is Angelato! This ice-cream is made in the original artisanal way not by an Italian, but by a Macedonian Zlatko Kebakoski, but it does not detract from the quality! The secret of one of the best ice cream Prague is fresh ingredients and the art of making gelato even from non-traditional ingredients. The menu includes such flavors as jasmine rice, parmesan, gingerbread, avocado, pumpkin, etc. The offer also varies according to the season. For example, during the asparagus harvest season, you can try asparagus ice cream at Angelato. With these unique flavours, be prepared for long queues. But trust us, this experience is worth it!
Tip: We recommend you visit the Angelato branch in Újezd pod Petřínem and combine it with a romantic walk through Prague. Go for a stroll to Kampa, Charles Bridge or Petřín lookout tower.

If you ask someone where is the best ice cream in Prague and the answer is not Angelato, you can be sure that they will say Creme de la Creme, whose most famous branch is a short walk from the National Theatre. Aside from its favourable address, Creme de la Creme offers perhaps the largest variety of flavours, with salted peanut being one of the most famous. Vegans can choose not only from fruit sorbets, but also a range of non-fruit ice creams based on plant milks and natural chicory fibre. The advantage of this ice cream shop is the long opening hours, you can have ice cream even at 10 pm. Do you think that there's nothing like having enough ice cream (and we think the same!)? Just order an all-you-can-eat bottomless ice cream cup.
Tip: The Creme de la Creme National ice cream parlour is in the city centre, so you can walk around the Vltava River or pop into the National Theatre for a bit of culture.
Address: Křižíkova 197/37, Karlín, Prague 8
GPS: 50.09123, 14.44472
This bistro full of greenery in Prague's Karlín district is not exactly an ice cream shop, but it offers unique ice cream sandwiches, parlors. The two cookies are joined by ice cream and you can arrange them according to your taste. First you choose a cookie that they make themselves, then you choose from 12 artisan ice creams and toppings.
Tip: If you can't get enough of the sweet stuff, try their cakes; guests rate them as the best in Prague.
Address: Slezská 15, Vinohrady, Prague 2
GPS: 50.07638, 14.44168
A more modest, modern place with a few tables to sit, which relies on traditional, first republic recipes and tried and tested ice cream flavours. The permanent menu always includes the 4 most popular ones - vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and pistachio, plus another 12 varieties including sorbets. While the scoops don't overflow out of the cone like some other ice cream parlours, this place has become very popular in recent years - the ice cream tastes simply great.
Gelateria & Caffè Amato
Address: 2 branches
Prague 1: Vodičkova 4 ( “U Itala”), GPS: 50.0784, 14.42172
Prague 7: Kamenická 30, GPS: 50.10026, 14.42738
Italian gelato in Prague offering interesting and unusual flavours such as liquorice, gorgonzola with nuts, tangerine or tomato with raspberries. The gelato is made from local ingredients, so the offer also depends on the season. Children can taste the ice cream lollipops.
Tip: In 2019, a second branch was opened in the former historic Italian pastry shop, which was nicknamed "U Itala" by the Prague residents. Since it's right in the city centre just off Vodičkova Street, you can pop in between shopping on Wenceslas Square.
You can also enjoy delicious ice cream in Prague while waiting for the tram. Right next to the bus stop on Náměstí Míru is the unassuming Vanille confectionery, where they have delicious ice cream in unusual flavours such as cucumber and mint or coffee flavour. From the bus stop in Vodičkova Street, just a few steps away is the Světozor with its time-tested strawberry-banana ice cream.
The latest hit of the Prague ice cream scene are ice cream rolls - the rolled ice cream. We recommend trying that one from Rolls Bros. You can try this ice cream at various food festivals or even farmers' markets on Náplavka. Or simply pop into their branch at Karlova 3, Prague 1.
