Mistura is a Spanish ice cream shop, which already has 5 shops in Madrid and an option for delivery. The owners, Carlos Sotomayor and Carmelo Rodríguez, were inspired by a shop on their trip to India, where they developed a very different way of mixing flavours and textures. All their products are artisan, without additives and low in fats and sugar; so it makes it a great option if you are looking for a healthy and refreshing snack. They also offer lactose-free, vegetarian and vegan products.

To finish with, you also get to personalize your ice cream with a variety of toppings from different types of nuts, jams, fruit, and chocolate. Impossible to resist!

The Zucchi family recipes have been part of their business for generations and result in an incredible selection of more than 70 flavours, including Mascarpone with coffee, hazelnut cream with white chocolate or “Grandma’s crunchy”. The only challenge will be to make a choice of what flavour you are going to pick.

Los Alpes is a story of love and tradition. Founded in 1950 by an Italian man and his Spanish wife, today is still run by their grandchildren, who maintain the original spirit of this traditional ice cream parlour that has become a real institution in Madrid City.

Located in Moncloa area, this famous shop offers more than 80 different ice cream flavours made with the best ingredients, such as lemons from Murcia and pistachios from Sicily. Our favourite choices are blueberries, arroz con leche or their famous egg yolk ice cream. Their artisanal horchata is also a must!

Rocambolesc is an ice cream parlour created by famous chef Jordi Roca and his wife, Mexican pastry chef Alejandra Rivas, in 2012. Since they first opened in the centre of Girona, now they are the owners of several ice cream parlours throughout all of Spain. This is much more than an ice cream shop, it is a laboratory of flavours, colours and mixtures in the style of Willy Wonka itself.

Enjoy their exquisite creations, like coconut sorbet with violet or their famous panet: a brioche filled with ice cream. Besides, you can also choose among up to 32 exquisite toppings.

For the final touch, they create special products based on different festivities or trends, like the exclusive collection, based on Stranger Things that they released last year.
