Best ice cream in Copenhagen

From one day to another Copenhagen went from having the coldest spring I can remember to almost summer. I mean, seriously, what happened? I know that Danes love to talk about the weather, but these days it actually makes sense to do so, because everyone is so surprised!

I’m spending almost all my time infront of the computer, finishing the work for my second cook book. I don’t have time to lie on a blanket in the park all day (I wish I had!), so I have to settle for smaller breaks in the sun instead. And what do you do in a short sunny break? That’s right, you eat ice cream.

Copenhagen has several good ice cream places, but if you ask me, these are the three best ice cream places.

Nicecreamcopenhagen
Nicecreamcopenhagen serves vegan ice cream. I’m not a vegan, but I could talk for quite a while why this is such a genius business idea. However, I’m not sure how fun it is to listen to, so I’ll save that talk for later. What I do want to tell you though, is that this place makes absolutely delicious ice cream. It’s SO worth a visit.
Address: Nicecreamcopenhagen, Elmegade 30, Nørrebro

IstidKBH
This is a crazy place that totally deserves a spot in a top list like this one. IstidKBH makes their ice cream with fluid nitrogen, so after you’ve picked a flavor (they usually have 3-5 flavors you can choose between) they pour the liquid in a KitchenAid, add fluid nitrogen and 30 seconds later your ice cream is served. That’s cool. And good.
Address: IstidKBH, Jægersborggade 13, Nørrebro (this one is usually closed during winter)

Siciliansk Is
This cutie is situated inside my favorite beer bar in Copenhagen. I mean, what a perfect match! Siciliansk Is makes Italian ice cream and instead of picking how many flavors you want, you pick how big a waffle or cup you want, and then you always get three flavors. That’s my kind of ice cream place!
Address: Siciliansk Is, Inside Kølsters Tolv Haner, Rantzausgade 56, Nørrebro (this one is usually closed during winter)
