All sunny days in Copenhagen are good days for ice cream. My favorite ice cream place is called Olufs Is and is situated at Østerbro. At Olufs Is they make Italian ice cream sticks.

I’ve been to Olufs Is many times. I’ve been there with friends, with colleagues and with the Film Critic Guy. It’s a tiny little shop, almost like a hole in the wall. “Take away-ice cream”. Some people buy their ice cream sticks and go for a walk, other people find a bench or a sunny spot on the sidewalk in the small street where Olufs Is is situated.

My biggest problem when visiting Olufs Is is to decide what I want. Something with nuts, strawberries or mango? Should it be covered in chocolate? What kind of chocolate should it be covered in? Should it be sorbet? Creamy? There are almost too many option, and even if I’ve been their quite a few times now, I end up spending several minutes in front of all the options, trying to decide. Every time I promise my friends or the Film Critic Guy that I will be faster next time. Which means that we have to visit again. Win!
