Prague Ice Cream Gelato Places to Try
It’s getting hot in the city and you’re looking to cool down. Prague Ice Cream Gelato may be on your mind so here are 4 places that I’ve been to and enjoyed. Two are Old Town and two are Lesser Town. So we are talking about Ice Cream Gelato, more milk, less fat and importantly less air in the mix so you’ll get your monies worth both in terms of volume and the stronger taste. Look out for seasonal additions. With the exception of Amorino below I expect to pay CZK25-CZK30 per scoop plus the cornet/cup so expect around CZK75 per person for a double scoop.
Prague Ice Cream Gelato – Creme de la Creme
Let’s start with my favourite Creme de la Creme at Husova 12 in the Old Town. They have a few places to sit down in the cafe but I usually take away a cornet or cup with 2 scoops. I do try different things and they’ve got more than 20 options at any given time. In the past I’ve tried the Peach and Prosecco (bit sweet for me) and a kind of Mojito Gelato (strong mint flavour). In the picture I’m just tucking into my favourite combination of coconut and salted caramel (my wife had gone for salted peanut and grenadine). They have other cafe/shops in the city but only this one is Gelato.
Prague Ice Cream Gelato – Puro
NOTE: POSSIBLY GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. Puro has several locations and not all offer the same stuff. The shop at Kaprova 11 has closed but the website is still running. Around 16 varying choices all year but the thing is that they have a summer season and a winter season. Yes, I know, gelato in winter? These guys go the extra mile with seasonal early autumn flavours like pumpkin, ginger and cinnamon which go well with a hot chocolate drink and this is my favourite place for Prague Ice Cream Gelato with waffles.
Prague Ice Cream Gelato – Amorino
I was actually told about this place by American walking tour clients who had stumbled across it only the day after it opened on the Lesser Town Square number 38 (on the corner of Mostecka). I didn’t know at the time that it’s an international chain so if you know it then you’ll recognise the offer. This is high-end stuff. It looks like a huge offer but just to point out, some of the pots have sorbet, not gelato so overall it’s a choice of between 16 and 20 gelato options. It’s certainly the most decorative cornet I’ve ever had and the gelato macarons gave the nerves in my teeth some exercise. They go to great lengths to explain the ingredients for allergy sufferers to be aware of. But although it’s a high quality offer and great service, it’s a little too pricey for regular eating for me.
Prague Ice Cream Gelato – Angelato
At the time of writing they had two shops. One in the Old Town (Rytirska 27) and the other in the Lesser Town at Ujezd 24. This is the one at the very edge of the Lesser Town and to be honest, just outside. Get off at the Ujezd tram stop. On the park side of the road is the Funicular going up the hill or you might be visiting the Monument to Communist Political Prisoners. On the opposite side is the Hotel Roma. Angelato is in the same building as the Hotel. The first time I came here I got off the tram to see what people were queuing for. They were out the door and 30m down the road. Like Amorino, very aware of ingredients, good selection of flavours with monthly seasonal additions. On this day I went for Rhubarb mainly because I’d never had Prague Ice Cream Gelato made from Rhubarb and usually you have to add a fair amount of sugar to take the sharp edge off but it was fine. I’ve stopped here again with walking tour clients as we walk along that side of the river. I wouldn’t make a special trip to it but as long as I’m in the area, I’ll stop.
