Summer brings with it many pleasures - outdoor drinking, open-air cinemas, music festivals and cooling down in a pool. But the chief among these seasonal delights is a visit to an ice-cream parlor on hot days. Here are 5 places serving killer ice cream this summer.
Rytířská (Prague 1) and Újezd (Prague 1)
Monday – Sunday: 11 am till 10 pm (in summer)
Probably the most popular spot for an ice cream. Both its location makes Angelato a "must visit" before (or after) a long walk in Prague. They're serving up classic ice cream flavors alongside some more inventive creations every month (e.g. pumpkin, spinach lavender or even parmesan – which is my favorite one). So why not step out of your vanilla/chocolate comfort zone to try one of their strange flavors when you're here?
V Celnici (Prague 1)
Monday – Friday: 8,30 am till 10,30 pm
Saturday – Sunday: 9,30 am till 11 pm
Cacao Café Lounge offers not only freshly prepared ice cream but also a big choice of superfood cocktails, raw desserts and other healthy products. They serve more than 20 seasonal ice cream and sorbets, so there will be plenty to choose from, but anything chocolate seems like a good way to go.
Créme De La Créme
Husova (Prague 1)
Monday – Sunday: 10 am till 11 pm
You never know exactly which flavors will appear as part of the weekly-changing lineup at this popular spot, but they always make room for the classic flavors of chocolate, vanilla or caramel. On top of that they're open till 11 pm, just in case you suddenly get a craving for an ice-cream late at night...
Gelateria & Caffé Amato
Heřmanova (Prague 7)
Monday – Sunday: 10 am till 8 pm
This awesome ice cream spot is a neighborhood favorite (but well worth the trip) with location in Letná. The flavors are simple but classic and extremely rich and creamy—with options ranging from watermelon with chocolate curls to mango with star anise. New release: lemon flavor with a low glycemic index suitable for diabetics.
Nine branches all over Prague
The menu is simple: choose from extra dark chocolate, pistachio, nutty scoop or by the locals adored - strawberries and bananas. You can also get sundaes, various cakes or even "chlebíčky" (Czech open sandwiches). Our insider tip is to grab a scoop of ice cream in their central location in the Světozor Pasáž and savor your treat among the roses in Františkánské zahrady just down the passage.
Náplavka River Bank (Prague 2) and Kaprova (Prague 1)
Monday – Sunday: 9 am till 9 pm
This cozy, lovely café is located just next to Prague river bank Náplavka or close to the Astronomical clock and also makes phenomenal ice cream. With inventive flavors ranging from poppy seed to basil – garden cress, a long line out the door is to be expected on hot summer days. Whether you're on your way to Vyšehrad or Saturdays farmers' market nearby, it's worth trying.
