This is the best ice cream in Munich! It is well worth the wait, so don't get discouraged by the long cue. In warm summer months the cue goes quite long, but do wait. My favorites are chocolate and coconut!

One of the best ice creams in Munich. They use "real stuff" to make it. It always tastes good. They have a wide selection with some new unusual flavor.

This ice cream palour in the art district is to die for with creamy delights and fantastic fruity sorbets. I love sorbets and the chocolate-ginger one is the best! Try the mango sorbet too...unbeatable!

We wanted ice-cream after dinner so we typed in point of interest in the navigation system and it took us to Ballabeni. We saw the line up as we drove by and we knew we got to the right place. The line up was not too long, there are also places to stand outside the shop. It costs 1.50 Euro... More

Great ice cream, smallish serving by vaguely friendly staff. I like that they give you a little taster of another flavor with your order. I got a taster of rose and loved it so I went back to get it the next day and it was all gone! It is tiny, cash only, and there's a little bench outside to... More

The ice-cream is very tasty and there are every now and then new flavors. All of them are very nice! Every time they ask you if you want to try a bit of another flavor. I love the biscuit bowl, I would like to see a similar spoon in the future (difficult? maybe. Impossible? No!)! The prices are very good... More

The flavors sounded promising, unique and delicious. Don't get me wrong, they WERE. I am not a fan of chocolate but I tried their most recommended icream flavor, ginger chocolate, and it was pretty good! I got the apple strudel and the milk mint. I couldn't taste the mint at all, and the apple strudel was OK. The flavors weren't... More
