You know the playword the little kids have: "I scream, you scream, we all scream for icecream!" - I love this play especially during summertime. There are 2 great places in Krakow to have some icecream and one of these 2 places - to my shame - I have found out about only after 4 years living in this beautiful city. Both places have homemade icecream and truly it is hard for me to tell which one is better. For me both locations have the best icecream I ever ate, since I was a wee lass :) One is in Kazimierz (Jewish Area) and one is in Podgorze, as you cross the pedestrian bridge (the one with the love locks). Today I will tell you about this years last icecream I ate, in a lovely warm September day...
Apparently each year people vote for the best icecream place in the Lesser Poland region (Malopolska). It seems that this year Delikatesowo Kraków won again first place, with almost 2500 voices pro this homemade local shop. Continuously since 2005 in Krakow, the shop tries to meet the clients expectations by serving natural homemade ice cream - and other products as well ;) The shop can be found on Brodzińskiego 1 - open Mondays to Fridays from 6:30 am to 8 pm; Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm & Sundays between 10 am and 5 pm.
With no presence - as far as I could research - on TripAdvisor, mostly local people know about this magical place. All the traffic is here by locals, word-of-mouth advertising & the helpful hand of the team from FreeWalkingTourKrakow, that sometimes (during summer) takes the visitors of Krakow on the Krakow Food Tour, to this lovely place :) The presence online is very good, both from the Internet Page (Polish only) and for the Facebook Page (Polish only) - over 3400 people like their page and the 57 reviews rated this place 4.9 out of 5 stars! The icecream is truly homemade, you can feel that as soon as you take the first lick! The lady serving is very nice but she does not speak English - you an point things out for her and smile ;) she will help you! I recommend the one made out of roses & the one made out of lemons - the contrast is amazing and the rose one has pieces of sugared rose petals in it ;))) Enjoy!
Inside the Delikatesowo Krakow, in Podgorze, you can pay only cash. Make sure you have enough money extracted from an ATM machine. A cup of homemade icecream costs 2,50 zloty (less than an euro). Once you finish it, come by and let me know if you liked it :)
