This place is known for its creativity where it comes to new flavours – anyone for After Eight or peanut butter? It has won fans over the years with its sweet obsession for turning desserts into ice creams, such as cheesecake, pastel de nata (creamy custard tart) and lemon tart.

One of the latest ice cream parlours to open in town, run by two Italians, this has a seemingly infinite number of cones and original flavours such as salmon, parmesan and olive.

Ice Gourmet

The only ice cream parlour in the country where the ices are made by a renowned chef. Bertílio Gomes runs the place together with his wife Maria Santos, and they like offering unusual flavours. Examples include eucalyptus, rose, carob and peanut as well as other more conventional ones such as strawberry and chocolate, of course.

These are artisanal ices, made from real fruit, served in a homemade waffle cone.
