1. OGGI Gelato

The shop has an incredibly welcoming environment and offers their ice cream at a reasonable price. The place is popular for a reason, and it is definitely worth a try!
📍 Carrer Comtal, 15
2. Mannà Gelats
Mannà Gelats is on a quieter street, and it’s a real hidden gem. The shop has a large variety of flavours and a focus on tropical fruit flavours. If you are looking for a place with unique flavours that still maintains the quality of homemade gelato, this is the place for you! Manná Gelats also has many delicious vegan and gluten-free flavours for those with any dietary restrictions. The original, diverse, and inclusive options make Manná Gelats a great choice.
📍 Carrer dels Banys Nous, 22, local 1
3. Gelaaati Di Marco
With one of the largest menus with traditional ice cream flavours and sorbets, Gelaaati Di Marco is sure to have something you’ll enjoy. If you’re looking for traditional Italian flavours or different types of chocolate, this is the place to go. The shop also has Italian pastry classics, like homemade fresh Tiramisu and Sicilian Cannoli’s. Alongside Manná Gelats, Gelaati Di Marco’s diverse menu is very accommodating for those with dietary restrictions as well.
📍 Carrer de la Llibreteria, 7
From hot coffee to sweet pastries and cold gelato, DeLaCrem has a little bit of everything for everyone. With a vibe much closer to a regular coffee shop, DeLaCrem has many places to sit down in and outside the parlour to enjoy their homemade gelato. While it doesn’t have as many flavours as some other places, they are very unique, taking inspiration from several other cultures with a changing daily flavour.
📍 Carrer d’Enric Granados, 15
5. Un gelato por te
Un Gelato por te is the most low-key of the shops on this list, but its gelato is made with clear passion and fresh fruit. For a ‘less touristy’ vibe, this is definitely the place. The shop is more tucked away, but not a very long walk from the nearby public transit. Notably, the owner is very energetic and clearly puts a lot of love into his craft! Un gelato por te has all the standard flavours one can expect in an ice cream shop, but with more care and dedication to quality.
📍 Carrer de Sant Felip Neri, 1
