Firstly this cafe serves brilliant hot and cold drinks with a good variety and competitively priced. The blueberry cheesecake was amazing, the best cheesecake I have ever had. The only negative would be the staff themselves, they rarely smiled and were pretty brusque.

I came here in Gamla Stan for the 'famous ice-cream', and even I left with more than what I had expected! Flavours ranging from Pecan to Saffron & Honey to Liquorice, this place has it all! Not just ice-cream either - delicious buns, coffees and...More

We only visited two ice cream parlours in Stockholm but this is surely one of the best. By any standard they had an overwhelming selection of flavours and flavour combos. Lemon liquorice was surprisingly good! We wanted to try about 6 flavours each.... The waffle...More

This is a great ice cream place with a huge number of flavours on offer. The cones are home made on the premises. Not cheap but great.

Friendly service. We had ice creams there, portions were very generous-sized. Gluten-free and other allergene information is very well displayed. For once we didn't have to remind the staff to use different ice cream scoop for gluten-free and "normal" cones!

One of the best ice cream I ever had in this very cute café/ice cream parlor in the old part of Stockholm. Everything else looked very yummy too Really the perfect place to stop after having walked for hours in this beautiful city!

I'm not sure if it's the best icecream in town but it's really delicious. Fresh waffles. You have a lot of choice and some more unusual tastes like Marc de Champagne-Hazelnut. The Tiramisu icecream is exceptional :-)

Were looking for a table in the sun, a quick meal and a beer. Cafe Järntorget could provide it all, although service could have been better and the price level is a bit over average. But a table in sun on a cold day in...More

There is not much to say. The ice cream I tasted was very good!. The reason I "only" give 4 stars is because it is crowded and I felt I had to hurry up to order. But it is worth the effort Prices are high...More

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
