This was one of my first favorite spots when I moved to Hamburg Winterhude in 1999 – for years now I visit this ice cream parlor a few times every summer. I am always looking forward to the poppy seed creation or to rhubarb and cheesecake ice cream together in one pot, mmmmmmmm!
Every type of ice cream is freshly made each morning, try the refreshing lemon (THIS is lemon!), the dark brown chocolate (THIS is chocolate!) or the delightful strawberry ice cream! Or maybe rice pudding with cinnamon – oh, it is quite a decision… But you can return! Besides choosing scoops of ice cream you can also order different ice cups like banana split, diverse fruit cups, the delicious ice chocolate or ice cups with red or green fruit jelly.
As is usual for ice cream parlors the inside of the café is not inviting you to sit down, but there is no need to. Outside you’ll find two wooden benches to rest, to lick your cream and watch the bustling life of poelchaukamp. Just beside the café runs one of Hamburg’s little canals and it is very nice to stand on the bridge and look down at the canoes or pedal boats passing by.
