Gelados Neveiros – Ice cream like it used to be

Gelados Neveiros (Neveiros ice creams) is probably the oldest and one of most well known ice cream shops in Porto.

Whenever I wish for ice cream, Neveiros is the first to come to my mind. They are REAL traditional recipes, homemade with fresh ingredients, mostly seasonal fruit, besides the traditional flavours.

Summer or winter, who cares!

When I was a child, I used to go to their “factory”. We had to ring the bell, an old lady slowly opened the large, heavy green gate to let us in to a wide room with its marble containers with their cone metal lids. The number of flavours could be reduced, but they were really yummy. It was almost magic to go there!

Years later they closed there, but later re-opened with a shop downtown and the same traditional recipes and good flavours. Now Gelados Neveiros recently moved closer to their original location, in the city centre (although not really downtown).

The shop is decorated in a nice kind-of-vintage way, and they have a really old cart there that was once used to sell ice cream on the streets.

Independently of the season you should try the lemon (mandatory!), dark chocolate, strawberry, raspberry, and so on. When it’s the warm season, you should try fig, melon, water-melon, peach or during the cold season the persimmon, or mandarin. But of course, all those added to caramel, cheesecake, or port wine ice cream. Better choose for yourself!

They have take-away boxes, and ice cream cakes.
