Gelateria di Berna – Perfect ice cream

Gelateria di Berna opened their first Zürich-based parlour to huge fanfare recently. Originally from Bern (hence the name), their arrival brought hordes of hungry locals, and I figured they couldn’t all be wrong!

I dragged my husband halfway across the city for our first visit. We were lucky, and only queued for a few minutes before we reached the front of the line and I had to make one of the hardest decisions ever… This place prides itself on using the best quality, seasonal, local ingredients, so there were loads of gorgeous summery options along with plenty of rich, chocolatey ones. I settled on a cone with two boules; fior di latte and raspberry and ginger. Both were perfectly smooth and creamy, and the flavours of the ginger and raspberries really popped.

After some subsequent testing, I do agree that this place is probably the best spot for ice cream in Zürich. The staff are very friendly, the prices are reasonable and although they have no seating inside, the square out front has plenty of benches and chairs where you can sit, soak up the sun and experience creamy bliss…
