It’s not a secret that walking around the city centre makes you hungry, especially in summer (which is usually really hot in Kiev, by the way). If you feel like having some sweets, you should go to the Kostyolna street where Umka Ice Cream is located, hidden in the ground floor of one of street’s buildings.
The first thing you should know about Umka Ice Cream is that it’s named after a Soviet cartoon (Umka) and that means a sweet white bear cub. It’s no wonder Umka has been chosen as a symbol for organic ice cream made with home recipes. What ice cream flavor do you like? Umka has something for you, including some unusual combinations. I prefer the salted caramel and gorgonzola.
In café Umka Ice Cream you’ll get not only ice cream but also coffee in summer and hot mulled wine in winter. The ice cream-mulled wine mix looks nice and tastes good. This is worth trying!
