Now that summer’s here, we’re guessing that an urge for ice-cream is starting to become a bigger and bigger part of your life. Luckily, we’ve put together a quick guide to some of the best ice cream places in the city.
Gradually turning into a small empire, StikkiNikki has gone from a little kiosk ten years ago into having nine city-centre locations today. All of them provided with their own, freshly-made, organic ice cream every day. Their newest addition at Mariatorget is different as it is completely vegan, otherwise it resembles the other StikkiNikkis, having 12 different flavours changed day-by-day. Texan Nicole Pepper is apparently serious about her craft – “good ice cream is no laughing matter,” she says.

An ice-cream project started by two brothers with the aim of making beautiful hand-crafted ice-cream, located by Hornstull on Södermalm. They put it best themselves: “If you want to enjoy your life to the fullest you should be eating this ice cream.” Apart from the ice cream – they offer six flavours at a time – they have also attracted attention for their creation of an ice-cream burger. A donut filled with a scoop of ice-cream of your choice, complete with ”crackers for crunch and sauce for yum”.
