Best Of Amsterdam #19 – I Scream…

1 Comment

It could be a bit warmer here in Amsterdam, but when it comes to ice cream any temperature outside will do, as long as it is handmade Italian ice cream by Monte Pelmo.

This success story started in 1957 in a snack bar in the middle of the Jordaan area, where the owners served loads of spaghetti to Italian guest-workers.

From pasta to ice cream wasn’t a big step. Since 1966 they’re at the present location.

Their shop is only open during the spring and summer months, from 1 in the afternoon till 10 at night.

  1. It’s 7:30PM here and the kids are getting ready for bed. I wonder if they notice if I sneak some ice-cream right now?
