Eyescream and friends
Alright, we admit the name might be a bit weird, but there’s nothing weird about what they’re selling: fantastic ice cream. While there are only seven base flavors available (strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, yogurt, cheesecake, wildberry yogurt and mango), the variety of toppings makes up for it – there are more than 20, and you can choose two for each serving.
Address: Passeig de Joan de Borbó, 30.
La Heladeria Mexicana
The only Mexican ice cream parlor in Spain, this is a place with not only a unique personality but also flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Not only are all their ice creams artisanal and made with only fruit and water, they offer varieties as rare and surprising as soursop or mango with caramelized chili peppers. If you’re looking for something delicious and unforgettable, this is the place to go for an ice cream in Barceloneta.
Address: Carrer de la Mestrança, 49.
This ice cream and chocolate shop in Barceloneta is a real treat for those who like the sweet stuff, with marshmallows and macaron cookies also on offer. A modern looking place with friendly service, Vioko is the definition of temptation. Well, why resist it? Made with only top quality milk and the freshest fruit, their Italian-style gelato will have you come back over and over again because you’ll want to try them all. To start, we recommend the marvelous yogurt & fig flavor.

Gelaaati Di Marco
No, that’s not a typo, they do have that many a’s in their name. It’s just how exciting their ice cream is. Another one for the lovers of true gelato, Di Marco offers a wide variety of flavors, including several lactose-free and vegan options. They are very generous with sampling, so it won’t cost you anything to give it a try – and we’re sure you’ll have to buy one after because they are reaaally good. Don’t know which flavor to try first? Go with the tiramisu and you won’t regret it.
