As the temperature rises, there’s nothing quite like indulging in a scoop of creamy, refreshing ice cream. Debrecen offers a delightful array of ice cream parlors, each serving up their own unique flavors and creations. 

Join me on a journey as we explore some of Debrecen’s best spots to satisfy your ice cream cravings.

I’d love to head straight to my favorite ice cream spot, to Szőke Cukrászda (Hatvan Street 6).  They set up a terrace outside during warm weather where I can enjoy views of the Reformed Great Church. I always go for the pistachio and salty caramel flavors, but there’s plenty of other options, including lactose-free and sugar-free. It’s a perfect spot to enjoy a sweet treat on a sunny day.

I recently went for a walk around the Fórum Shopping Center and discovered Primavera Fagylaltozó (Csapó Street 17.). This spot is perfect for ice cream lovers with its charming yellow-striped canopy. Although there are no tables, I could easily take my ice cream to go and enjoy it on a park bench or while exploring the city streets. It was a delightful find during my stroll.

I had a stroll past the Forum Shopping Center another day that may lead me to Primavera Fagylaltozó, where a charming yellow-striped canopy signals a haven for ice cream lovers. While there are no tables, the convenience of takeaway treats allows you to enjoy your ice cream on a serene park bench or while wandering the city streets.

Annuska Fagylaltbisztró és Kávézó:

Address: Piac u. 30, 4024 Debrecen

38 years of experience tell the story of Annuska café. They offer indoor seating with tables and an outdoor terrace under the trees, offering a view of the Great Church on the horizon. In addition to freshly brewed ice cream, you can enjoy Tuscan coffees.

I recently visited Cousin Fagyizó located at Bethlen Street 47. The portions were quite generous and the prices were pocket-friendly, which is why it’s a favorite among locals and visitors alike.

I recently discovered Mandula Confectionery, a delightful place that has been serving customers since 1986. They offer famous traditional cakes, coffee, and artisanal ice creams with a delectable selection of flavors. There are two locations in Debrecen; one is nestled in the heart of the Great Forest (Ember Pál Street  23.), and the other one is adjacent to the Csokonai Theatre (Liszt Ferenc Street 10.) I highly recommend stopping by if you’re in the area!

If you’re in Debrecen, you can’t miss out on the unique ice cream flavors at Black Sheep Coffee (Csapó Street 23, behind shopping mall Fórum). From Raspberry-Basil to Ecuadorian Chocolate, they have something for everyone. These handmade delights are perfect for exploring the city or taking a break from your daily routine. Did I already mention that they also do delicious snacks, cakes, and coffees?

So as you see from classic gelato to innovative creations, Debrecen’s ice cream scene promises a treat for everyone. Whether you’re exploring the city center or venturing off the beaten path, be sure to indulge in a scoop of joy at one of these delightful ice cream spots.
