The beginning of March marks the opening of several ice parlors in Utrecht. Our When in Utrecht team has been looking forward to this time of year and are happy to share our favorite places to get some ice cream in this article!

I just love the ice cream at Il Mulino’s. I pass this ice cream store almost every single day and it’s definitely a challenge to not enter and get a delicious scoop of ice cream. Since I found out that they also sell amazing milkshakes I am really hooked. Already dreaming away by the thought of sitting down in the sun at the iconic ‘Steiger at Bemuurde Weerd’ with ice cream from Il Mulino. Love it!

When you live in or near Zuilen you will probably know the ice salon Roma. For almost 60 years they serve one of the best ice creams of Utrecht. With more than 35 flavors, you have always some choice that you like. They even have lactose free ice cream! Since I live in Zuilen, this has become my favorite ice salon.

I would bike an extra 5 km for Roberto’s. When I lived on the other side of Utrecht I literally did! My favorite flavor is Frollini, hazelnut cookies mixed with creamy vanilla. Fun fact: every week they have a new Mai Prima. Never seen before at Roberto’s and it will not come back after that. Famous flavors have been breastmilk, weed, and beer and I am still dreaming about their Elderflower one!


Dutchie Laura lived in Utrecht for 10 years. And the Domcity has developed ever since. More and more coffee bars have popped up and there are a lot of places to grab a sandwich on the go or stay for work. Best of all, Utrecht has a wide variety in of restaurants. Laura’s favorite? Anything with sushi, pasta, Indian, vegetarian, burgers, fish, meat, classic French… she’s not picky at all!
