There are really many pastry shops and specialized ice cream shops in Belgrade. It's no longer a matter of taste but a way of making, the origin of ingredients and, of course, aesthetics. Organic, vegan or black ice cream, exotic flavors, extravagant packs give us happy dilemma today. The offer is sometimes completely silly, but definitely unforgettable. As much as innovation is interesting, it seems that classics, their majesty vanilla and chocolate will never be removed from the throne. These flavours are the same as a little black dress, a white shirt, a pearl necklace or a red lipstick - eternal.

It is well known that ice cream is an Italian product prepared by the traditional and always hidden recipe. Less known information is that it was actually produced for the first time in China, but we will consider Italy as the country of origin of ice cream, at least until the true truth is proved. It used to be accessible only at the courts and royal table, and it used to be a real luxury. Fortunately, the time has changed. The story of the creation of ice cream in cones is interesting. In 1904, a young man gave a bouquet of flowers wrapped in paper to his girlfriend who worked in a cake shop in Louisiana. She wanted to give him a present that would look similar, so she made a cone out of wafer and put ice cream in it and served him.

Because of great love and true respect for the delicacy that returned the smile on our faces many times and made the day more beautiful, we are introducing famous ice cream shops in Belgrade. These are places that nurture, make and truly love evergreen flavours and tradition. Regardless of whether you are a member of a chocolate "team" or pure vanilla lovers, you will certainly not be wrong in choosing these ice cream temples.

Unofficially, Moritz Eis was the first to present the sweet novelties that rule the world and is definitely the pioneer among many contemporary pastry shops. Hand made ice cream of magical taste comes from natural raw ingredients. It comes from organic fruits and vegetables grown in Serbia. Fruit ice creams contain over 50% of fruits.
