Greece – Athens – Ice Queen Gelato: They’re Waffling Around With Vegan Desserts


My friend Sophia of Veggies Don’t Bite shared this recommendation for Ice Queen Gelato on her Instagram:

I’m in gelato heaven and I never want to leave! We’re currently staying in this incredible house in Athens (used to be an old mansion), and about a 2 minute walk away is this ridiculousness Ice Queen Gelato. I scarfed my weight in melon flavor (when I say creamy I’m not giving it justice). I asked the guy how in the world and his response was “because it’s my specialty.”

Ice Queen Gelato in Athens, Greece is well-known for tons of vegan treats

This ice cream cafe is in the center of Athens, close to Acropolis. They have numerous gelato flavors that are clearly labeled as vegan, plus many topping options for sundaes. In fact, they even have vegan waffles with vegan “nutella” and dairy-free whipped cream. I heard rumor that their new bubble waffles are also made vegan, and it looks like some of their other desserts might be vegan. But the descriptions on their posts are all Greek to me! So be sure to check the labels in store and double check with their staff.

On the warm side, they serve coffee and espresso drinks with dairy-free soymilk available.

It’s open 6 days a week, from morning until night, but they do shorten their hours in the winter months.
