Tasty, but small scoops😒

There were few vegan options. The ones we tried were tasty (dark chocolate, peach and forest fruits), but the staff was inanttentive and the scoop sizes were very disappoting for the price.

Cons: Scoop sizes

Good taste but meh

No doubt the three vegan sorbets were super delicious. But the scoop size was minimal and the personel kind of made me feel like they didn't want me in the shop. Could have been an unlucky day.

Not many option and not really tasty

There were just three flavors (dark chocolate, kiwi and strawberry), I got kiwi and chocolate but they were quite tasteless. Plus, for two cups it was around 17 leva, so I think it was a bit overpriced.

Who said vegan ice cream?

Perhaps the only ice cream parlor that makes vegan cones (confirmed). As for the vegan ice cream options, they are clearly labeled, most of them are sorbets however.

Pros: Vegan cones

Cons: A little bit pricey

Good sorbets

All of the sorbets are vegan, including the chocolate sorbet. And they are quite delicious. Obviously it would be nice to see some vegan non-sorbet ice creams, but I guess the time's not right yet for such a "drastic" change.

The cones do contain eggs, so make sure you get your ice cream in a little pot instead.

Refreshing gelato with unique flavors

Tried their dark chocolate sorbet and a peach flavor that included herbs. Very refreshing on a hot Sofia summer day and I appreciated that they had some more unique vegan flavor options. I can’t remember the exact price but I remember it was slightly more expensive than I would normally go for, but if you’re in the mood for vegan ice cream and you’re in Sofia, this is your place.

Pros: Unique flavors, Multiple options, Good location

Cons: Price

Only sorbets available

When I went there were only fruit sorbet flavours available... (on a friday lunchtime)

Perhaps different days have actual ice creams!

There was also a huge queue reaching all the way outside the shop.

Left disappointed

Pros: Can join non-vegan friends here?

Cons: Only sorbets available, Extremely busy on hot days

3 vegan sorbets

When I went there was a choice of: strawberry, citrus and kiwi sorbets. They were delicious, but in order to have a place on HappyCow they should offer vegan ice creams instead of just 3 sorbets.

Pros: 3 nice, fresh sorbets

Cons: Overpriced, No vegan ice creams, only sorbet

Vegan ice cream in Sofia

Love their ice cream (even in the winter!). The cone is actually vegan, so you don't have to worry about that.

They usually offer 2-3 vegan options each day and, luckily, they're not only sorbets. You must try the Gayo chocolate!

Pros: Delicious ice cream, Vegan cones

Cons: Not-so-friendly staff

Good vegan options

So, while they don't have thaaat many vegan options, they ones they have are delicious, especially the vegan chocolate one (I forgot it's name, but ask for it if you don't see it).

Unfortunately the ice creams are the only vegan options there- the cakes and sandwiches are not.
And the cone isn't vegan, so get the ice-cream in the cups :(

Cons: The cone is not vegan

The best ice cream in Bulgaria.

It is a great place and I visit it very often. They usually have 2-4 vegan flavors everyday, I wish they had more choice as the fruit sorbets are nice but i'd love something with coconut milk or a nutty flavor. The cones are actually vegan, I have asked the owner. The staff speaks English.

Summer vegan ice-cream

It's 35 degrees in Sofia right now and this place saved my life! Ordered two flavours - vegan chocolate and vegan fruits of the forest, both were very tasty and refreshing. Staff speaks very good English as well. And it's cheap. Can only recommend this place :)

Great gelato!

So exciting to find vegan gelato for our summer stay in BG. Their flavors are rotating and some are better than others (e.g. we've seen almond & dark chocolate, but other days we've gone & they've had flavors like melon and banana that didn't interest us as much). Four vegan options on any given day, less than that if it's later in the day and they've run out. Great spot!

Pros: delicious vegan options, helpful staff (and English speaking), affordable

Cons: flavor selection varies
