The sun is out and temperatures are rising. After roaming the city streets, strolling by the lakeside, basking on a terrace and taking a dip in the lake, it’s time to savour an ice cream. To help you quickly find the place that sells your favourite flavour, we’ve put together a selection of the best vendors in Lausanne.

Labo Gelateria

You’ll find Malou Zryd and her scrumptious artisan ice creams in a former bus shelter in Chailly. Her Italian-style ice creams are made without cream. She offers the classical flavours that everyone loves such as vanilla, stracciatella or chocolate, as well as more exotic ones from Asia (matcha, black sesame and ginger…). The LABO is aptly named, as Malou experiments with flavours. We advise regular visits to taste her latest creations!

Loom Gelateria

Located at Boulevard de Grancy 45 in Lausanne, Loom Gelateria is one of the most renowned places for ice cream in the city. During the summer season, it’s not unusual to see a long line of Lausanners and visitors waiting to taste one of their famous artisan ice creams. The flavours on offer are often surprising and unusual. Best of all, Loom is located nearby Milan Park and the lakeside.

Glaces Veneta Ouchy

Does enjoying an ice cream on the water’s edge sound tempting? Then head to Glaces Veneta on the Ouchy lakeside. Amaretto, Bubble Gum, Salted Butter Caramel, Chocolate, Fior Di Latte, Double Cream with Meringue, etc., you’re sure to find one (or more) ice-cream flavour to your liking. A mouth-watering treat! Besides, the small stand is right next to the pedal-boat rental. How about a spin on the lake?

In the heart of the city, at Rue Enning 8, GeA Gelateria Artigianale offers ice creams and sorbets, as well as milkshakes, Sicilian granitas, frozen yogurt, etc. To make sure everyone enjoys the tasting to the full, the ice-cream vendor has decided to display information about intolerances (lactose free, gluten free or egg free).

Paleta Loca

Have you already tasted paletas? For those of you who’ve never heard of them, they’re popsicles made from fresh fruit that are a hit in Mexico. And since 2016, thanks to the Paleta Loca start-up, you can savour them in French-speaking Switzerland. In Lausanne, you’ll find them at the Pointu, Al Sacco’s or the Grenette.

How about you, where will you go to treat yourself to an ice cream?
