MADRID, SPAIN. As you walk down Calle de Fuencarral going in and out of shops on a hot summer day, or if you walk around Malasaña and get a craving for something sweet, be sure to stop at Mistura for ice cream.
A small ice cream is 2,60 euros and larger sizes can go up to 4,20 euros, a little pricey but worth it for the quality. You get to choose from their specialty and tasty ice creams, and then choose one topping that they then mix into the ice cream on a cold stone (and they have great, simple toppings like nuts, chocolate, jams, and dried fruits). The ice cream is all natural, with no additives or artificial flavors. The milk and yogurt are locally sourced, and the place cares about sustainability.
Last time I was there, I got banana sorbet and I had brownie mixed into it. The ice cream was creamy, and I plan to go back any time I want ice cream. I hear their pistachio and dulce de leche flavors are really good. They also serve coffee, tea, juices, crepes, and deserts.
The place is small, but there is outdoor seating. The interior is rustic and clean.
Wi-fi is free. The servers also speak pretty good English.
