Welcome to Debrecen!


All About the Ice Cream of the Year + Best Ice Cream Places in Town

In this year’s competition of the National Confederation of Hungarian Confectioners, the chilly, blackberry, chocolate masterpiece named Bíborka became the ice cream of the year.

The ice cream was made by Gergő Fehér, a confectioner from Békéscsaba. Behind Gergő Fehér, Andrea Koncz was the second from the Sissi Ice Cream Parlor in Gödöllő with his balsamic fried blueberry, soft goat cheese ice cream, and Brigitta Márton was the third with the ice cream made with sweet sour cream and Cumberland sauce from the Bagaméri Ice Cream Parlor in Balatonfüred.

We hope that we can soon taste the ice cream of the year in Debrecen,  but until we can get unforgettable taste experience in these places:

Mandula Confectionery in the heart of the Great Forest and next to the Csokonai Theatre

Next to real classic pastries, such as Szőke or Gara confectionery, you can get really good cakes and ice cream at The Mandula Confectionery. It started in 1986 in the heart of the Great Forest (you can still find it there too, Ember Pál street 23) but today, you can also find them next to the Csokonai Theater. It is deservedly famous for its artisanal ice creams and cakes.
